    How about you resize your pics? Looks quite big on a 17" screen like mine :)

    If you look at this member's short post history, it seems clear he spam posted until he had enough to post images. For what, I'm not sure.

    Mailpup, you dont seem impressed, not saying I am. Probably because of the pictures.

    Should have went 2x gtx 260's, purchased a small ssd for the os and used the hdd for storage or something.

    Idunno, the pictures are huge though.

    Well, he does have a nice system but yeah, those pictures. If the purpose of this post is to show his rig, he could have done a better job. Not only are they huge but horribly composed and not very clear. Camera phone I suppose.

    But back to the system itself. For triple SLI I would probably go for a little more power although evidently 850W is enough. I guess I just prefer more head room. Myself, I use a Corsair 850TX for a single Radeon HD 4890 and in another rig I use a Silverstone OP850W for a single GeForce GTX 295.

    BTW, who mounts their case fans on the outside of the case?

    kayawish23, what kind of games do you like to play on your system? I'm curious as to how well the Corsair 850TX works in triple SLI.

    looks like it would not fit on the inside, with the size of the HS

    It's outside because it will hit his cooler if it was inside,although i wouldn't use it then but that's me.

    I must add quickly,it looks so awesome at 4GHZ, i hope my 720BE looks almost as good when i try to get it to 3,8GHZ.

    Sorry,i was reading some other stuff when the page loaded and didn't refresh before i posted.

    If you can send me a copy of your settings that would be great,the best i have achieved sofar was 3,7GHZ that seemed stable,but i haven't been able to get it again.

    Thanx

    Nice system.. Built with exterior fans and brown parcel tape :) Though i would have went for 2x gtx 280 for better performance and less power usage.

    Why dont those gpus overheat? The fans are all covered up?
    Whats up with the gallery thread?? :O

    Pics are kinda big; I can't even see them fully on my 24"

    Nice system but why exactly are you posting this?

    Why are you resurrecting a dead thread? Or for that matter, why did I respond :haha:.

    Wow I didn't even see the date... I just saw that it was only a few down from the top of the forum and thought it was recent :)

    My bad, ignore my stupidity :)
