Yeah i didnt screw the cards in, when i screwed them in the first time and powered on the rig i heard the scariest noise in my life, card 1 fans were smashing against card 2 and card 2 fans were smashing against card 3, i nearly had a heart attack , i immediately pulled the plug to avoid an expensive headache ha ha.

To remedy this i basically just used the silicon spacers that came with my D4, wrapped them in electrical tape and placed them between the cards, works like a charm.

I ask this because I'm looking for a good case for triCF/SLI and it seems hard to come across one that will do the jump sufficiently.

Thanks
Well there are a few cases that do air cooling quite well like the HAF X, where i had identical temps (was my first case), although i think tri SLI in an enclosed case even like the HAFX might get a bit more toasty than open air. I
mostly just like the look and the ease of access to my components with open benches. Pretty easy to move around to Lans etc.

Hi mate

I have this cold boot issue too, now I do use a multiplier by 48, so can i still disable the PLL voltage to be still stable at 4.8GHz?

I am desperate for a fix, it started 3 days ago and i always have to clear the CMOS and the load the OC BIOS again which is not really a long term solution....

any help appreciated, nice job on the rig mate!!
