    Sorry guys but i just finished work had a nice 15hr day today just when i got these beasty cards.


    So every few months when a new cpu or video card comes out i go nuts and buy them all straight away and pay too much money ..lol but my loss is your gain so check out the pics and nominate some benchies and i will be happy to obliage.
    Sorry but i work a ton these days and my time to bench is very limited.
    Anyway here are some photos of what i had waiting for me when i got home, my wife was not happy when she checked the invoice!

    Anyway the benchmarks are on absoulte stock clocks, everything in the system is at stock in fact expect the cpu at 4150mhz but ram etc all stock.


    Let me say from what ive tested thus far these cards are

    1. quiet
    2. cooler (alot cooler)

    Never breaching 80 degrees in a tri sli config which is about 10 degrees cooler than the gtx 480. And the noise level is very much improved.
    Now i only have time for a couple of bench marks as im so tired and couldnt even be bothered to do this but i did it for ocau. So enjoy.

    Nice SSD.


    Every considered taking of the plastic on the fan end of the cooler so they will get more air in when SLI'd?

    Couldn't help but notice the large disparity between temps.

    Wow, you sure do like to blow a lot of money on just videocards!
    But yet again, people waste money on things they like such as cars etc. :)

    Did you have 480's before?

    I guess these cards are a major step up from them?

    Very nice vantage score, but the temps are a bit higher than expected at 93c for the top card, that's 480 temps, but as long as it remains quiet it should be ok.

    Hmm... I'd highly suggest plugging in the molex PCI-E power thingo O.O

    Last thing you'd want is to burn up the 24 pin connector :p

    Congrats on the epic purchase :)
