Thanks to OCAU/i4memory forum member Frenchlick, I'm now a proud owner of 3x Sapphire HD5870 video graphics cards for tri-crossfire fun!

Sapphire HD5870s were shipped via TNT as is with sapphire boxes themselves! Luckily, physical inspection looks fine and despite a few missing accesories, the price was a bargain at AUD$1,500 for tri-cf fun. Thanks Darren/Frenchlick

Took some photos of 2x HD5870 CF setup on Asus P6T6 WS Revolution (supports 3x PCI-E x16 slots for PCI-E #1, #3 and #5 slots). I grabbed my DFI UT X58-T3EH8's longer flexible Crossfire connector bridges as DFI UT X58-T3EH8 has double slot spacing for CF. Wasn't sure if I need both bridges for 2x HD5870 CF as there wasn't any difference in scores really for 1x vs 2x bridges I don't think. Last photo compares the longer crossfire connector bridge with the standard one.

Now to see how 3x HD5870 Tri-Crossfire does - my first time using triple GPUs on any kind (ATI or Nvidia). Tight fit there with the HD5870s slotted into PCI-E x16 #1 + #3 + #5 slots.

Testing begins tonight
