that's the entire issues. I was working off of a visual burned in my brain from my ASUS mobo. I mistakenly put one card in X16_1 and X4_1. I now have them properly seated in X16_! & X16_2. Got the CPU stable and beautiful at 4.997GHz can't push it any further lol depressing, but oh well. I don't know enough about OC to go more than BUS (204) Multi (24.5) and NB (2400).
The cards are practically touching eachother, but i added a fan to help move air over the cards and it seems to keep temps nice and low around 62c max while playing bf4 on ultra while getting 60-80fps depending on map etc.
