Asus 9800 GTX for SLI

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'am now busy with my overclocking machine. And i want a 9800 GTX in SLI mode, I will overclock those both. I use it for xtreme overclocking for getting more experience.

My question is..

I want 2 9800 GTX in SLI. I use a AMD motherboard (the new ones, 990FX). A friend of mine is selling his Phenom II 555 X2, but is this good enough ? I don't want to have any bottleneck you know... Wich AMD Cpu's (AM3) are good enough to handle 2 9800 GTX's ?

Okay, my screen is not that great.. Max Res is 1024 x 768 :$. He told me, that he unlocked his cpu succesfully to 3 cores. He also managed to unlocking the 4th core. Only the cpu was getting unstable when he did that.

He reached the 4GHz + with 3 cores. So I guess, when I will buy his CPU that there is no worries for getting a bottleneck ?

Good . I buy myself a new monitor, so my old 22 inch (Full HD) monitor is available then for my overclock machine. Still nothing to worry about I guess ?

Anyway I stuck right now, I need to wait when a Asus EN9800 GTX is available... Just got at this moment 1 9800 GTX.

Btw, got a AMD Sempron 450 right now running at 4 GHz. But this will be a bottleneck, right ?

Yes. I know what you mean . I have a core control option in my bios. I use the GA-MA790XT-UD4P motherboard. My AMD Sempron 450 have a defective 2nd core . So I was only enable to use 1 core.
