If you can't find any locally or on eBay, PCCG might ship to you.

This is for the Shin Etsu.

Shipping would probably cost more than the item itself noting that I only need a small quantity to cover my needs.

^ that type of thermal pad will not work. Needs to be 0.5mm thick.

many different types. If your doing the back plate thing, then you need one that is at least 95mm long and 16mm wide.

Yeah, I thought of that as well. But I'm also thinking about layers of them to form an acceptable thickness. I don't know if layering them would affect the temp conductivity though. Currently using PK-1 on my VRMs and a custom made HSF soldered into a copper bar. But I think a backplate will really help in my situation. Since my board tend to shut down at high clocks randomly without errors. Might be some of the VRM doesnt have enough contact with the Heatsink.

I also got some aluminum bars laying around and a dremel to make the backplate.

I had the same problem before I made my back plate. The Middle vrms were not making contact with the heatsink and they would cause the board to go into thermal shut down. It only happpened at the higher clocks, but simple fix.

You don't really need to use a thermal pad, You can use the 3m double sided foam tape as well ( at least i'm pretty sure it would hold up to the heat )

The backplate isn't really used for cooling, its there to prevent the board from warping so all your VRM's can make contact witth a Heatsink/water block. The reason you need the thermal pad on the backside is to isolate the plate from the board. Might as well use a thermal pad to transfer heat to the plate for a bit of passive cooling as well. You can use what ever you can think of there as long as it can tolerate the heat, and isolates the back plate from the motherboard ( you wouldn't want to short your board out)

So I searched over and over and couldn't find anything on this. I installed this mobo bc the old asus m5a99fx pro couldn't handle the amd 9 series well. I have 2 gigabyte 760 ' I was really excited about sli. Hooked them up and plugged them in and voila.....nadda. In the geocentric control panel they are both recognized, but even with the sli sleeve on, there is no option to sli?

-removed one card reinstalled drivers
-added back card 2, reinstalled drivers.
-obviously reinstalled windows before
-spazzed out
-gave up

Help please! Oh this is on a fx9370, gigabyte ga990fxaud5 rev.3, 2 sticks patriot 4GB 1600 ram, 1tb drive, corsair hx850 psu.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS. Also maybe SLI only works on certain PCIEX slots? I believe for the UD3 (total of 4 PCIEX slots) SLI only worked on PCIEX4_1 & PCIEX4_2 slots. PCIEX16_1 & PCIEX16_2 were only for crossfire I think? Maybe it's the same for the UD5?

So I updated bios and nothing at all. I put the cards in different spots and nothing. When i pull up nvidia control panel it pops open with no SLI option at all, although it recognizes both cards.I changed the PCI-e settings to Legacy, and nada. I have the 2 cards in the slots marked for PCIE_16 1 and 2. Updated windows, new driver, nothing....i'm not into that UltraSLI or whatever that alters bios to recognize it. Is it possible that the bridge is broken?

have you updated the driver with both card installed?

If you have, use driver cleaner and clear out the nvidia components in safe mode and try again.

So literally remove the 2 cards?

I've installed the drivers with both cards in, several times in fact. I'll try this as soon as i get home!

Got the same issue...

But I haven't tried installing without the bridge, or plugging each card one after the other...

Might as well try..
