ASUS p5w64? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
well for anyone who needs this information in the future i found the site that i was talking about where they said they had their cards in slots 1 and 4 and in SLI. it turns out that on the p5w64 you can run sli in 1 and 3 (8X, 4X) , in slots 2 and 4 (8X, 8X), or in slots 1 and 4 (8X, 8X). i just wish someone could explain how the sli bridge covers that much ground to go from slot 1 to slot 4.

here the link: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...=117948&page=3

are the hacked drivers that big of a nucsense (spelling) ? if you run the 7950gx2 you do not need the hacked drivers however. well you need hacked drivers for sli on any intell motherboard anyways so that shouldnt be a bad selling point for this board. finding that has made my decision because it overclocks very well for a 975 motherboard and its got 8X 8X pcie capability unlike the 965 motherboards..... and i can run my x-fi if i go sli ( unlike the abit aw9d max).

ah sweet!!!! where did you get the longer sli bridge?? wait... is the shorter one for use with cards that only take up one slot and are right next to each other and the longer for cards that take up two slots and are right next to each other? anyways, keep me updated on that board i really really want and this whole sli thing is my only dilema at the moment. hope everything goes well!
