In benchmarks that I ran, I wasn't impressed with the scaling.

My 2500k seemed to be a bottleneck.

At least I got to experience first hand what Tri-Fire was all about. Just isn't for me right now.

ok.... thats not good... we have almost same board... guess I have to upgrade my mobo to Gigabyte UP7 or ASUS WS..... before buying another one for trifire....

Its worth a shot though

im pretty sure the 2500k only supports 16 pcie lanes unless im mistaken which means the cards wouldnt run in 8x 8x 4x it would run at 8x 4x 4x thats probably where the bottle neck is thinking.gif

Notice above the graph it says, "Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 138 Watts". Then, in the graph, it says "138W". So, in order for me to figure out the estimated power draw of 3 instead of just 1, I have to add 138W two times (or just add 276W). So, do you see that 300W total system power draw that they listed? I would add 276W to that. That gets 576W. Then I would have to add 125W for your CPU, making 701W. Then, I need to multiply 701W by .85 in order to assume that your PSU would be 85% efficient if it were to pull 701W from the wall outlet. That results in 595W. Then, I have to go even lower for your average gaming power draw, which would be about 550 to 575W.

I am unsure where you are getting the idea that the figures provided by Guru3D are based on the outlet power and not true hardware power consumption... If anything, you would need to divide 701W by .85 to obtain the outlet power (824.7W) based on the system power consumption.

When one does not have any clue nor first hand experience on the matter they go around posting gibberish from guru.


Many ppl have posted their real world power draws, but apparently misinformation works better when you're actually misinformed. Doh.

There is no way in hell I would attempt Tri-Fire on this board because scaling will inevitably be harmed, to a significant degree, by placing the last card in a slot that has less than half the theoretical bandwidth (way less than half the practical bandwidth) and considerably higher latency than the other two.

Best 24/7 OC I am comfortable with on my air cooled 7950s results in about 290-300w per card in the most demanding tests I can find (OCCT), with powertune's TDP throttling completely disabled.

If clocks are limited further, and voltage kept as low as is possible for stability, 1000w will be plenty for three 7950s plus an LGA 1155 board/CPU and other support components.

No offense, but on that board tri-fire was a fools endeavor from the get go.

You can't get an accurate idea of tri-fire when your third card is hanging off the PCH, sharing bandwidth with every single other device connected to the chipset, and has additional latency from being being forced to communicate through two layers of PCI-E controllers.

Honestly, I'm surprised the third card helped at all in your situation.


Took the words right out of my mouth.

LGA-1155 CPUs have 20 PCI-E lanes total.

Four of these are part of the DMI interface connecting the PCH to the CPU.

The board in question has two 8x slots (16x physical) connected directly to the CPU, with the last 16x physical (4x electrical) slot being connected to the PCH.

Here is the block diagram (all LGA-1155 and 1150 chipsets will look fairly similar to this):


In the end, there is little practical way to provide the bandwidth for three high-end cards, on LGA-1155 or 1150 without extra bridge chips. The problem is especially acute with older CPUs that do not support PCI-E 3.0 and doubly so for those that only allow a 3rd card to be connected via the PCH lanes (which share bandwidth and have increased latency).

8x/4x/4x all connected directly to the CPU would actually be better (though still not good) than the 8x/8x/4x setup the OP was using.

My board had some issues. Only one sata port worked. Instead of buying a sata card, I ordered another board.

ASUS Maximus IV 4 Extreme-Z for dirt cheap.

I'm not done with tri-fire..I'll be back (black friday)
