    (Already bought the PSU. Was planning to buy a 6870 but changed plans.)
    Although it's a 408w PSU, its 34 amps on the 12v rail should be enough to power the GTX 560 Ti without worries.

    Do you have decent airflow running between them? What kind of temps are you seeing when pushing the cards?

    So, related to computers but not worthy of its own thread: I finally ran Unigine Heaven and did a Cinebench thinger....

    Heaven is like, holy shit. :OOOOOOOOOO GORGEOUS. I mean, I guess one can figure that from youtube, but still, it just looks so awesome rendered on my screen.

    I was wondering, how do I read the scores and stuff on Cinebench? I'm confused by that one.

    I have the Antec DF-30 and it was a nightmare
    :P

    Pros:
    1) There is a fair amount of space behind the motherboard tray to route cables
    2) Very cheap vs other comparable cases

    Cons:
    1) There's no real cable routing at the top of the case, (above the motherboard)
    2) The HDD Cages are non-removeable and too close to the motherboard, making it very difficult to change or add SATA Connections etc...
    3) It attracts dust! I have the clean it every 2 or 3 days.
    4) Everything feels like a very tight fit.
    4) The side's never slide in quite right, and when they do you almost always magically manage to miss that padlock loop that's supposed to stop people taking the side off and instead wind up with it not fitting through the slot bending the side.

    While playing crysis 2 the other night the top card was hitting 59c max and the bottom was at 54c max. Idle they are 35c. CPU isn't going over 55c max. Seems pretty solid to me.

    What the hell is up with "crossfire/SLI capable" motherboards spacing the PCI 16x slots so damn close together? Should be atleast 4 slots apart IMO. Most modern cases are equipped with 7+1 expansion slots.

    it has 3 pci x16 slots, you could use the top and bottom ones to have a gap in between if the sli bridge reaches (probably doesn't)

    but yeah, the looks of that image there's onyl 1 pci slot between each of the x16s, using 2 slot graphics card = no room

    supports 3 way sli .. as long as you don't mind 2 of them having no space for the fan :P

    Regarding PCI-E x16 Spacing I just think Xuvial meant in general, not that it didn't exist exceptions.

    There's the the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution for Sandy Bridge then. The one I was supposed to have..
