More than enough grunt! Home everyday now, so wanted to go back to tinkering with a desktop and clocking the nuts off it. :D

You are insane.



Be sure to post pics though. ;)

I thought you had 580's and were happy out. What made you change? Coincidentally I ordered my second one of these (F.T.W's) over the weekend. Hopefully will be with me this week

I was going to buy another GTX 580 3GB from bagman (Who bought the other from BennyboyUK) I then was looking at keeping them long term (Due to nothing but rehashes coming out this yeah), so I was looking at waterblocks.

As these cards are non ref, trying to source 3 waterblocks, was going to be a pain, and was going to cost double in shipping due to buying from multiple places.

So I weighed it up, and thought "this is going to be a waste of money investing that much into waterblocks now." So that's why I decided to get something that is future proof, and will hold it's value long term. :)

Cool TG! I so want one of those backplates for my 2GB EVGA 670 FTW! The way the mobo is arranged in my Silverstone Raven RV03 the backplate would look great. Can't find any in the UK though. :wallbash:

What about ordering it direct through EVGA?

You're crazy, and it entertains the hell out of us! Keep buying this awesome stuff! :D

GeorgeK 25th Feb 2013 15:55

I ordered a 680 backplate from them (EVGA that is) and they were speedy with delivery...

T_G - are you aware 670 isn't the best one? You appear to have bought something that isn't the best one. Are you ok?

There is nothing in it between the GTX 680 and the GTX 670 FTW. That's why ;)

flame696 25th Feb 2013 16:06

i hate you Simon I really do. Im sat her with my lonely 7970 and there you are buying 3 GPUs you can get your filthy hands on.

Jealous...me?? No not in the slightest......................................... .................

hamza_tm 25th Feb 2013 16:09

So what was the reasoning of these bad boyz over a Titan or two?

jinq-sea 25th Feb 2013 16:10

Enjoy!

But that would be false advertising! Seriously though I found the backplate didn't do anything for temps, it just looks pretty. The high flow bracket for the back did actually knock 2-3C off the temps though :thumb:
