1. Yes! That is from the PSU. See pic 1 below.

2. Are you using Asus 3-slot GTX570?

If you put the 2 cards in slots 1 and 3, I think they will work at x8 and x4. The User Manual does not specify SLI in these 2 slots but does say for 3-way SLI, the slots work at x8/x8/x4.
x4 speed will have noticeable performance loss.

If they are in slots 1 and 2, then they work in x8/x8. This is for sure as the Manual says so.

See pic 2 below.

BRILLIANT.

Kudos (+rep) to you kind sir!

I'm feel stupid, but I guess this forum was and is created for helping the stupid

Yes, after examining the motherboard manual, you are most correct, 8x/4x, definitely don't want that happening.

(Works in SLI, the two boards are practically sitting on one another, so I'll keep an eye on temps)

Thankyou so much.

Off to re-cable manage my case.
