MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 254

Hey all,

Just a quick question to those running SLI on thier MPower. Is it possible to fit an Asus Essence STX sound card in the top PCI x1 slot.

I have just bought my MPower and couple of 660 ti's to SLI with and I'm wanting to know if I can fit a sound card in as well?

Any help would be great

Edit - just saw a photo in the thread with someone using it in the top slot - looks like it will work! Sorry for not reading through!

I have 2x 670 gtx and the Asus Essence STX fits perfectly with no clearance issues.

Both of you guys could start here

This setup is pretty much like the use of offset on another board allowing some overclocking with power saving features. If you really wanna push your chips you'll need to use a static vcore though.

Awesome that solves my problem - out of interest is there any clearance space between the two? I am wanting to put a back plate on my 660.

I put Intel C-states enabled, and now LEDs flashing and shows me the number of active phases, comand center report that is disabled but I guess something is wrong somewhere.

Here are some photos:





Now consumption decreased by another 5-7W at idle and load!

I owe you one!! Thank you very much!!

Sorry for the delay but I had problems with the internet!
