I couldnt wait any longer Eyefinity UPDATE 4/19/11

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

As you may recall I was asking about what card to get for eyefinity and so on. Well after seeing an awesome deal for a 5870 eyefinity 6 I jumped on the bandwagon and got it. It was a risk do to the fact it was from saphire so only 2 years support by then I should have upgraded.

Ok back on topic so my 5870 arrive today and I couldn't wait like I was suppose to do. I was suppose to wait and install everything in my new house but that's getting renovated and junk. Well the card itself was big

Un boxed my other 2 Samsung led monitors and got to work setting up somethng temporary. At least my gal will use them for work a lot. Multitasking and remote control for 2 other pc's

I have to admit the card rocks by itself on 1 monitor giving me good 60FPS average and 80Max. On eyefinity however it dropped to 35-40Fps average and I have to say I am ok with it.

Well here are some pics for now I will follow up once my office is done and I will post updated pics.

Ok so after much consideration I decided to get an enclose my system and sell my itx so i can go crossfire. I have added pics of everything and I will still have to water cool it so kee tuned. Once I have everything complated office, desk and pc I will add my system to the eyefinity club.

Enjoy the pics.
OK guys I did not feel like starting another tread showing the ever evolving eyefinty build. Codenamed Baby Ship (need a better name but my server is called the Mothership)
Here are the pictures of the new case Lian Li PC-V354 and its inners enjoy.
1 x Core I7 950
2 x 4gig Corsair XMS3 1333MHz
1 x 60Gb OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
2 x 64Gb Corsair Nova's
1 x MSI X58m
1 x Sapphire 5870 Eyefinity 6
1 x Lian Li PC 354











So Water Cooled & wire management today 4/21/11

























Well the temps went down like crazy from idle on air of 115F to 95-99F and never passes 139F on load. Love it love it and on a side note this is done by 120 rad with a lame stock lian li low seed rpm. Once i change those to high rpm fans I might drop the temps some more.

will Update as soon as I unload some rads and receive my slim rads. I also have to order window kits and so much more. Ah such a money pit just to go from a itx sytem to a micro atx so i can have crossfire.

I know there is eyefinity club but my set up is not worthy yet to be in there give me 2 so I can finish painting the office and junk.

For the record i went this route because I will get a second one and crossfire them. Ive seen the benchmarks and its perfect for the games I and a good way to get my feet wet to crossfire. I understand 6xxx scale wicked better but for $150 new its a huge steal and if i can get another one for $200 that would be cool.

Enjoy the pics.

The scaling should be better in eyefinity, I think.

As long as the cat does not touch anything, you should be fine. You could also ground your cat.

are you referring to the monitors I have no clue they were set up to test the card and see if my hard earned cash was worth being spent on eyefinity.
IT WAS!!!!

I tok them down now since the angle was to much I have to set up my desk in its entirety so i have room for everything.

Again this wont happen until I move to my new home.

Again fear of cats biting cables was the determining factor of buying the case, the fact that I fell in love with my server case and thanks to the guys at HArdForum posting pics of their v354 I decided to go with it ASAP LOL.

I almost put a RX360 in a 350 series case, but instead went with more of a htpc theme in the silverstone lascala. The 350 series are cool lil cases, big boy sff.
