    There is no way that a 860 is going to push out enough power to support tri-SLI, I would guess you forgot to add the 20% extra that is needed, also 680 has a max wattage of 250 (I would say that they will run at about 200w), 3 of those would be 600w and the CPU would be 150w at stock add 20% and we have 900w, then adding the h100 and other stuff you would reach around 1000w

    I did not add the 20%, but anyways I wont be doing tri-sli, I think the SLI-680 should work fine for me.

    Hey guys, sorry no updates yet. Still waiting on parts. The GTX680 4 GB are currently on backorder from my local shop. I have another question about the RIVF. I noticed you can run 8GB (2x4GB) or (4x2GB) RAM. Is there any difference, or which works better. I have yet to get the memory, but did decide on G.Skill Ripjaws Z.

    Generally speaking, less modules means less stress on the CPU's memory controller...

    However, the RIVF is an X79 platform - means it's a quad channel memory architecture...

    So, having 2x4GB kit won't use the board's and CPU's capabilities at max... also, 4x2GB is not too much for the memory controller - at least should not be...

    I'm a little late to the party but as someone who has built several very high end rigs, I am glad to see you went with the Nvidia cards. I ONCE went with Radeon cards. Never ever again....

    Plus the last build I did went a little different. Was going to 4 x SLI with 3 x Dell 30 Inch Monitors but instead I cut back to 2 x SLi with 1 30 Inch, and then I built 2 identical machines. Also I put multiple 27 inch on a 3rd machine...
