I've placed the order for two of these GTX Titan's that will be SLI'ed:

I'm quite excited and eagerly await their arrival.

Congrats! Just installed my second Titan today. You're going to love them. thumb.gif

Also took the plunge and just put in 2 x Gainward GTX 780 GLH editions a couple of days ago, they as are quick as titans and they do fly, very rarely much over 80% load to give me 144fps ( 144hz monitor ) at full details in most games.

I know this may be a simple question but is it preferred to plug the PCI-E 6/8 pin into the video before or after installing in the motherboard ?. I usually do it after the install but I've been reading in some cases it may deform it after it is installed.

If you'd done any research at all you wouldn't be asking this no brainer.poke.gif

Personally, I like to have the components assembled in the case before I do the wiring, particularly for the power cables. With this method, I can route the cables more efficiently, rather than having a jumbled mess that could possibly hinder the airflow. Electrically speaking, either way would work as long as the computer is turned on after all the wiring is connected. I can't recall anybody having trouble one way or the other.

Sorry I may not have been clear. The components and wiring is already assembled in the case however my question is does it matter whether I plug the PCI-E 6/8 pin before I insert the video card (to avoid deforming ?) or after it is already inserted into the PCI-E slot.

I usually do it when the PCI-E graphics card is already in the PCI-E slot but I was reading that attaching the power connectors before the video card is in the PCI-E may help to reduce deforming when attaching the PCI-E power connectors to the GPU.

If by 'deforming' you mean stressing the motherboard/PCI-E slots, then I just hook my fingers under the casing of the card when inserting the plugs, so I'm pushing against my hand instead of the mobo. Never considered attaching the plugs before installing the card - just sounds like more stuff to get in the way.
