Well, they are both dual-slot cards - the Sapphire is just taller, about 2.5 slots, which looks like makes it impossible to put two on any mATX board.
For a dual card setup in this case, Sapphire is out.
I'm gaming at 1080p for now, but I am thinking about going to larger displays in the future, maybe a triple setup.

I am having trouble finding any real reviews for the Gigabyte (although Amazon / Newegg user reviews are positive)...but it's $50 less than the Sapphire right now!

Again, you mistakenly assume that the only benefit to watercooling is the OC headroom, and that is where you are just wrong. Since I'm going to be cramming a HUGE heat load onto those two rads (an OC'd 6990 and an OC'd i7-975), I wasn't even going for much more OC headroom than I originally had. I wanted the quietness of not having eleven fans, I wanted the appearance of a fully custom loop, and the implicit fun in building it, I wanted the e-peen of a custom loop and I wanted to be able to do it all in a smaller case than I already had. If that isn't enough, then sorry, but I'm very defensive right now since you attacked someones opinion and in doing so, attacked my own build for no real reason whatsoever.

edit: Also, since you seems so hellbent on the phrase "Extreme oc," a first gen i7 at 4.3-4.5ghz and a 6990 at around 1ghz is quite an OC.

And now a retroactive apology since that got way more hostile than I intended it to.

On another note, all my parts will be here on Tuesday, so I should have build pics up by Tuesday night as long as nothing is missing.

Guys quick question should i buy corsair h80 for 70eur, new one is around 100eur? I have i5 2500k and this awsome case tj-08, but i worry about noise. I have my case less than meter away, so 180mm fan is a little loud on low(around 800rpm).


Tnx sorry for offtopic

The all-in-one (AIO) coolers I've tried always have a little bit of pump noise. I prefer to get a quiet air cooler if noise is a concern.

I ordered my TJ08B-E last night, and it should be here tomorrow. Add me to the club. biggrin.gif I have no immediate plans for water cooling, but it's possible in the future.

What CPU are you running in that and how are your temps? Contemplating ditching the H80 for a custom loop for my Tj08-e 24/7 TC rig (2500k). at 4.8Ghz the Ubuntu sensors were seeing 72C as highs for some demanding WUs... trying to see if I can lower the temps a bit and crank it back up to 4.9 (or 5Ghz again, but that's really wishful thinking!)

Well running on a 3570K and temp are around 35 idle and up to 60 at load with 4.3ghz, fans on medium. Will try my delidded 3570K as soon i got my new thermal gap filler...

you should try aligning those nice 24-pin just for a bit of an extra tidiness look.
