No pictures yet or review. I got the machine yesterday and still working out some minor things.
1. The thing is noisy because of #2
2. The thing is quite hot with an FX-55 and two BFG Nvidia 6800 OC ULTRA video cards.
3. RAM hasn't been tweaked and timed properly yet so system isn't running as stable as it should and as fast. For now BIOS is reset to default factory settings. Tuesday me and a o/c guru will tweak it and maybe O/C with some more cooling added to the machine.
For now benchmarks on 3dmark are at 21763 I have hit a bit higher, closer to 21800 but most benchmarks are around there. I would expect to hit a few points higher and hopefully get some decent performance out of this guy.
Pretty happy with this setup so far. I know it's not a laptop but, it's what I ended up getting with the money I was going to use for an Area51-m 7700.
