I was over at Nate's tonight and we were collaborating on testing. Well Nate happen to look down at the Kill-a-Watt meter and well..... pictures are better then words.

Anyone want to venture a guess at the system specs for the single CPU desktop set up that pulled this from the wall

imma guess dual 5970's or maybe quad 5870s? (the latter is more epic though)

Wow...I'm going to first say that I'm really glad I don't have to pay that power bill! Second, I'd think atleast running dual 5970's if not more...maybe even 295's?

I'm leaning toward dual 5970's, or he's trying to dominate the folding war with 3-4 gtx295's

Actually this had nothing to do with the folding war. :lol:

We were trying to get "two birds with one stone" type a night for reviews.

You guys are close. what about the rest of the parts in the system.... drives, water maybe, fans, blender.... :-k

I'm guessing:

EVGA X58 SLI Classified Intel X58 Chipset
Intel® Core™ i7-975 Extreme Edition 3.33 GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366

Maybe LN2 cooling and some serious OCing going on?

Oh, and don't forget the Oster Fusion Blender for some serious Margarita making action! Also some Stevie Ray Vaughn playing in the backround running off the rig you're working on. :supz:
