SLII: Palit 560 ti Sonic with ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just stumbled across a cheap ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5 and having been wanting to run SLI with my Palit 560 ti Sonic, but with prices of such cards having gone up a lot lately here in Denmark (price have risen 60+ USD), the ASUS card seems a perfect match, at the same price that I bought the Palit, its core clock is 900 MHz as the Palit and the memory clock is 4200 MHz also as the Palit.

Here are links so that you can compare specifications:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814261101&Tpk=palit%20560% 20ti%20sonic
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121425&Tpk=ENGTX560%20T i%20DCII%20TOP%2f2DI%2f1GD5
Does any have any objections to pairing these two cards???

Thanks a bunch in advance,
AtheistDane

Should be fine tbh, the main differences are the non-reference coolers' design, which will only be impacting temperatures and noise.

Performance wise, they're still using the same GTX 560 ti fermi chip underneath their coolers, so there shouldn't be any problems. You'll be alright.

Nice. Just bought it.

Just have a few questions as I've never run SLI before, when I install the second card, will I then have to reinstall the graphics driver to have it recognize the second card or will it detect it automaticly?

Also does running SLI require any extra power supply connectors/cables apart from the two 6-pin ones on each card. (Have a newly bought Cosair TX850V2 PSU, so power should not be a problem.)

Would you recommend installing more case fans to get better airflow now that two GPUs will be pumping out hot air into the case?

Install the card, bridge, then make sure SLI is enabled in the drivers.

Depends, you need to eliminate hot spots and also get air away from the cards as fast as possible without recycling hot air.
