I've had a massive look at the GTX 465 in so many different ways; I'm at the point where I have tested the card (and cards) in so many different configurations that I wondered if it was worth even looking at the configuration we're looking at today.
The bottom line is that after overclocking the GTX 465 from MSI with the latest version of Afterburner and discovering that there was just an absolute mammoth amount of overclocking headroom when voltage came into play, it would almost be criminal not to give the same treatment to an SLI setup.
I've already stressed the importance of the GTX 465 in SLI. Apart from it offering great scaling and great value it's one of the best options for people who are interested in running Surround Gaming for the simple fact being that SLI is a requirement for the setup. I'm not about to get into a discussion of that being a pro or con; the bottom line is that if you want a triple monitor NVIDIA powered setup, SLI is needed.
With massive OC potential seen from the single card setup, what happens when we throw two cards into the mix; how's the heat going? - Can we achieve an OC of over 800MHz on the core? How's it compare to the GTX 480? - These are questions we intend to answer today and more.
First, though, let's check out how we went with overclocking. We've got our fingers crossed for big things. Let's just say that if the performance wasn't anything special, we wouldn't be here right now. So read on.
