Yes, its really nice. But I dont know if x4 of the second PCI-E x16 slot will be a bandwith bottleneck or not.

It wont bottleneck on the 3850. The 3870 might push a bit closer to bottlenecking, but you should be ok.

I must admit, that is the main reason that I bought it ^^. It will look really good when I get a CNPS 9500 and I clean the wires, though.

Also, thanks to Veedupfreak for clearing that up.

It sure will bottleneck it. Performance from the x4 card will reduce by about 15%.,...but the fact that there are 2 cards will make up for that.

Are the 3850s loud? Cause im a noise freak.

Also, to any e6300 owners out there (gurusan?): how far did yours clock to? Because im trying to push mine farther.

if you crank the gpu fan up to 100% then its noticeable, and kind of annoying/loud. but i have mine set to 82% and its noticeable but not unbearable. but you can set it to like 25-50 and it'll be quiet as a mouse.
