I'll post some pics and benchmarks as I go.
I've got my watt meter hooked up and the first thing to do is gingerly see if 620 watts is enough to power this thing. I decided to hold off buying a new psu until I see for myself because Linus TechTips was only pulling 5xx. I will know soon if I made a good decision. I didn't take into consideration the cpu draw that can occur at the same time so it may be interesting...
I've got to head out so I'll add unboxing pics later tonight. The benchmarks may have to wait because I need to download them (and crysis 2) and only have 1.5 gigs left on my weekly bandwidth limit.
Update(3/26 in the PM):Well, I couldn't stand not oc'ing it a little. I got a 3dmark 11 score of P8958 with these clocks:
Peak power consumption: 575W
Peak temp w/ custom fan profile: 82C
Update(3/26 in the AM): Got a 3dmark 11 score at stock gpu settings with my i7 at 3.2 ghz. Max power consumption was 559W.
Update(3/25): Unboxing pics (I'm not the best photographer). I like Asus's simple but effective packaging. None of the unnecessary bells and whistles some of the other guy have. Now its time to install this things and see If my PSU can even handle it. I'll be updating this throughout the next few days with benches and such.
