post #31 of 37
Thread Starter

right now i have this slot placement

slot2-x1-empty
slot3-8x-(gtx660)
slot4-empty
slot5-4x-soundcard
slot-6-8x (gtx560)

Great thing to know that you have solved your issue. Congrats and enjoy your rig !

That's an X58 board... the X5x series boards are notorious for sliding their channels around. I'd ditch the 560 cold out of the system, its taking up a LOT of driver resources for very little return. Its more blocking the power supply's air than anything else. Look into hard-setting the epci channels in the bios and the next time you want to set up SLI, don't bother with a board that can't do 16/16 - smaller tires don't make the car actually go faster.

The psu air supply comes from the bottom, where holes In the case feed cooler air, when I built this rig that board was the better bang for the little amount of money I had...

In any case the sli works well with this board , I have one of the best scores for sli set ups in futuremark test's . My issue came down to needing a reseat, the lanes were fine... Still going strong haha. Thanks for the reply though.
