Description

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. Only problem I had was that in order to have two 120 fans on the radiator and a 140 on the other side meant I have to drill new screw holes and move the fans over a bit so they didn't hit things on the mobo. Including the 3 radiator fans I have 6 120's and 1 140 total.

**Edit So far I have just overclocked my CPU to 4.4 ghz, and my ram to what it should be stock (2133), because it was running at 1923 before.

2 gtx 660 sli= gtx 680, but you were way better off just getting a 670 or 680 with that price.

Why didn't you use the h100i instead of the H100? Another thing why not go for the 670 or 680 instead of the two 660. Everything else looks good !

Not really worried about anything over heating but the i does look slightly better. Just my preference of going Sli.

You have a watercooled CPU, and your GPU(s) vent the heat directly out of the case. Why so many case fans? I like the look though.

The ones in the case didn't have led's and I wanted them so I bought fans to replace them, ended up having extra fan slots so I put the other ones back in.

Nice setup. Good cable management. The orange theme cannot be ignored.

With the H100, I would definitely try at least a mild overclock. Otherwise it is a bit overkill on the cooling. Though I have no problem with overkill. It improves your options down the road.

What kind of frames are you getting with the SLI 660s?

Case looks really nice!

The 3gb on the 660s will be useless with their memory bus limitations, but they should perform decently nonetheless. Looks pretty good!

Why Ultimate? Do you speak another language? Why 660 sli? Could have got a nice 680 and then sli'd down the line. Why H100? Why 2133Mhz ram? Why orange build with a blue mobo? Why raidmax? Ahhhhhhhhhh!

Good job, and that's a hell of a lot of fans, but it's overall a great build. My only concern is that it's a little cramped. But otherwise, great job!

2 660ti's... They're still not going to be use to their full potential, the memory bus will bottleneck it

He got 660 non ti. At least in the partlist.

Memory bus still sucks on it

If I do overclock I won't have any bottleneck issues, but seeing as I haven't had any problems, there is no point in messing with anything now.

Overclockng the GPU core itself will not help with bottlenecking. If anything, it will increase the speed at which your card will bottleneck.

The memory bus speed (speed at which memory travels in and out of the card) is not GPU dependent at all; it is dependent on the clock of the GDDR5 VRAM in your video card, and the width of the memory bus. This width is denoted in bits, like 192-bit, 256-bit, 384-bit

So if you want decrease the bottleneck, you need to overclock your memory as you cannot increase the bandwidth of your card.

Overclocking memory in some cards will create more heat then other cards because most reference heat sinks are good for cooling GPU cores, not the VRAM. you could potentially buy a 660 with VRAM heatsinks but this particular model does not have those I believe.
