CPU and GPU compatibility

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have bought the asus gtx 570 direct cu ii for my gpu and the asus p8z68-v for my motherboard.

Because this card is a triple slot, can I sli in the future with x8 and x8? I haven't got the parts so I can't test it out frown.gif and will it have enough room?

or should I go buy the msi twin frozr 3 and a new mobo because some people have been saying that the p8z68-v has problems with the 570 :S

Does anyone have experience with these products together?

so should I buy another motherboard or gpu or both?

Thanks

You won't be able to SLI as the third slot will semi-cover your second PCI-E lane biggrin.gif. But even if you could put it in, I highly recommend the GTX 570 Twin Frozr III version. I own its smaller brother, GTX560 Ti HAWK biggrin.gif

You might wanna try another mobo first.

Yes, you can put the second card in the white slot and running at x8/x8 for both cards. You might need to put a side fan blowing directly to the cards. Also have to consider that both cards will dump the heat inside the case, you have to use a bigger case with good airflow.

Suggest just get 2 slotter card for the second card to SLI.

Which mobo would you recommend?

and so should I return the 570 asus for a msi twin frozr 3?

Yes you should get the Twin Frozr III, about the mobo, if you get the MSI one then the mobo's fine!

The DCUII cools incredibly well, however, Twin frozr 3 is by no means a bad cooler. It cools impressively well though iirc, it is a bit louder than the DCUII.
Personally, I'd want some more room for cooling my cards (if you SLI with 2 DCUII's on this board, your cards will probably cook themselves) so I would rather SLI two Twin frozr 3's.

I have the same motherboard and Asus GTX 570 as you. My solution was to pick up a dual slot reference design 570 to SLI with. I put the Asus in the bottom PCI-E slot and a Zotac reference in the top slot.

The setup works incredibly well. Both cards have room to breath and stay very cool.thumb.gif
