Make sure you post pics when you get it. This thread could use "unboxing" pics.

Yes it is, but I have it disabled. AFAIK, it just keeps ram at 2:8, which I already have set. If it does anything more then that let me know, I may try it out.

You can always just use a 9800gt for a phys card. Your phys card doesn't have to be the same as your sli'd cards. Even though the 4th card would be kinda hanging off the board, you could still use a double in the last slot so long as your case has enough slots to accomodate it. (granted, I can see if you're using a lot of the plugs there at the end it could be quite fussy).

That said, I ran 3x 4890's in mine for a while (wifey stole 1), didn't really have any issues w/ it.
Well it's not that, the last 2 PCie slots are right on top of each other. So lets say you did run tri-SLI, the 3rd card would cover up the 4th PCIe slot. So I don't see how you could run 3x SLI + PhysX.

the layout of the tri sli and onboard features are better tho. (and well worth 30 bucks)

you get the dual onboard lan, esata, 2 more usb ports of the get go, and so on
Yeah, I saw the price difference was relatively negligible and noticed the the 3xSLI is laid out better. Has 2 PCI slots, so I can use my XFi I love that thing.

As for my GPUs', I'm probably not going to upgrade for a while. Within the last 6 months, I will have built 2 new rigs; if I spend any more cash on hardware I think my wife is going to me.

Didn't even think of that, but yeah, I see exactly what you're talking about now. Forgot what the name of them is, but there's 'extender' things that you could use. Or wc+cut rear plate. But yeah, it'd be a p.i.t.a.

alright guys, i just thought i share this with the ppl that own the board...

just went ahead and followed karma's advice, added an antec spotcool in my case pointed right at the nb.

heres the result, before and after, folding @ 100% load on 7 cores, no ambient changes nothing has changed.

temps before:


temps after:


for $16 dollars at bestbuy, this is a suitable temporary solution, i will be switching tim's on it once i get my wc setup for the cpu loop in, ill report back with temp changes.

Hey hitman, i hope this link will help you acheive the clock speed you want. I too had difficulty overclocking my spare computer that has an EVGA e758 coming from just knowing the bloodrage bios i though it will be the same due to evga using award bios. Anyways looking in the evga forum and using the shansmi guide i was able to acheive 4.2 stable. It took a whole day to get it to 4.2 and another whole day of checking its stability but was happy with the results and learning experience.

yeah, the classy is a kickbutt board.

but i honestly like my purchase of the sli le a lot. the bloodrage needed a bit more voltage for my cpu to reach 4ghz last time, if it was the chip or board i dont wanna predict, but i dislike the limited capabilities of the BR a bit

Interesting I had the opposite experience, when i transferred my old C0 to the e758. Anyways i sold my C0 last week and picked up a D0 at microcenter, running 200x21 at 1.35v around 65-70C. I would love to go water but have no knowledge on how to set up loop. By the way using the link guide i provided i notice it was easy to get to 4.0 but when trying to get to 4.2 thats when it started to get tricky either i was upping core voltage or vtt or dimm voltage and sometimes all three.
