Here's some AS SSD scores from the drives, First are the Intel 520's in RAID0 on SATAIII ports, then OCZ Solid3's RAID0 SATAII ports, then WD 500 Blacks on SATAII ports...well the WD's were taking too damn long to run so I'll get that shot added later ;) lol....also added new system specs to main post :occ2:

Recently updated a couple parts. Was tossing around the idea of getting an Ivy but since they like to run warmer I just went up a step to a 2700K and so far it runs a lot cooler than my prev 2600k due to being able to use less voltage :) Dumped the Antec 620 for a Corsair H100i and picked up a couple more *C ;) Picked up a Gigabyte HD7950 WindForce 3 to replace the pair of 6950's. Once I get the clocks and temps where I want them I'll tear it down, clean it up an get some new pics up :smoke:

Not too shabby, bench wise it's hard to compare against crossfired cards but I did have some old results from when I was only using 1 of the 6950's and it's a major improvement. Unfortunately I got a REV.2 card that seems to have to voltage lock on it so it will only let it use 1.25v, so max clocks I can get so far with it is 1075/1550. Since it's locked I can't monitor the VRM temps either but it does have a sink across those as well and I have the side fan on the case blowing directly onto the card so that helps. Core wise it's seen 62C at those speeds with 75% fan speed on the card. Been playing with the card bios in hopes of stumbling across one that allows me to adjust the voltage but no luck so far. Sucks as I've seen this gpu chip running at 1200/1600 several places :( but I guess since they were only rated at 800/1250 to begin with what I'm getting on it isn't that bad after all lol.

Here's a shot of a weeks worth of stress testing, flashin vga bios and temp monitoring. Got it stable at 4.8GHz on cpu with vga at 1075/1475 clocks....will run other benches at 1100/1500 but 3D Mark doesn't like those :( lol

New stuff's installed, just got the yet to be released enhancement kit from Gelid for the 290/290X card so will probably do another tear down to get the right heatsinks on my 290X. I'll get the OP pics updated since I've changed several things around since then ;-)
