Sabertooth X79 quick easy question =D

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all

Got my new Sabertooth board and ran into a potential problem, i have an Antec 1200 and a H100 cooler
I somehow managed to pull off push pull on the back two120mil fans but the radiator blocks my first pci-e slot.

Sooo my question is, will i suffer any performance hits by jamming both of my GTX460s in the bottom two slots?

Thanks a bunch for any input guys!

Not too much of a difference between 16x 16x and 16x 8x is there?

Real world your really not going to notice it. Slam it in there and make sure the chipset will recognize those 2 slots in dual SLI. That could be your only problem.
