Power MOBO needed!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I currently have the Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard. It is a nice board, especially that it supports i7 and up to 24GB RAM plus has two PCI Express slots that are dual at 16x/16x modes.

The only DAMN problem is that these slots are so damn close that when I plugged my SC GTX 570's in, they sit right next to each other which results in very high temperatures.

With Fan maxed out the GPU1 runs at 98C with a 96% Load.

The case is not an issue, it is a nicely flowing case with plenty of space.

So, what I need is a motherboard that will support i7 proc, DDR3 RAM, have one PCI express slot for X-Fi and two PCI Express slots for SLI that are spaced out from each other and both run at 16x/16x mode.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Here would be a perfect motherboard IF the damn PCI Express x1 slot for the sound card wasn't so damn close to the Video Card slot. I am pretty sure when I plug the 570 in, this small port will get covered up and there won't be enough space to fit the X-Fi sound card.
