Hey David,

The configuration was:

slot 1 - GPU GTX 285
slot 2 - GPU GT 120
slot 3 - atto 42ES
slot 4 - Avid Pro Tools HDX (audio DSP card)

I had a 6-pin Y cable that fed the GTX card connected to the 1st aux power port. Then I had another Avid supplied 6-pin to multi 4-pin cable for the Avid HDX card. The new Avid Pro Tools HDX cards also need aux power.

Then when I powered up the system it did not make the normal start up chime. I could hear a relay clicking in the machine some where, but it would never start up after that. Even with all of the boards removed. Nothing.

Machine is at apple store being resurrected via apple care. I have a feeling the problem was with the Y cable which I bought on amazon. I got greedy and wanted to run too many things in one box.

I may switch the resolve to PC anyhow as there are more GPU and MOBO options. After considering the cubix, I may be better off just spending a little more and building one of supermicro 4x GPU systems. The cubix seems to be too much money for what it does. @ around 3k you can actually find z800 systems on google, which is the price of the chassis.
