Four cards will be modified with a fifth card used as a stock reference checkpoint. Three are from Galaxy, one from GIGABYTE and the last un-modded card from EVGA.
The GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD9 is extremely reliable when run with subzero cooling and will make an excellent platform for this pre-testing.
Memory will be taken care of by Corsair Dominator 2000 CAS7 modules.
To make sure that the cards receive clean power, the Antec TPQ1200 will be utilized.
