Asus p8z68-V Pro SLI/Audio Card Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Overclockers!

I was wondering if anyone had a P8Z68-V Pro and managed to SLI while running an audio card. I have a Xonar DX PCI Express edition. I was thinking of SLIng my GTX 570s due to the recent price drops I been seeing. I'm a bit worried though as I don't want to give up my Xonar DX (very beautiful quality especially since I record livestream etc). If I can't SLI it, I'm planning on just going for a GTX 680 but I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible. I hate the idea of selling online, shipping charges, services fees etc etc. My GTX 570 is also having issues with a lose HDMI port so close to $250 back is very unlikely.

Yeap with 580s and Xonar DG. DG is not DX but retty sure you'll have no problems as there should be plenty of space (you can even more your card now to the 2nd slot and see if you can keep the DX there).

I got a question similar to this so i thought i'd write it here.
I have two 580 msi lightnings and an asus Dg sound card but I cant seem to fit them onto the (p8z68 v pro) board. AM I doing something wrong or is it because these cards are so large?
Sorry for such a dumb question but why make the board so if one of the connectors isnt reachable if sli?
