    umm, x1900xt's are some of the hottest cards out there, how would it be the king of low end non-sli setups?? you could definitely run this in SLI without a doubt. :confused: :confused:

    Not a very good picture of my sink. It is a Sythe Ninja. Kind of buried under the ducting. Cools a X2-4400 nicely.

    That looks pretty slick, just clean up the wiring a bit and it would look really tight.

    I thought the Scythe Infinity was a task and a half to install on the P5B Deluxe? Also, why do you have your X1900 in the lower PCI-E slot?

    Really? You get better 'non-graphic' related benchmarks with the GPU in the other slot? I have not heard that, but I have a asus a8n32-sli with a single 7900GTX so I might give it a try. I'm always looking for that extra +.1% increase! ;)

    thanks...yeah, I gotta do some cleaning of my wires and I'll be good. I'm waiting on some low noise case fans, and then I'll do it.

    heck no. Scythe INF was a breeze to install....just press on 4 push knobs! :) Can't get any easier than that....no screws behind the mobo, nothing.

    Yeah, when I took those pics I had the X1900XT on the bottom slot.....gotta READ the manual sometimes, eh?! :p That's why I was wondering why my 3Dmark05 scores were always in the 9700's....then I swapped it to the correct PCIe slot, and viola! x16 speed, and my scores jumped to 13K

    all is well now.

    I dont see how that cooler is going to fit between even a 3 slot spaced SLI mobo... SO, i think the king of videocard coolers will cool, the king videocards setups.. ie, SLI and cross fire. Any cooler thats too big for SLI or crossfire, is just a good singal card cooler at best.

    On the Asrock boards, it will accept DDR2 or DDR. SInce he has DDR, he has to run them in the slots shown. Not in alternating slots as you would for normal Dual Channel.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    hmmm... thermalright seems to say that its "SLI/Crossfire friendly for those serious gaming enthusiasts" looks like im sorta right?

    [​IMG]

    ohhhh! and a photo!

    and if you turn the bottom cooler upside down, itll fit in a single spaced SLI mobo. i pretty much guarantee it. thanks for wasting my time.

    You can't use the sli connector in the picture shown. You would have to turn the bottom one upside down.

    flexible SLI bridge?? and for crossfire, there is no bridge, just a dongle.

    This is the older version Cooler Master Hyper 6 that is all copper. Weights like 2lbs. I have 2 Zalman Quiet fans on it and it runs super quiet on low speed and still cools quiet well.

    *you can see the old XP90 in there somewhere
    *also the SLI coolers, and dead silent!
    *also a pic of the front 2 92x38mm thermaly controller fans

    Nope, it can take up to 4 stick of regular DDR on the main motherboard.

    The doughterboard that lets you upgrade to AM2 has DDR2 RAM slots on it.

    Their ToughPowers are actually very, very good PSUs. I wouldn't (as of right now at least) trust any of their other models.

    yep they are pretty solid. They do have one downside though, and that is they aren't that efficient.

    TTP got em on over @ OCF. He's xfire tho. And he's got an 830 w/ side cooling. Even in my setup, it eats up a lot of space. It's def the best single card cooler, but may pose some issues with dualies.

    I still wonder why we can't get a heatsink that's uber long, flat, and exhausts out the rear... :(

    exactly! it HAD a reputation for poor power supplies....the last couple, specially these TT's are some of the best if not the best you can get, for the money and modularity:

    if it wasn't for the "aestetics" score of 6, it would have romped....

    Surpsingly this seems to hold them on pretty well. I even had trouble getting getting the test heatsink I used on the dlink to see how it would hold up.
