I forgot to install the fans onto the Z77 Sabertooth before installing this motheboard to the case, does that I have to uninstall the motherboard in order to install the fans? Are the fans really worth the effort?

both fans can be installed after the mb is in the case.
As to if they are really worth it? I'm not sure.

Hi,
The fans must do something, without them there is non moving air under the armour.
Note that the mobo fan behind the pcie 1x slot makes the 1x slot impossible to use, i tried putting a titanium hd soundcard there and it would'nt fit into the 1x slot due to how high the little fan is, as i sli i had to get a 1x extension cable and adapter wink.gif, could'nt take the fan off without taking the nh-d14 off.

Ended up using teh 4x slot smile.gif

I'd install the fans only to keep the air underneath the thermal armor with air moving even if user defined to lower speeds at least it's something vs nothing. I can see having hot air trapped in between may raise temps.

I've got a question regarding the PCIe Express x16_3 (black) bandwidth setting in UEFI.

I can run it in x1 mode or x4 mode. It's default to x1.

At x4 mode the PCIe x16_3 the PCIe_3 slot runs x4 mode for high performance support. PCIe_1, PCIe_2, PCIe_3 are disabled.

At x1 mode the PCIe)_3 run at x1 mode with all slots enabled.

If I've only got the one dual GPU card which setting is best for me to run it at?

I'd think you's want to leave it at 1x unless you have 4x pcie card allready.
Here's just one card that can use 4x, there's many more uses for it like raid ect.

If your using the 4x slot with a 1x card i'd leave it at 1x as there would be no benifit wink.gif

Without the spacer I've hit temps as high as 90...the game shut itself down at that point. with the spacer and the fan running at 50% I get normal gaming temps. And no, the spacer isn't an aesthetic problem, I have it tucked way back so no one can see it.
But with my understanding of the EVGA reference card cooling the way the air runs is out the card through the front slots..so, it might not be that huge of a problem as I'm having where the air blows directly onto the bottom card, and because they were so close together, the air had no where to go.
Either way, I love this board, the proximity of the cards is a minor issue cause it can be handled with a fans or brackets to level out the cards ( fix the droop), and in my case a spacer
wow just checked on your card..589 euros!!!!!! WOW! Check the cooling solution on that card, looks like its like mine, air blows down. Not sure thoght so research it.....580 EUROS!!!!!!!

Hey Blatsz32, thanks for the response. I was under the impression it dumped most of the exhaust out the back. Looking at a few different reviews it seems to dump out the side as well, so as you say that is an issue. You're right the reference design would suit me better for SLI as it dumps exhaust directly out the back. My case is a FT02, so again the GPU backplates are facing up-so all the better.

I require 4GB cards as I'm running 5760 x 1080, next thing is to find a decent reference design that's not stupid money like the evga FTW. I was hoping to get them for less than list as I'm going self employed soon I can claim Vat back. thumb.gif

Glad to hear your spacer fix works, but 90 deg C is nuts eek.gif Would you consider putting the 570's under water?
