    You are wrong Mr. Chezman29, all the image are made with Rampage that has only one small fan on the gpu!
    You made a mistake with the Voodoo 5 6000!

    Thanks for the correction. I was thinking about the 6000.
    Are you guys testing that one as well? Or was it a kind of test to see if you could get it running with 4 gpu's?

    Ah, well, a bit ago I was reading an article somewhere that mentioned moving the fan over, which makes sense. See, all the heat dissipation fans are on the side, so the heat as to travel all the way over there. Not much heat transfers (to the air) out of flat copper. Therefore, having the fan over it really isnt doing much. Also, the fan bearings etc would be right over where the most heat is, shortening the life of the fan. If the moved it over, the fins could be directly over the GPU, and more heat would be dissipated and pulled away by the fan. If you look at the design of a CPU heat sink, the heat dissipation fins are directly over the CPU with the fan over that, which is why it works. Its simple thermodynamics, its seems ludicrous that video card manufacturers havent thought of it yet, unless there is something I am missing that prohibits the design I explained. Anyways, just my opinion, : peace2: Mista K6

    How do you think the system gets information to the card for processing? How do you think the data makes it from the card back to the system? The more powerful our cards get the more bandwidth they need, thus the need for the Accelerated Graphics Port.
    : omg:
    What I meant was that with systems we have today, and the games we play today, there isn't an absolute need for the AGP port, as nothing really pushes our hardware enough to require the full bandwith.
