    the GPU fans aren't NEARLY as loud as my two 7800GTX's. Not even close.


    Very nice score Jonny.

    Glad to hear they're quiet boards. I just removed my 7800gtx from my water loop in anticipation of an upgrade to an 8800 or r600.

    It's more loud and annoying than I remember.

    Yeah.. I know what you mean.

    I did have water cooling my 7800 cards, but put the stock cooling back on the so I could get some benchmarks for an upcoming water cooling kit review and I thought the same thing, "Geez... were these things this loud?" Fortunately, I'm getting used to it again.

    FYI: I only measured 455.9W coming from the wall running 3DMark2006.

    Assuming the Ultra 1kW PSU I'm using is only 80% efficient at this load, that would mean my DC output is only 364.72W.

    Running the "CPU tests" (where I'd only get about 2fps) I was only pulling 300W from the wall. The test that used the most power was the airship and dragon scene.

    Naturally, I expect there to be a 3DMark2007 w/ DX10 support that will push the cards harder. I will do it again at that time.



    Oh.. I had this bottle of wine the other day. What's this mean? Wine that pays to OC (Over Clock?) That sounds appropriate.

    Yeah. It's a QX6700 in an eVGA 680i board with 2GB of PC8500.

    No. I got the new "Coolbit" (forget what they changed the name too) when I got the 97.44 drivers. The old Coolbits didn't even allow the new driver to show the overclock option in the control panel.

    LOL!

    On the Quad Father, with a mere pair of 8800GTS cards, no overclock what so ever, I scored a 12505 on 3DMark2006. Hmm.....
