You can raise them both back up a bit but raising them requires that you raise the QPI/DRAM quite a bit. It all depends on what you want to run your ram at.

some photos of the inner setup atm. suggestions on wire management would be much appreciated !! In particular the two 6 pins that go to the graphic card....



RAM clearance for someone who might be curious..

Hi...new guy here, and I need some advice. I am lookoing to put an Asus P6X58D-E in my new recording machine, but want to use a Sapphire 5870 Eyefinity video card and 2 PCI sound cards. I read somewhere that using one of these new generation, large video cards will block one of the 2 PCI slots. The guy at the computer store said the video card can be inserted in the bottom slot, therefore not blocking one of teh 2 slots I have to have available. Can anyone confirm or deny that before I go ahead and make the purchase?

Thanks
Bruce

I also changed the thermal paste on both cards, cleaned both off with 70% alcohol pads and replaced tim with shin etsu. I put maybe 2 grains of rice worth of tim, only part not covered with tim on the 460s are all the corners about 1/4th of a inch in from the middle.


Right now my cards idle at 42C and 36C. During gaming though the top card sparked up to 70C and the lower one was at 56C.
My ambient temp is 21C and my GPUs idle at 30C and 26C. During the Lost Planet 2 Benchmark they got up to 73C and 63C. These are overclocked to 860MHz and voltage is 1.06.

I'm sure California is hotter than where I am but maybe you have air con anyway?

Yes any GPU like that will block the next slot. You would need a single slot GPU if you wanted to use PCIe slot 1 for the GPU but not sure how many are out there. ATI do a single slot HD5770 GPU.



I don't know if a GPU will work on slot 3 with 1 and 2 PCIe slots empty. Maybe someone can test? I can only presume it does work as I don't see any provisions stated in the manual etc.

In the Bios you can choose between 16x8x8 or 16x16x1.

I have my P6X58D Premium with a D-zero(D0) i7920 because it was real cheap and good. I went pc10666 3 x 2gb Patriot 7-7-7-20 and it was good, so I put in the rest, another 3 x 2gb pc10666 Patriot memorybrand. I, then was running a XFX 9600GSO 768 MB PCI-E card and it stuttered, it is a DDR2 card, I do not "high definiton" so I put in another card and found the Nvidia drivers did SLI easy enough for me to do with my experience, and it does take some familiarity, we can thank all overclockers for inspiring curosity to potential commputer "geeks". So now I have 2 video cards XFX 9600 GSO(I think they are known to be very releyable,but my experience is don't O/C them, but my powers supplys have always been small, so mabey a bigger supply would make me really haul ass,oops, be stable). I have 12 gig of Ram , like I said, but I managed to get a picture of CPUZ when my system stressed, like clicking "E"(internet explorer) and I had just raised the Bclk to 200, I usually keep it at 166 as to conserve this wonderfull system.

Thank you very much, Routek!

So, I take that to mean that you expect the GPU will fit into the bottom slot, leaving the basic PCI slots above free for the sound cards. If anyone can test that it would be greatly appreciated, assuming that the BIOS can be adjusted so that the video card would work in that bottom slot.

Is there a reason to keep the GPU in the slot at the top? (is that slot 1?)

Thanks again
Bruce

Well the way that the PCI-E Lanes are setup I think that it has it for the top and middle slot are X16 and the bottom is X8 so you might be a little slow on the video side but you are using it for music editing correct? So a video card running at half its potential isn't a huge deal for you. I have never heard of running 2 Sound cards before. What is the benefit of it?

Hey Lawrence:

Thanks for the response.

One card is my Audigy SB, which is fairly basic but allows me to use the front panel which gives me Firewire, MIDI in and out, etc. The second PCI card is for my Delta 44 recording gear...it connects the break-out box with 4 ins and 4 outs.

The thing is, I also use the machine for gaming, so giving up 50% of my GPU's bandwidth is NOT an acceptable solution. I assume the slots cannot be reassigned through the BIOS? Probably a hard-wired issue?

Does the premium version run much cooler than the E version?
Is the premium version easier to overclock?
