OverKILL3D ASUS Matrix Platinum GTX980 4 Way SLI Review
This winter has been a long and dark one. With spring just around the corner we need to blow away the cobwebs of endless rain and freezing temperatures, and what better what to shake things up that to turn the site over for a day to the lunacy that we call OverKill3D. Yes it's time once again to wipe the foam from our mouths and unbuckle the straitjacket from the dark corner of the website.
Regular readers will know what to expect, but for those of you who are new to these hallowed halls, welcome. OverKill3D is when we step away from the regular review style to just build a system that is the kind we'd all have if we won the lottery and see what is possible from current hardware. Partly because it's fun, partly so that you don't spend your life wondering exactly what would be available if money was no object, and partly because having so much hardware to play with gives us the horn.
Today's moment of madness comes courtesy of ASUS and their Matrix Platinum GTX980. Or, perhaps more specifically, four of their Matrix Platinum GTX980s. Yessir, it's time to go Quad-SLI with the finest graphics card currently available and, just for good measure, we'll be running largely at 4K. Because why wouldn't you?

One of our mantra's has always been how cool two cards look in comparison to one. We know that with a GTX980 you'll only ever need two, but if two cards look good then four cards looks amazing. Colour us excited.
So strap yourselves in and get ready to wonder how many vital organs you can live without.
