  • Nice specs but it needs some air flow even with "liquid cooling"

    And i think they were going for 24 GB 3 x 8

  • Looks like a Silverstone GD05 case, Those 780 Ti SLI look like it's going to be starving for some air.... I thought about going crossfire/sli with this case, however just too tight. Maybe even water cooled. Interesting to see am 80mm CPU radiator cooling the CPU.
