    Haha...almost...
    It is rather the case, that too many cards go to reviewers.

    Btw CrossFire is still limited to four chips, this means you can only install 2xAresIII in a CrossFire setup, because it's a dual GPU card
    For other purposes like mining, you can use 4xAresIII

    hmm...I think Asus recommends to use a 1000W powersupply...To answer your question, I would say it should be sufficient even if you pair it with an X99 motherboard and an i7-5960X.
    Thanks for you answer !
    I will try and see when i get the card !! (hopefully) else i need to go invest in a 1000w PSU

    Well i already preordered it
    Ok i will try my 860w PSU first then if it works i will keep it, not gonna do majo OC on it, just factory settings i guess for now.
    About the watercooling i will be doing it in a Corsair 250d with 1 x 240 rad 30mm thick and 1x 140 rad 80mm thick, think that would be enough for keeping it cool.

    and ye not gonna mine with it, only games.

    Only 6 lucky reviewers Wonder who's getting one. Do I get one? watercooled MarsII vs AresIII
    Yeah surely mining is not viable on an AresIII, because of it's price, it was merely to explain the options.

    Haha...I don't think one of the @ASUS guys will help. It's more than a month now since I released my thread. They're as disappointing as the Asus RMA service is.

    Sorry to piss on this parade, but I have to warn you all buying this card, I bought a ares 2 for $2000 and fell to the hype. All ares 2 cards are dead cards that artefact, the card was useless. Not seen one person that had no problems with the card, do some research and see what I mean. RMA took about 4 months. Whole thing was a nightmare. No support from asus.

    Not saying this card will be the same, just warning you, I wish someone warned me before I got the ares 2 it was cheap made garbage.
