    Hey Guys,

    Thought i'd start a thread up for my results for this quad sli setup and also the tri sli results.
    I know quad results won't be much use to anyone, but should be a bit of fun seeing what it does, along with tri sli.

    Ive got a power metre as well for anyone wanting to know power draw for either setup :)

    Begin with some shots of qaud sli installed, i had to use molex adapters to power the 4th

    He probably doesnt have C1E enabled, making it run at full blast 100% of the time

    these 2 runs arent back to back, slight difference in cpu speed and clocks, but within very little margin of each other, will do some proper back to back runs over long weekend, through the whole range :) Have a bit of tuning to do on the quad setup me thinks, but still not a bad increase in points, and thats with the 4 x cards stock clocks, they keep cooler than what i thought, even with auto fans, although im overiding them just to keep things chilled ;)

    Seems the Corsair 1200w is up to the task, haven't done any pro-longed gaming yet, but pretty impressed the psu is handling it and it was as easy as plug n play :)

    Top effort on the power draw figures :thumbup:
    so basically we could run 680 sli and OC'd cpu on a HX850 no problem :)

    If only we had a 4x 480/580 setup to measure just to see how far we have come!

    Nice scores mate :) This is for surround/3d or just fun lunacy? :)

    What volts do you have on the 3930k? I will start my OC adventure on that cpu tonight and try out quad sli 590s to see how they compare.
