Why go SLI at the first shot?

Why not? :D

 

 

Limiting upgrades in the future, then again, with two titans, i doubt you need upgrading anytime soon xD

SLI problems are there as well, but not everyone experience those.

 

You realize that Frank has these cards lying around, right? :lol:

The idea for me was to minimize my costs by using what I had on hand ( I can hear the groans now)

I chose the wrong profession, I knew I should have gone to be a reviewer, I want spare titans too! :lol:

Ok Its pretty much built and just being tested before I button it up. Still a little dusty but it will get cleaned up when I finish buttoning it up.

 

First picture is of the innards. The Logo on the pump will be green as soon as I change out the lens.

Second Picture is the reservoir with the Ice Dragon coolant. Got Milk?  

 

Still need to finish the wire management and button up the case. The back fan is getting replaced with something a little better looking

The front rad fits nicely although a bit tight at the top.
