Up Close & Test Setup


Up Close/Test Setup

Starting off with the making sure we're not CPU bound, as much as possible, we have an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. Beneath the Corsair H100 cooler lies our Core i7-3960X overclocked to 4.6GHz. Data is pumped via Quad-Channel Corsair GTX8 2400Mhz RAM.

What is better than a ASUS Mars 2 at the heart of your system? Oh yes, two of them in SLI. As much as we are used to handling some hefty hardware setups we never quite get used to seeing £2200 worth of GPUs sitting patiently waiting to be abused.

Besides the obvious stuff we've also got on hand a 3D Monitor, three Iiyama Prolite monitors for widescreen gaming. Underpinning everything is a pair of Corsair AX1200 PSU's and Windows 7 x64.

Some massive results from SLI, nothing is coming close to them for a while anyway.

I really enjoyed watching the video review, Nice work on putting together such a great review, it's the sort of thing you don't see terribly often someone doing a review just cause they can. Keep up the great work! Quote

I've been looking forward to reading this review since you gave us a peek at the setup.

I'm kinda disappointed and impressed at the same time. You would expect mind blowing out the box... I guess no one expects someone to spend £2k + ON GRAPHICS ALONE!!!!

Thanks for the review Tom, I can't see anyone doing the same review for quite some time lol.Quote
