Crossfire 6950 on Maximus IV Gene Z - Page 2

It's NOT ... the PIC I posted is from our Gene-Z Owners thread, he'd have about the 1/4" gap between the cards, so it would be fine, we have many people running dual GPU's who aren't Water Cooling, he doesn't HAVE to switch to a different MoBo, as Bang for the Buck the Maximus IV Gene-Z68 really is one hell of a board. tongue.gif

Also ... according to Sapphire Tech on FaceBook at least, "88-90C temperature at high gaming efficiency is acceptable, and the threshold for the HD-6950 TOXIC card is 105-110C degrees." So I'd imagine most 6950's are in that range as well. So even running warmer than maybe you'd like, your cards should be just fine. wink.gif

Preposterous. Look at the images:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...page_III_GENE/
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...imus_IV_GENEZ/

Now look at the 6 DIMMs and the red triangle heatsink poking above the top card (right of the card in the image). It's the Rampage III Gene for sure.

EDIT: Misunderstanding. I meant the very first pic posted, not yours. Hence my saying "first" pic and 6950/6970s, not 570s. -_-

Hmm well i run my card @ 65 C at highest right no, and 90C sounds like it might melt the card xD, think if i have the top fan at about 70%, an bottom about 50% (what i have now) they will stay around 70C?
post #14 of 21
i run two 6870's on mine. yes..there close together, but i use custom fan profiles for gaming. i have no issues at 45% fan speed. best thing to look at is case case that will get the job done.

well i was thinking the 500R cause i can easily afford it and its get the big ol 200mm side fan intake


Also i was thinkin of holding off the second 6950 as my frame rates are fine in BF3 even at ultra i see no lag, so i could get the case mobo, cpu and ram then get the second card later at which point i might be able to afford wc

Slot spacing is standard, so it just depends on the cards. Whatever cards were in the picture I posted (5870? Can't remember.) have backplates, so they're darn tight.

Doesn't it kind of have to be?

The slot spacing must remain constant.

To be honest MAYBE for PCI-e Slot #1 and #2 ? ... but then again not EVERY mATX even have TWO PCI-e x16 slots ... and certainly NOT for ATX and eATX boards beyond the first two slots ... as that is one of the factors how some folks determine which board works best for them. So as a Hard Fast rule ... NO slot spacing is not Standardized YET at least.

AS EXAMPLE DOES THIS SLOT SPACING BETWEEN THESE BOARDS LOOK STANDARD / SAME TO YOU ?






I'd have to say certainly NOT as each board offers up different types, diferrent amounts, and different spacing & configuration of the various expansion slots.

I'm talking about slot spacing. Of course the arrangement isn't standard.
