    they are decent but really need to be in a proper case and not in SLI.

    likely 780 classifieds hydrocoppers or lightnings with custom blocks. current cards are good but i'm still voltage limited for maximum overclock. (
    maybe another swap if AMD really gets their shit together but i deem that unlikely.

    I don't know what miraculous thing you're expecting Shroud... though I hope you realize that there HAS to be a voltage lock. GPU chips can only go so far.

    Like the GTX 560 Ti is highly advised to not be pushed past 1.1v.

    You may just be at the very edge, honestly. You should just accept it, you have nice cards, and the 1% performance improvement you'll get, MAYBE, is not worth the trouble.

    Pretty sure like all GTX 780s are hard capped to 1.212v.

    I think we can put shroudster in the enthausiast department, so he probably doesnt really care about the performance increases And I get why you want to change to different 780s when you are considering to make a custom watercool setup.

    which tbh is what you want as long as the top part is filtered, people may argue, but you want to draw positive pressure into the case, ive seen too many dusty insides in the builds and some wonder whats the reason for the build up...

    Do consider Saithes' post. It's very very possible Shroudster is at the end of the safe voltage limits. He could be on the edge of outright killing the cards if he tries anything more.

    If they are hardcapped, that probably still means 1.212 is still a "safe" voltage for the cards. Otherwise Nvidia would have put that voltage lower.

    But hes changing them mostly because of the waterblocks.

    I think it'd look cleaner if you put the rad first, and then the fan.

    Maybe, instructions said to put it like this though. Also little more tricky because the threads are on the actual radiator.
    Edit; nevermind, i found the extra set or screws to do that with.

    Looks really good Majesticii. Looking forward to better pictures that will do the build justice.

    You should keep the fan in pull to be honest (I assume that's how you've got it atm). It makes it a lot easier to clean and the performance (cooling) between push and pull is negligible. You could add a fan shroud if you really want the extra cooling performance.

    I like the sleeving too; good job! If I had to nit-pick it would be the colour-coded PSU connectors. Dismantle them and spray-paint them black or white!

    Thanks for the words or praise ^^.
    And yeah, i might just order some black connectors and replug the connectors.

    Just realized I never posted my Haswell rig on this thread



    Specifications
    CPU: Intel i5-4570k: @ Stock clock w/ NH-U14s CPU cooler
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC
    RAM: 8x8GB Kingston HyperX Black @ 1600MHz
    GPUs: ASUS GTX 670 DCUII & Gigabyte 670 WindForce in SLI
    Soundcard: ASUS Xonar Essence STX
    SSD's: Kingston 128GB boot drive & Crucial M4 256GB storage drive
    Power Supply: XFX ProSeries 750w
    Case fans: Noctua NF-F14 140mm fans with low noise adapter

    Peripherals
    Mouse: Logitech G400s
    Mousepad: Logitech mousepad from the Logitech booth at Dreamhack
    Laptop Mousepad: Mionix Sargas 900
    Keyboards: 2x CM Storm Quickfire Rapid for both my desktop & laptop
    Main Monitor: Achieva Shimian 2560x1440 monitor
    Secondary monitors: ASUS MW221U 2x & Xerox XM7-22w 1680x1050 monitors

    As you might have guessed by now, it's a silence focused rig which I love. The temperatures a little high with low fan speeds but at load I can still barely hear the rig running.



    Horrible chairs to use for prolonged use, but I've ordered 2x of the Ikea MALKOLM chairs, which should arrive with ship within the next few months

    Such a cable-fest! I like the Kingston-heads and the turret.
    I guess the left keyboard setup is for a different computer?
