Can it handle 4k resolution (4096x3072)? Click to change the resolution and choose "Original". Of course, you can't really appreciate it unless you have a monitor that can do 4096x3072...

Block comes with thermal paste, but I'm opting to use the excellent Gelid GC Extreme on the 2 GPU's

Temps are very nice, should have a lot of headroom for overvolting & clocking :cake:

WEI scores improved but not by much (7.4-7.7)

Initial run of 3DMark Vantage gave a score of: 25273

Hoping to smash the 30000 barrier when clocked :P

wow, that looks really sweet scara! congrats!

I was wondering, where do you get those black coils that are going around the tubing? How much do they cost?

Also, give it a try on folding (not for folding sake, but to see how well it handles it). I'd be interested on how fast those GPU's can fold and if it even effects the temps any

Will do buddy thx! :storm:

As for coils, they are anti-kink coils to prevent tubing from kinking, have a look here, they ain't expensive:
