Kingpin testing a Sandy Bridge E dream system

Written by Slobodan Simic

EVGA X79 Classified and four GTX 580 Classified


In case you were wondering what the Sandy Bridge E dream system looks like, you might want to head over to Kingpin's Kingpincooling.com forum and check out the EVGA X79 Classified running Intel's Core i7-3960X CPU, four EVGA Geforce GTX 580 Classified cards and 16GB of Corsair Dominator GT memory.

It might sounds like overkill, but the system is quite impressive and can score up to X9609 in 3DMark 11 and up to 5505.274 in Unigine's Heaven benchmark. Of course, since we are talking about Kingpin here, it was no wonder to see both the CPU and all those cards hooked up to LN2 pots.

Kingpin promises that this is just a start and the latest that we saw was an overclock to 5271.4MHz for the Core i7-3960X. You can check out the rest of the pictures and more to come over at Kingpin's forum here.
