MicroATX with SLI

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Alright www.monarchcomputer.com is selling their Hornet systems in MicroATX format with SLI... Where are they getting these boards?

I've looked all over google, and if you check Monarch's site they obviously don't list the company making the board... But they are buying them from a 3rd party provider since Monarch doesn't make their own...

So anyone know who makes these MicroATX boards with SLI capability? I'd love to throw one in my new system with a Opteron 165 dual core... That would make for a really nice gaming rig.

Thanks,
Gate to Oblivion

Your on your own. I've checked it all...froogle, pricewatch, google, cnet, Multiple known manufacturers, refining search after search. All false positives. Which is actually really annoying...so I'm stopping. If you plan to continue, make sure to search for uATX boards as well as mATX.

Went to that site and checked the pics, but that board isn't SLI.

Can you give me a link to exactly what your talking about within Monarch? I looked at all their Hornet systems and didn't notice a single system with SLI capabilities...

Scroll all the way down to configure the system.... Comes in at $1369.62 including 2 x 6800XT's and upwards from there.

It's SLI alright, on a MicroATX board.

I did some looking, and I couldnt find any mATX boards with SLI. However, Shuttle makes a system with SLI support if you want to check that out.

There are two people running 7800GT's in SLI w/ the 350w PS and they claim to have no problems... Looking the case layout it LOOKS like you could fit a new PS in there... maybe a modular X-Connect if you're lucky.

In either case it's a neat setup that I'd certainly be interested in... Mostly interested in the fact that one reviewer claims MicroATX SLi boards will be available to the public w/in the next 3 months.... Hmmmmmmmm....
