Very cool, ill post a pic of what I did with my 290X Trio.

Btw what was your reasoning for buying the MSI gaming editions (Not questioning it just curious what your thoughts were for those). I chose Powercolor
I didn't buy the MSI 'game edition R290X's. Everything you see in that picture was sent to me by AMD as part of a exclusive 4 part project/review I am doing. If you read down the entire thread, it lays out the two builds I am putting together. One is the top APU A10-7850K with the A88X Bolton chipset (HUB) and the other is a quadfire MSI 4GB R290X. I am adding the liquid cooling ( a 5 rad quad pump setup)
I have been working with AMD for a while now on this project and what I linked to is the build log for the start of the project.
I will say that I am thrilled with the choice of the MSI game R290x , it performs and many times out performs the 780Ti. When I get waterblocks on them I am expecting big things.

Oh my bad I didn't see that those were specifically sent to you, I thought you had selected those yourself because of overclock potential or such but was curious if you knew some advantages with those specific cards since you are excellent with batches on chips and such. I know MSI gaming are normally better clockers, but was curious if you thought out of the options they had the best OC potential of all. I had been reading the article but I had not gone through it yet in great detail because I was still at work, ill give it a good read through.

Yea I saw your A10 build, cant wait to see what you pull off with that. I just built a friend an APU build with a 7850k and I overclocked both the CPU and GPU on it.

I wish I could still be into it like I used to but my money has gotten a bit tighter lately. I can't wait to see some pics though with those blocks attached (both before and after install.) I'm still too scared to go with real water.

Robots, electric vehicles, and lots of other random things. Plus 1/2 way through undergrad in mechanical engineering now. More relevantly (maybe will receive it's own thread eventually) a 24-core, quad-socket Opteron 8431 machine with 64 gigs of ram, all crammed into an old full tower Lian Li case <pic>.

I see the project is coming along nicely. I'll be putting together something nice once I get to South Korea.
