    Unimpressed with my XFX 6870 crossfire... something wrong here?

    Just a suggestion, I did read OP, I formerly ran CF 6970's and my first driver install was corrupted, and i cleaned it out with driver sweeper and re installed and they ran fine.

    Unimpressed with my XFX 6870 crossfire... something wrong here?

    Wrong, I have seen it many many times online, usually has to do with user error when installing or driver issues. First thing you try is uninstall,driver sweeper in safe mode, then re install latest drivers.

    Best 2-slot non-rear vent aftermarket cooling for 580GTX 3-SLI

    Only cure is an air conditioner, getting better coolers for your 580's is going to add even more heat to your room, the better your pc's coolers are, the hotter your room gets.

    How much RAM is too much, then?

    8 is more then enough, I run 12GB, and have never seen it over 6GB usage once ever. As for BF3 load times, SSD makes the difference, has nothing to do with RAM amounts/speeds.

    High temperature in SLI with Arctic Cooling Accelero cooler

    Put a couple good 120mm's on the side panel, also mount one at the end of your cards, you have to force air into that few mm gap, or it is a lost cause(I used to run SLI 460's before adding 3 120mm's top card was over 90C gaming, after fans stayed below 65C.

    Why do you hate Apple? (intelligent discussion)

    Looks are, well feminine to say it nicely, cost is 3X anyone else, heat issues, get viruses (come on apple is impenetrable!) resale value is comical, I could go on for a long long time.

    Good fans for H100.

    Good fans? do you want more performance, or quieter operation then the stock fans? The fans that come with the cooler are plenty good enough and move quite a bit of air, now if noise isn't a problem grab some delta 3300RPM. If you want close to the same performance with less noise, then grab a...

    Something isn't right (Corsair H100)

    Someone is out of the loop, many coolers beat the true 120/140, phanteks ph-tc14pe just beats out the thermalright silver arrow, and silver arrow just beats the noctua nh-d14.
