Also, you need the links to connect the blocks to the bridge.

And, i'll stop butting in...lol.
So i need 2 links, or i need 3 in order to use the blank link?

get three, (3rd link for the 3rd card in the future) plus a blank to cover up the unused opening on the bridge until you get triple sli.

One thing did catch my eye Qu1ck...do you have 4 2GB memory modules or 2 4GB modules? I think you're running in dual channel...you should be using 6GB, 9GB or 12GB for triple channel.

(will help with performance iirc)

4 x 2gb sticks
i have seen benchmarks of duel channel vs tri channel and there is no difference, in some cases the duel channel was actually faster, but as intel improves there chipset in future cpu's tri channel should be better

i7 can run on dual channel just fine.

Yes, I would go w/ parallel
post #8197 of 105801
okey dokey.

you should be fine with serial or parallel as the 580's aren't the frying pans the 480's are...as wermad suggested, go parallel.

I know...I just thought triple would improve performance.
