Choosing the Right 1155 Mobo - Page 2

post #11 of 24
I'm looking for a link for you Leethal but the consensus is you would only see a slight (couple %) difference between x8x8 vs x16x16 and thats only with top of the line cards that require serious bandwidth.

edit those 580s might take a bit of a hit better do more research

I think the UD7 is a bit high priced, however, I would rather have that board. Sure, there may not be that big of a difference between 16x/16x vs 8x/8x, but given the choice, I would rather run them at full 16x bandwidth each. Also, according to the very detailed preview/review here: http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...ew-review.html (credit to Sin0822) there are two separate PCI-E busses on the UD7. One is dedicated solely to the graphics cards, and the other runs the accessories on the board. Keeping them separate means they don't have fight each other for bandwidth.

Thread Starter 
I found this Quote:

"If you are running on a 30″ display at 2560×1600 or below, an x8/x8 SLI or CFX configuration will perform the same as a x16/x8 or x16/x16 configuration. The only time that you should even be slightly concerned about running at x8/x8 is when you move up to a multiple display setup. When we pushed the GTX 480 SLI at 5760×1200 we saw up to a 7% difference in performance between x8/x8 and x16/x16, in favor of x16/x16, but that was in one game only."

http://www.vizworld.com/2010/08/sli-...e-x16x16-x8x8/

Looks like no need for the Gigabyte, i'm sticking with x8/x8 on the Asus P67 Deluxe.

Looking at the specs on the gigabyte's and asus boards, I am not seeing SLI support, only crossfire. Twin 580's might initially be a problem.

EDIT - the asus p8p67 pro and sabertooth support sli and the gigabyte ud4 and above support SLI as well. My bad.

As for the Gigabyte boards, they're overpriced, imo. The ASUS boards seem to have more to offer overall and at a much lower price aside from the Maximus IV.

The Deluxe is only $218 and the PRO is $179.
I know what you mean, especially since he hasn't even won anything in a while. It's like first time you and your gf make love, BAM another dudes face tattooed on her butt BURN, kinda hope it might be customizable but i don't know.

Those are good prices, wish they would have went black pcb tho. Damn aesthics. Should be a good bang for the buck. Maybe the sabertooth will grow on me? that should prove to also be a good bang for the buck, I think it has less phase power tho(not 100% on this).

Not sure there really is a "best" without them even being out. It also depends on what you mean best bang for the buck? best performance? Some don't even have reviews out yet to even get a inclination.

Does it matter that there is no heat sink on the South Bridge on the Asus Pro?

I am racking my brain on the subtle differences between the deluxe/evo/pro...

for a noob overclocker, do they really matter?

In that case i think the p67 Deluxe is the one for me then get another GTX 580 and SLI it.

* I have a SSD already*
There is no native support for x16 x16 with Sandy Bridge, I believe the NF chip can make x16 x16 happen, but it has its own drawbacks.
