And if you want to use the Xfi Sound car you have to use another two slot 580 (like MSI for example)...is that correct?

No, actually, you can use two Direct CU-II cards in the two 8x8x PCI-E slots. Above the first pci-e slot is a PCI 1x slot where the sound card will fit fine.

Everything will fit, good design choices by Asus.

Have a look at the attache pic for my board.

Looking at Sohryu's looks like you just got it to tweak in there. If I move the card down to the second PCI-E slot it would fit in my case but it would be touching the PSU. If I had a 932 it would probably give me about another inch to work with.

Definitely, the case you are putting it in has alot to do with how your board will fit. The NZXT Vulcan is a very small mATX case designed as a portable LAN party solution. I got it because it is small, and very open as far as the side panel goes, which helps alot with my overclock and temperatures.

Your milage will vary with how it fits in there.

Ok, I understand. But, do you think that the cooling of the first Asus will be fine? I think I think that there is little separation between the two cards...

I think that would be relative, the temps on the top card will be higher but would depend on things like your airflow, how much you overclock, ambient temps, and maybe a few other factors. My guess would be as long as you have good airflow the temps will be good. Since the heat spreaders are out in the open a fan on the side of the case blowing over the card would probably help out your temps on the top card a good bit if you have problems.

in most SLI cards, if they are next to eachother the top card is going to have a higher temperature...
I've not seen anyone report these temperatures are too high, and I agree that since this card is not an enclosed heatsink, like alot of reference cards... the temperatures should be better than conventional cards... since the temperatures are better on these cards to begin with.

Well I just put my money where my mouth was when I was saying this Asus 570 was the only one to get hands down if you could fit a triple slot. I was considering just a 560 for a long time but I decided I wanted more than 1 GB of VRAM and didn't like the 2GB Palit 560 so this card was the natural choice. I'm gonna have to take a half inch out of my Antec 300 to fit it's length and I don't think I'll have much overclock headroom on my PSU but I should be very happy with this quiet 570. I wanted a triple slot because my mobo is perfect for it and this really is the best 570 out there and it cost the same as reference. I may post pictures up when it gets here next week of it and the hack job I'll have to do to my case. biggrin.gif

Just to reinforce my earlier statements that my temps were high because of my case...

Playing AC:B yesterday, my temps went up to 64C after ~45m, so I dropped the side panel off my case. After that, my temps never passed 59C. My CPU temp was unaffected lol.

Downloaded and played crysis2 in 1920x1080 with extreme graphics settings for about 5 hours straight, and there has not yet been a spot I found that caused my FPS to noticeably drop.

I'm getting frame drops in AC:B @ 1680x1050, but it's almost assuredly load lag, so that's on my hard drive.

The Crysis 2 demo heated my card up, but I never dropped below 60 fps.

I must have abnormally good airflow in my case, after playing for 5 hours yesterday the highest my cards temp reached was 53c. Ill have to take the side fans off and see how much of a difference it makes.
