Quote:Both are usually needed for extreme overclocking with dry ice and stuff
I have been searching this thread but I can't find anyone here having issues with the Extreme11 motherboard and 4-Way Crossfire or SLI when it comes to the space needed for big cards. I was kind of hoping someone could tell me if there were any issues when using 4 large high end graphic cards on this board.
Currently I am having doubts about installing my other 3 HD5870 cards next to the current one : I think this will stop the chipset fan from spinning and since I somehow just can't lock the cards with the PCIe locks at the end of the slots there is probably a huge chance of the cards popping out during operation
My previous motherboard was the eVGA X58 4-Way SLI and I had no problems installing the cards on that board although it was a tight/snug fit.
Unfortunately the eVGA killed itself a week ago so I had to replace it with something similar...
The features of the Extreme11 are awesome but this is really bugging me right now Any help/advice would be really awesome
