Dang, i was really about to pull the trigger on an sli lightning setup. I guess if i want sli, i should get a blower style card for the second slot. Im not even sure i can use the last slot because its so close to my psu. Thanks for the heads up

Where are you at for the voltage set in AB? With the ln2 bios, +100 should have it at about 1.36V (at least it was with earlier drivers, haven't checked recently).

You do need a multimeter to see the true voltage, no software will read voltage accurately.

Can you be more specific than "an unstable game known for crashing without reason happens to be crashing"? Cause I mean... that doesn't really mean anything at all, other than Battlefield 3 is coded by brain-dead monkeys.

Yes, I had the z77 sabertooth. I had zero spacing issues in SLI. There was enough room for another card between both of my cards. I have pics in my profile if you want to see.

Well honestly its very hard to be more specific about the in game and benching crashes. But, if this help diagnose the issue for some reason my windows theme will randomly change to a less graphic intense one and an error message will appear (ill have to screenshot it next time). Also, the desktop will run a little jittery (including the screen saver).....very odd. But I changed my windows theme to the classic windows theme and when i open a window the window will appear to use the areo theme while the start bar will stay as the windows classic theme......I this is a very unclear description of my issue but i feel like it may be driver related. The regular every day uses like internet browsing appear to run smoother on the stock bios as opposed to the ln2. The LN2 bios seems to have a couple speed bumps without any overclocking. Any ideas?
