MSI X58 Pro-E and GTX 470 SLI a bit tight?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ive just ordered another GTX 470 to go with my other one but it looks a bit cosy where the second one would sit? will this be a problem with cooling etc?
Thanks!

It looks like your board has 3 X16 slots (with one of them being X1) - I'd imagine that the X1 is which ever one you select via bios? [you'll need to check your motherboard manual] If so, you could use the 1st and 3rd one to give proper spacing, otherwise they will be sandwiched. In the event that they are together, the top one will get warmer (5c or so) not really a big deal, just make sure you have decent airflow in your case
