      What your radiator look like? Just curious.

        So I have an area on top of my case designed for a radiator. However, do I have any hardware options for this spot other than three individual 120mm fans? Any type of fan-pack that is one unit consisting of the 3 fans?

          Just put a 3x120 rad up there, then add the rest of the water kit. You will then really see the beauty of that case. I want one really really bad, but I can't justify the cost considering how much I spent on this damn lian li.

            As far as the screen pic goes, I used it for promo shots for my review on the Eyefinity6, and it was the most convenient pic I had for a 5760x2160 desktop - 12.5MP wallpapers are hard to come by, and the promo pic AMD sent me only needed the canvas size extending horizontally a little to make it fit.
            Hey Caveman,

            I have a beautiful 12531x7519 picture of Burney Falls in CA I took a few years ago. Definetly one of my best works. Its made from about 50 8MP pictures stitched together. The CPU time alone took 2 days on my P4. I currently have a 4ft by 6ft poster of it in my office covering what used to be a window before they filled in the courtyard. I challenge anyone to find a seem in it. Let me know and I can send you a copy (not for redistribution pls). Consider it a thanks for being generaly helpful Edit: I found a copy. Here is a low res version.

There is a channel in the back that allows cables to be routed wherever. The drawers are crazy deep and can have cables routed into them as well. The venting seems to be sufficient. CoreTemp did not pick up any notable rise in temperature. I am going to add a pair of fans to the back just to make sure.

                    Looks like you are going to need an even bigger desk soon if you want to stay on the cutting edge.


                    Alright, so your six-screen Eyefinity rig may not be obsolete just yet, but it's definitely just been knocked down a few notches on the jaw drop-o-meter. What you're looking at above is a prototype of PowerColor's HD5970 Eyefinity 12, which -- you guessed it -- packs twelve Mini DisplayPorts, along with a full 4GB of DDR5 memory. Unfortunately, there's no images or video of an actual twelve-screen rig in action just yet -- PowerColor is saving that for Computex in June -- but you can check out a few more shots of the card itself after the break.

                      That is ridiculous! I mean, it already was ridiculous. Now it's just unreal.

                        Yeah, I'm trying to figure out what the point of that is - you can't make single Eyefinity groups larger than 8k pixels on any axis, and you can't currently do multi-GPU Eyefinity groups (groups spanning displays attached to multiple cards), so this hints at there being interesting announcements coming @ Computex in June, possibly.

                              If it were a Fire Pro then I'd agree with you. However, there are no dual-GPU Fire Pro cards. So it's a consumer card, and business and professional users don't buy consumer cards, they buy professional workstation cards. Fire Pro.

                                So I can use a rad for air-cooling if I decide not to go liquid? Those things have fan's inside of them right? And, does the unit power itself? Again, I know nothing about this stuff.

                                    Uhh...I have no clue. But it doesn't make a sense. All I know is the heat pipe that has the fluid transfers heat.

                                      No. Water needs to be going through the radiator. It has to be going through the water block too (if you're wondering). You also need a pump, tubing, hose clamps, and even fans to move air through the radiator's fins.

                                      He's ancient and forever.
                                      He burns at the centre of time and he can see the turn of the universe.
                                      And... he's wonderful.

                                          It has fans in it right? Thought maybe you could leave the water out and just use the three fans as a mounted air cooling unit. However, never really seen one up-close (rad).

                                            Oh I see. I guess you could but it wouldn't be very effective as the radiator would block airflow.

                                                My intuition is that it would be better to plum your GPUs in parallel. Is this not the case?

                                                  That has been suggested to me before, but after looking around...there are various opinions on it.

                                                  Some seem to have great results, while others have worse temps. It just didn't seem to make sense to me. I still have components in the loop that need to be replaced for better components, so I think that would be minimal...

                                                  I just can't imagine how that would flow better, it seems like one of the cards would get all of the flow while the other just recycled it own fluid.

                                                    I just can't imagine how that would flow better, it seems like one of the cards would get all of the flow while the other just recycled it own fluid.
                                                    Think about it in terms of pressure. If both parts have the same impedance then they should both see the same flow if they are connected in parallel. The total flow may even be higher as the total impedance is also lower compared to both blocks plumbed in series (Z=R/2 vs Z=2R respectively). Even if the total flow was the same for both configurations I still believe this system will give the best cooling. Now that being said I would not plum to different blocks in parallel as that could lead to insufficient flow if one block is of significantly greater impedance .

                                                    The main downside is that in the event of a clog flow could stop flowing through one and you may not notice as the other block would act like a bypass and the total flow would not stop. If this happened and they were both in series then there would be a pressure build up that would help though not entirely counteract the effects of the blockage. If the blockage is bad enough and they are in series your flow could stop entirely which you would notice very quickly. I would not expect this to be a problem for a properly maintained system as you should have something to keep stuff from growing in the water and the water should be free of junk.

                                                    If you flow is high enough then the fluid may only suffer a tiny change in temperature going from one to the other and it won't matter which configuration you have.

                                                    For reference my main background in water cooling comes from working on the designing of a cooling upgrade for the DIII-D national fusion facility. It's a very different scale but is fundamentally the same. All our systems were connected in parallel and this worked very well though obviously we used much more instrumentation and regulation then inside a PC. The piece de la resistance was 6 1MW gyrotrons (big microwave generators) that each dumped 2MW of power into our cooling system.

                                                    Now where do I have those pictures...
                                                    Here we go. I am the dorky guy I on the right, my daughter is in the middle (same girl from the picture of the of my desk) and the lovely lady is my wife. The six monoliths behind us are gyrotrons that we had finished just in time for family day. Easily the funnest job ever.

                                                      Great advice, thank you.

                                                      I eventually plan to upgrade the pump, radiator, and reservoir. I will certainly reference this again when it comes time for the next upgrade.

However I had to move my TV Tuner up to the top PCI-E 1x slot above the video card. The fan of the HD 5770 is taller and was touching the tuner .
