    Ill take some pictures when I get home this afternoon.

    Its still a work in progress though, got to OC the proc to get the most out of the 1070. I can share my plans on that front though.

    I have to make sure I have the right programmer to get the job done, corrupting vBIOSes make me timid lol.

    A heads up. If you got the 1070 from euro com they are more than happy to send you the bios files. Any watts. That you want. U just need to show your receipt.

    Yes we have the same cards. The msi one. I bought mine from eurocom right before they went to the garbage ones.

    Couple of pictures uploaded, while its simple in practice with 3x 2150rpm Gentle Typhoons the results are quite nice.

    Installed the 4 pipe cooler just to have the CPU bump up a bit but realized all the power saving crap is still enabled in the BIOS, will have to take care of that another time. 12c differential is concerning though.

    Just discovered that G-SYNC works on the Ranger with my GTX 1070

    With it enabled and vysnc on, I cant perceive any tearing and/or input lag.

    This is with the stock 120hz 3d panel.
