    New 3DMark03 WR with 3-Way SLI: 103888

    After one week testing and benching my homemade 3-Way SLI setup I managed to push it to 103888 points in 3DMark03





    CPU cooled with my rotary cascade (made by cold_ice) and Ultras cooled with Swiftech Stealth watercooling (provided by Finnish computer shop Jimm's PC-Store)





    Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 @ 4706 MHz
    EVGA, MSI & Leadtek GeForce 8800 Ultra @ 720/1760/1180 MHz
    EVGA nForce680i SLI
    2 x Kingston KHX6400D2ULK2/2G @ 3-3-3-3 1T
    Silverstone 1200W PSU
    Windows Vista 32-bit
    ForceWare 169.25 WHQL



    I can't publish the score in ORB (atleast yet..) since 3Dmark03 doesn't detect the QX6850 CPU. I just contacted them about this issue.

    (Thanks to Intel, EVGA, MSI, Leadtek, Kingston, Jimm's PC-Store and Elektroni.fi)

    wow, nice results

    Could you tell me please if there is enough room to phase cool all 3 graphic cards? It looks pretty cramped from here for a gpu evap between the cards.

    I'll run the test tomorrow again with E6750 or E6850 and hopefully it will recognize the CPU, or it might be Vista issue.

    Or good containers

    So far triple-SLI only works with Vista, yes. Chances are, that it will remain that way.
