LGA 2011 board compatible with 6990 crossfire?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Friend of mine made a build with an eVGA x79 and two 6990's, but eVGA says it's not compatible. He wants to stick with 2011, since he already has the processor for it, but is unsure about what other boards might have trouble with the configuration. Any ideas for a good 2011 board compatible with crossfired 6990's?

Well, they said every 7XXX crossfire they could try worked just fine, but that they didn't have two 6990's to test with.

Crossfire might work but he want to Quadfire, even if it's two card it may not support it. What is the model of the board?

ATI video cards will work in any dual PCI-E physical x16 slots. The only reason NVIDIA couldn't run multi-card setups on many X58 and earlier chipsets was because NVIDIA charged a license fee. it was only the NVIDIA drivers that disabled SLI. If the manufacturer didn't pay for the license, the boards did not get included in the list of products coded into the drivers.

I can't imagine why there is an issue with the eVGA board, other than there being a fault in the board's design. But technically, any 2011 board should be capable of running quad fire, even with dual GPU cards.


Linus is actually using a Gigabyte Sniper X58 board to run quadfire 6990s:


That all being said, I would ditch the eVGA board. it has not faired well at all! The Rampage IV Extreme should be a great candidate for your friend.
