    I have the 8800 GT. I understand you. Reply

    Lol, well I have a Pentium 4 with a 8800gt albeit with a $200 sound card because I'm a musician. I built it in 2005 or 2006. I can't remember. Reply

    Looking at the bracket and the height of the water block above the PCB, this is most definitely not a single-slot card. Reply

    Does height disqualify it? As far as width goes it doesn't appear wider than the slot cover, which screams "single slot" to me. Reply

    I think the slot itself is slightly technically slightly larger than the bracket, as there is a distance between two brackets in the hardware. The way it looks, it would probably not be possible to stack several cards of this width, but you might just fit a lot simpler cards (e.g. sound-card, controller) into the slot next to it. So I guess it's not meeting single-slot specification, but is likely to work as a single-slot in reality. Reply

    You're probably right, IIRC the distance between PCIe slots is 0.8" / 0.20xx cm Reply

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't this beast draw up to 500W out of your PSU?

    Given this, a recommendation for only 3x120 as cooling area sounds a little bit to less for me. What one could expect from this little bit of area are tempartures not much better then air cooled.
    If one wants this cool AND quiet, and this is more or less the aim for all custom liquid loops, i would recommend at least double area, and thus a really big enclousure or an external solution.

    Don't forget the ADM version uses a 1x120mm for the 2 GPU's and the temps are pretty decent. I think a 3x120 for the whole car will be fine. Now, if you try to throw a hot CPU and another card on there... Yeah you'll need more! :) Reply
