I forgot all about that, think I'll plug it in and see if I can get my cards past 1228 on the core.

*Especially newer mid->high end GPU's and older GPU's with no PCI-E input...  

 

 Most GPU type pull PLLv from the mobo's PCI-E slot, 12v supply.. some cards can draw quite a bit of wattage through the connection -> which pulls directly from one of the +12v connections on the 24pin mobo header.

So I have been reading up and checking out things this mobo can do, all I can say is wow.

The latest is the app that lets you monitor your system, freaking sweet! its got the little digi display on the mobo with numbers that range anywhere from 35 to 49 I assume this is the cpu temp? If so its always off from the monitoring app on my phone.. Anyone else have this prob?

Is there any way around being able to use 32GB of memory in Windows 7 Home? I spent 240 bucks on 32 gigs of ram and I cant use it unless I upgrade to PRO!!!! Thats another 90 dollars!!!

So has anybody setup a dedicated soundcard, such as the soundblaster 7x into this motherboard with an SLI config without any headaches?

I used to run dual gtx 580 with my xonar DX sound card on the top pcie 1x and didn't have any problems but with sli remember that nothing can be in the third pcie 16 x slot other wise sli will not work.

So basicly if using sound card put it in an pcie 1x slot

You can look at my rig in the sig, I'm currently running GTX 680's SLI with a Soundblaster Fati1ity. Its currently in the top slot PCIE 1X as others have said as well (I also put pictures up) I have ran the set-up ever since i got the 2nd GTX 680 and have not encountered any issues what so ever. Is there a problem that you're running into? Maybe we can help?

Those pics from your build are very encouraging. I have heard reports of some people having to remove the hard shells from off their sound cards to get them to fit. I am hoping the soundblaster 7x is small enough for it as well.
