SLI Queries.....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i posted this a while back.......

hey guys im currently using a Abit FP-IN9-SLI motherboard and the chipset for the SLI is the 650i, Im using an BFG 8800GTXOC Card at the moment but have heard that you cannot run 2x 8800GTXOC series cards in a 650i SLI board?

Just want to know if this is true? in the future i want to get into SLI mode but will the 650i chipset be unable to run 2 x 8800GTXOC at 8x ??
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

and a few people have said yes its fine that i can run it in 8x sli mode...

However i looked on the website where i bought my card from and il link it below.................

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=GX-035-BG

and at the bottom it says

"Note: This card is 275mm in length so make sure it fits in your case! Also the cards require PCI-E x16 slots, they will not function in a x8 slot so for SLi you need dual x16 mainboard. Finally 500W minimum for PSU and 600W+ is recommended."

and also on the box it says " You must have a PCI Express x16 slot on your mb for this card....."

So who is right lol, ive been told by guys that it would work fine in my post a while back yet im being told different lol

so can anyone finally clear up this issue for me ????

Thanks

You can without issue. Overclocked or not is irrelevant.

When you use one card its a 16x slot, when you use two its 8x8x although there is no real performance differences.

Yes. I recently built a system for a friend with the Asus P5N-E (650i board) with a pair of 8800gts in SLI that runs great. No issues at all. (Other than the fact that I had to get him aftermarket cooling on the nb and sb for the board)
