post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have decided to go with two gtx 470s and water cool them and my phenom what would be the best way to cool them
can it be done with a single pump
do i need to buy two pumps and does it have to be mc655
what price/performance ratio would you recommend i would like to keep a 600 or less budget if possible
dont include tubing i can get that 15 c a foot at my girlfriends work
same with hose clamps
and i would like uv reactive die

um, AMD boards dont support SLi, and im pretty sure that the Asus 785Gt-v Evo would not be a sli hackable board. so you cant use your GTX 470's in sli. AMD limits you to crossfire which is only ATi cards. should have looked into that.

Maybe you could just overclock your gpu and that would make it faster? sli usually doesn't scale that well anyway. Just make sure you know what you're doing and ask on these fourms.

well then maybe ill goto my original plan of 2 6950s to unlock or get a sli board for 114 bucks would the 6950s really be worth it over 2 470 at 1920x1080 or would i just be better off getting my 470 watercooled i want to play crysis 2 with decent settings
and if i had two gpus do i need dual loop for good performance

If it supports CrossFireX, it can be hacked to support SLI as well. As far as I'm concerned anyway, I don't know why this board would be any exception.
