Added myself biggrin.gif

Unfortunately I have to keep my VCore low as my case has very low clearance and I need to stick to stock until I can find a better, low clearance cooler. Still, <60C load at 4.0 GHz is not bad, IMO.
post #5252 of 7108
Can anyone post some clear pictures of sli/cf setups. After looking at the board more and more I decided to put my 9800gtx in there to see what kind of clearance I'm looking at. Well the card does fit but it is so close to the top card that it rubs against the fans. I have the MSI 560 ti 448 TFIII card on top with another one on the way in the mail. If my 9800gtx didn't fit I cannot see the MSI card fitting. I really do not see how this board was made for 2 cards, well unless there reference cards. This is really a bummer now because the board is less than 2 months old. I think I am going to buy another one and sell this one.
Anyways maybe some pictures so I can see how this works.
Thanks

Terry

Other than 3 slot cards I dont think you will have a problem? You might have issues accessing sata ports and what not but thats about it. the spacing is decent between the 2 pciex16/8 slots

They are way to close to each other. The fans for some reason stick above past the top shroud about 1-2mm or so. So the second card's pcb is hitting the fans shrouds. The only way I can see doing this is using some kind of spacer between the cards. I don't know about that.
Hopefully someone can post some pics

So there's several differt Brands nVidia and AMD that show SLI / CrossFireX rigs w/ our Little Gene-Z68 MoBo ... yours SHOULD work too ? unless your card is WIDER than a normal 2 Slot ?

Cant say on the genesis but I seriously doubt the backplate would prohibit being able to use a D14. You just have to tape the fan clips (might not even have to do that as the backplate probably serves as some protection but meh I would for safety.

Ok, so I am still having trouble coming out of S3 sleep (standby) on my GENE-Z.

I've lowered my overclock to 4.6 GHz and changed the PLL Overvoltage setting to "Auto" instead of "Enabled." I am assuming the "Auto" setting defaults to disabled?

At these new settings, my system will still pass Prime 95 and Memtest86+ for many hours each, but I still have problems coming out of S3 sleep sometimes. Once every few tries, the system will hang and I will not get any signal to the display. Then the system will reboot and hang again until I do a hard reset.

Can anyone help? Is there something wrong with my board?
