Maingear Ephex 3-Way SLI Gaming System

We’ve just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the design, build quality and performance of Maingear's Ephex high performance gaming system configured with 3-Way SLI technology from NVIDIA.  We were introduced to Maingear in the process of NVIDIA's 3-Way SLI launch, when NVIDIA had the company configure us a system to test and evaluate 3-Way SLI technology in general.  Obviously, NVIDIA felt Maingear's Ephex system build was high quality enough to send out to the press on behalf of their new 3-Way SLI technology.  So the question is, beyond 3-Way SLI, does Maingear's Ephex live up to customer expectations of a super high-end gaming system as whole?  That’s what we wanted to find out…

That beastly rig is mighty impressive! If I had unlimited resources I'd buy 1 without thinking twice. It's kind of funny to me though that a monster like that can barely break 30 frames on Crysis set to very high @ 1680. In all honesty I think that says more about the game than the rig though and every aspect of that truly awesome gaming machine is drool material. With that being said, I can't wait till hardware that will be able to break 100 frames @ those settings becomes available!!!

 Hi All,

Truly a very impressive system. Like Recovering I to would buy it no questions asked if I had it like the Fed.

On another note though, Crytek, seems to develop Games that bring systems to their knees. If memory serves, when Farcry first came out it too was a system killer as well.

Crossfire > SLI! ...lol. Regardless of my ranting, that is a beastly system. Man, it really sucks looking at all this beautiful hardware, than realizing I can't afford it and turning back to look on my 3.2 prescott rig...lol. But atleast being in a bad financial situation has made me stronger as a person and taugh me how bad wastefully spending money is =P.
