    Will see, may have a buyer for the SC card, and I will look to get another F.T.W card. :)

    It's OK, now that I'm getting used to it. But still prefer Windows 7. :)


    No worries mate! :D Once you keep metro to one side, it ain't too bad. :D

    To be honest Win 8 does feel very smooth. :)

    :p:D

    Really? I bet you wouldn't! :D

    Yeah, I was looking into all those mods, and add on's, to make it run and look like 7. :)

    Yep, Will get a 4th F.T.W card, as someone has just bought the SC card. :)

    FTFY :D

    Thanks :D

    I tried Windows 8 yesterday, since if I manage to upgrade today my dad wants to run Windows 8 so I thought I would try it.

    Seems all the issues have been fixed that I had with it, apart from the overclock on the cpu not showing in Windows but that was soon sorted by using a mixture between the Asus Windows software and the bios.

    Did some benches on it, and found I was loosing up to a max of 5000 points on 3D Mark so I will be sticking to Windows 7.

    I'll check it out - I did use a free one when Win 8 first came out. :)

    Cool - Well I have some great OCing results and Score's from 3DMark 11 Extreme to come!! :D

    Just trying to reach the top of the 600series results! :) (Would be easy with a forth F.T.W that clocked the same as my 3!) :)

    This is the best I can get, limited by the EVGA SC card. :)

    F.T.W cards overclocked to....

    1372MHz Core - 7800MHz Memory!!

    SC Card overclocked to....

    1320MHz Core - 7700MHz Memory!!

    Overclocks only possible in 3DMark 11. :)

    CPU at 5GHz.

    If I had my old Processor which clocks to 5.4GHz and another F.T.W card, I'm pretty sure, I could be in 12th Place.

    Heaven 4.0 Extreme settings 8xAA

    F.T.W cards overclocked to;

    1306MHz Core - 7800MHz Memory

    SC Card overclocked to;

    1267MHz Core - 7700MHz Memory

    My Custom made Air tunnel's has given me greater overclocks on the memory - As it helps keep the back plates cool, which cool the VRAM on the back of the cards. :)

    By making a seal between each card, gives maximum airflow, which gives maximum cooling, exhausting all heat out the rear of the case. :)

    The fans I use are - Scythe Kaze Jyuni Slip Stream 120mm Fan 1900 RPM. the air flow from these, are fantastic! :)

    I like the "rustic" look of that wind tunnel.

    My Crysis 3 clip using Quad SLI - 2560x1440 - Maxed out - 8xMSAA - My Custom Ultra Config.

    As I have recorded this Realtime video with Afterburner whilst playing, there is about a 20% performance hit on the FPS.
    I struggled to get over 20FPS average in Tri SLI using 8xMSAA- But QUAD SLI has managed to give 60FPS Average with 8xMSAA! :)

    Wha?!?

    You mean quad SLI has 300% scaling compared to tri SLI?

    Hmm. I think that my next major upgrade (in 2+ years' time) will have to be quad SLI!

    If true that's pretty impressive!! Always seemed to me that quad sli offered little over tri

    Top video. I am in the middle of a build right now which will comprise of 2 MSI gtx 660(non ti but oc) 16gb Black Dragon Ram and 3570k. Will I be able to Max this game for 1920x1080?

    Yep, but only in Crysis 3. (Haven't tried Crysis 1, 2)

    BF3 was showing a performance hit with Quad SLI. Also not many games can take advantage of Quad SLI, as my GPU Usage was 50-99% across the board, being more or less the lower end of that scale.
    So we need better optimized drivers for Quad SLI and games to be coded to suit. :)

    You should be OK with FXAA, but 2GB VRAM at 1080p will not be very future proof, unless your happy with running FXAA, which has less VRAM impact. :)

    If anyone else would like a video of a game with Quad SLI, then speak up! (Depending if I own that game). :D

    I'm here till 11:30 before going around the in-laws for lunch. :)

    But I will get your request(s) done in due course. :)

    Public youtube clip, the odds on Gunsmith disliking it seem pretty low
