2xASUS GTX580 Matrix Platinum in SLI on a R3E, questions inside :)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, and sorry for my bad grammar and english, ill try my best.

Some questions before i start the assembly of the stuff at home.

My plans are to run a SLI configuration with ASUS GTX580 Matrix Platinum cards in a Corsair 800D case.

My specs are.

ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme motherboard
CPU and motherboard watercooled.
6x120mm + 1x140mm fan pushing air IN on the case.
1x140mm pushing air OUT of the case

Will I run into issues with heat regarding the gfxcards? Meaning with there be enough airflow or will they be burning hot

Any feedback is welcome!

Make sure you have your processor overclock to around 3.8ghz or higher to help lower the probability of your cpu bottlenecking your system
