I have read that a lot of people were unable to get the Hivemind interface working after a fresh install of Windows. I havent tried that myself, I swapped in an SSD but cloned the drive rather than a fresh install, and have upgraded to Windows 10 and Hivemind still works.

I was reading around on compatibility with Windows 10 and Hivemind and thats when I saw numerous people on other forums saying Hivemind didnt work after a fresh install.

This is a pci-e x4 socket
So you need to make sure your graphics card fits
Most should fit and run with x4 lanes
Also need to make sure it physically fits without getting in the way for heat sink
You also need an extension for m.2 like this

Really cheap one

Not sure what the difference is


I have not tried any of this
But would not hesitate to once I get my alpha



That 4x slot you linked to, doesnt look like its open ended so I dont see how graphics cards made for x16 would fit.

You are correct
I saw some other ones that have open ended slots. Will try to post a link

Otherwise careful Dremel cut can open it up

I wonder how well made these are but they are certainly cheap

Another more expensive solution

Just a joke. It was meant that the 980Ti, unless you're going for higher than 1440p, might be overkill. I ended up giving my son one of my GTX 970 and was going to upgrade to a 980ti, but I think I'm going to just hold off and see what else is coming. I already get decent frames at 1080p for pretty much every game (with all candy on). I can even run a good portion of the games with a few things turned down on 3 x 1080p monitors decently well. So, waiting for 4K to become a better reality I guess.

Ok
What card will run all Games at 1080 and all settings flat out? A 970?

I'd say you're looking at the GTX 970 or the R9 390. They both seem pretty evenly paired with the nod to performance going to the R9 in general.
