Also, You might get better gpu scaling with some cpu overclocking. Try and up the speed on that 990 and see if it helps. Not that you need more performance, but who knows
When overclocking an intel extreme edition cpu by upping the multiplier, windows will still read the cpu speed at stock even though it's running faster. I usually keep it between 4.6-4.7. My Vantage run was ran with physx off. The main score to look at is the gpu/graphics score for both Vantage and 3DMark11.

What gamers do these days just to get a few extra fps and higher resolution. Honestly those gaps between monitors would annoy me but other wise cool computer!

Yes, that's on PCIE 2.0 running at x16 x8 x8, and yes they gave me a pretty decent bump (something like 25% more, not shure), over 2SLI 580s x16 x16 on my mobo GA Z68X-UD7-B3.

I only use a slight bump in voltages for these overclocks. Runs pretty cool with air cooling.

Wow, nice rig dude, but I'm a little bit disappointed by the scores: only 10% approx. over the Z68 chip and 2600K processor (my scores), expected more form X79 chip and 3960X.
PS. Could You run a 3DM11 at eXtreme, and post the results (just to compare)?

Am I the only one entertained by the fact that there's a picture of the keyboard... and a picture of the mouse... But not a picture of Quad-SLI 590's?

This thread is great. It'll be interesting to see if someone with 3x HD7970s provides benches in a couple of months to compare. So far it looks like 3x GTX580 are actually better than Quad-SLI 590s.

Wow.. Necro thread...

Nice to see some others posting their results!

Have made a couple of updates since those Quad-SLI GTX-590s!

Now I'm running EVGA GTX-580 Classified (3GB) 4-Way SLI @ 960MHz/2200MHz!

Pics:




Benchmarks:

3DMark 11 Xtreme:


3DMark 11 Performance:


3DMark Vantage:


Unigine Heaven 2.5:


Was able to run 3DMark Vantage @ 980MHz:


Can someone help me figure something out?

If you look at my scores, especially 3DMark 11, the Physics score is pretty LOW at just a hair over 10,000! I've seen guys with 2600Ks get more than 11,000 and others with the same CPU (990X) around the same clocks (~ 4.4GHz) also get more than 11,000. Why is my Physics score so low? I am quite sure if I can get that to around 11,000, I can get the Performance preset score to around 20k!

Adam>> that 3960X has a FILTHY Physics score man! More than 14,000! Incredible!

Picked up a Mamba 4G also!

I'm think that 3DM11 only test CPU (not VGA) for PhysX.
BTW, awesome scores Basha.

Time to buy a $200+ digicam to give that $5k rig the justice it deserves!

Thanks man!

With regards to the Physics score in 3DMark 11, I know it tests the CPU. That's why I asked about it because there are guys who have the same CPU (990X) around the same OC who get Physics scores of around 11,000.

Some guys with 2600k, which is not as good as the 990X as far as processing power is concerned, get 11,000! My question is, why am I not getting similar Physics scores?

lol.. are you talking about my rig? I think you are off by about $5k. XD

The monitors alone are more than $4k. Add the 990X and 4 gtx-580 Classified (that's another ~$4k)... and it adds up quickly. (including tax of course)

I will be doing some reviews etc. soon..
