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.
