sparetimepcI got the second card all lit up now as well, ( short video here https://youtu.be/zEBGw7ZiWOY ) it must have made the video cards faster (LOL) was able to get the #2 spot in the Port Royal Hall of Fame three times this morning with 2x SLI. Scores of 21,681 and 21,663 and 21,685 https://www.3dmark.com/compare/pr/218227/pr/218143/pr/218136#
sparetimepcSo i get home yesterday to Illinois from a road trip to Arizona delivering some priority medical supplies to a facility and decide to mow because the grass is pretty tall, then i wake up this morning and theres 7 inches of snow on the ground. So usually i'm done benchmarking this time of year but gosh since theres snow i figured what the heck. Installed my new 9980XE that had just got delivered and did a few tests. Ended up moving into the #12 position http://www.3dmark.com/spy/11532857 in the HOF for time spy extreme graphics score with 2 cards and #3 Position in Port Royal HOF for 2 cards. http://www.3dmark.com/pr/244804 Inside temp was 22C but was still able to get the coolant temp down to 0C and no condensation with the chiller because of only 20% humidity in the house right now.
danlentI noticed the block also hits the three R15 things next to the power connectors. And needs multiple thickness thermal tapes. I just ordered more fujipoly. Hopefully will get this set up soon on my 2x kingpins. My extreme XII formula arrives tomorrow.
