MSI Radeon 5870 Four-Way Turbo Charged with LN2 By Deanzo

Today we take four reference MSI 5870's and see what we can get out of them when we strap liquid nitrogen pots to each and every one of them.

Introduction

 

 

Today we are taking things to excess. Most would say that one MSI 5870 is ample for most gamers, but when you have a motherboard like the EVGA 762 4-Way Classified, it seems like a crime not to use four.

 

Four 5870's in CrossfireX with an overclocked gulftown CPU is a monster setup in anyone's book; and they would be right. But I say NO! - We want more and by more, I mean more drama, theatrics and excitement. So, it's time to bring out the soldering iron, strap on more copper than can sink a small boat and really get these cards pumping.

 

For some time now I've looked forward to some 5 pot action; that's liquid nitrogen containers on the CPU and one on each of the MSI 5870's. But one hold up, or should I say hardware failure after another has made this long overdue. At long last those false starts are behind me and I am finally ready to let this monster setup loose.

 

We have prepared a video on how to turbo charge your 5870's for some over-the-top benching fun.
