Hello all. I have a question about the on-board graphics that this board has. Is it possible to enable and use the on-board graphics for physX while still using the 2 GTX 280's I have in SLI mode? Thanks in advance for the impute on this youall.

IDK if it's possible but the real question is how much would it help. The answer is even if you could enable it for PhysX you would be slowing your GPU spd down by using it for such. 82 or 8400 GPU is not very powerfull and on top of that you have to use your system ram for the onboard GPU so it would slow it down even more. Save the onboard for a time when you really need it like when your main expansion gpu's fail.

Thanks a bunch for the info. I kinda thought as much but wanted a 2nd opinion. There is no problem with what I have going right now, runs just fine. Thanks again for the info, N2Gaming.

I think the on board gpu is intended for giving older cards a boost and there is a compatibility list available somewhere, doubt 280's are supported.
I don't have any experience using it but will hopefully upgrade from xp to windows 7 very soon so i can get hybrid sli feature going. It'll save me some monies on the electric bill turning the two main gpu's off

Sounds like a mobo issue if you ask me. I mean both this and your Destroyer have the same chipsets so temperatures should be relatively the same... IDK why your temps are so off but it don't sound right to me.

If your using the same hard dirve w/the same loaded OS from your Destroyer then maybe I can understand it but if your on a fresh clean instal then I would have to argue that there may be something wrong w/your mobo.

i got some ocz blade 1066mhz 2x2gb off ebay, a steal at only £62 but i cant for the life of me get them to run at 1066 on this board. Ive messed about with it for ages n just cant seem to get the system stable. As soon as the ram is stressed it just freezes :s
