Can you run 4-Way SLI with any cards on the x58 motherboard? Or do they have to be GTX 285's from EVGA?

For reals? That's ludicrous. If anything each card should need less power in a quad-sli config, not more. The standard power config for the 285 should have been totally adequate, it makes zero sense that it would not have been.

Anyways ... tri-SLI 285's is already overkill for anything out there ...

And with those 285's it can only be done on the special 4-way SLI mobo. The extra power must be to power the chip that fools the drivers into thinking its 295's.
