  1. I'm not sure the drives exist to be able to pull off a quad 7970 setup. You could go with two of these instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131483&Tpk=radeon%207990
  2. well as in there they are all liquid cooled and i didn't think they have 7990 waterblocks yet do they? this build originated as a friend and i decided to build our dream systems for fun and figured id post for some fun and talkative feed back on it.i did originally have 2 his 7990s in that but wanted everything massively overclocked

    I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to add liquid blocks but it more has to do with what the drivers can do as to whether or not you'll be able to run that setup.

    This is my dream setup:

    Those monitors can go from portrait to landscape. And that case requires its' own zip code. I left out cooling as this rig would require at least a $400+ custom water cooled setup.
  4. I would be drooling over these systems too much to look over them and make changes.

    But I will say this I would ditch the cases you guys have and build one out of legos. But thats not all it will be legos and made to resemble the Firefly class ship in well Firefly. And painted as such. For no other reason than I can. Finding ways to implement fans into the case without detracting from the look would be an interesting challenge too.
  5. i think the heat my overclock would be putting off the backplate would be too much for plastic,im just wondering. why 2560 1600 60hz over 3 120hz 1080ps? more for casual play and immersion than competitive?
