    The price.. seriously,

    500£ for each card, 1500 £ total?

    Where does the rest of the ****ing 1000 £ go, dear lord.

    I'd understand if it was 200-300 £ for equipment, but 1000 £ dear lord.

    My eyes are bleeding out, one can buy 3 gtx 980's with 3 full cover water blocks, a pump, reservoir and one 360mm rad for quite a bit cheaper than that, and the result would be a lot better looking and performing sli setup than this

    The idea is good, the price is just insane lol. Hope that people dont buy these overpriced products so that these companies will learn how to treat us right (not that i hate gigabyte)...

    I would say in the water cooling system, but don't know how it's worth that much....

    its obvious that the performance will be amasing.. there are 3 GPUs, but the aplication as it is, is hard to implement, or just stupid (as a personal comment).

    I'm guessing that rig in the picture doesn't run very well at all... looks like someone forgot to plug in the power leads to the cards... :)

    Even if it was a 1k I would not go for it. One can build something better looking and all will be hidden inside the case.

    Aaaand it still is ugly. And very expensive. And on the last pic it looks like you'll have a hard time using anything that's between that Frankenstein-looking thing and the first 5,25" housing, like usb ports and power and reset buttons and audio plugs...

    Anyone else think that Gigabyte has wasted a lot of good R&D money for this piece of junk?
    It's a Gigabye from me.

    if you have a budget like that for a watercooling loop just for your GPU(s) then just custom watercool it by yourself.

    You could get a MO-RA3, mount 3x360 rads into it, and tube it to not just your GPUs but your CPU, RAM, and motherboard as well

    and i'd be willing to bet it would STILL work out cheaper than that abomination.
