    A fridge would be a dumb idea since the compressor would die out from being overused. What he needs is a plane ticket to the arctic. :eek:c:

    With 4 680s you could get some immense processing power in folding, SETI, or whatever else you want.

    There are non-conductive liquids he can immerse the entire computer into to get some amazing cooling. Mineral oil, for example. I'll never do that, though.

    You KNOW that 4-way SLI isn't supported by Nvidia, dont you? I mean you can run a couple of benches, but games... and expect them to work well.. ummm you'd be bettert of with only one GTX680. lol

    I'm pretty sure that Gainward cards are different from reference cards so there will not be waterblocks for them...perhaps for the new 6xx series, but i know you couldn't get them for the 5xx series cards

    no wonder there is a short supply of 680's... because of people like you buying six at a time. I can't even buy just one!

    I'm assuming you're going to RAID0 your Kingston SSDs?

    If so, you would be better off swapping them with Corsair Performance Pro's as they support background garbage collection in RAID0, which the Kingstons wont

    Good luck!

    Nice hardware dude!! Those two 690's look sexy as hell!! Though I'd be very tempted to put them under water.

    Looking forward to completion with benchmark results, and a nice photoshoot ;)
