ketzer7Was really excited when I first saw this board a few moments ago - seemed to address all of the PCIe layout and M.2 slot issues the full Classified had. That was until I realized that the SLI slots on this board are the first two x16s, i.e. PE1 and PE2, instead of PE1 and PE4 like everyone else seems to do it. Means with two vid cards installed they are sandwiched right up against one another. Not sure why they decided to do this when the slot layout was already perfect for making PE1 and PE4 the x8 slots for SLI. Really bums me out because it checked all the right boxes for me, except this one big oversight that ruins it.
Theohmegahz I would like to possibly SLI cards with ACX cooling, but I don't like the fact that they're mashed together with virtually no space unless I went with the Z170 Classified board or another brand. I suppose temps won't be an issue with fan control + liquid cooler, but I don't want them running on high all of the time as I've read another needing to do ().
PathwayThis board is awsome :)
allessQuick question. Im owning this board and running evga gtx 1070 ftw sli on it. Do i need to plug in 6pin PCIE to the motherboard? If yes as i have no hole in my case there, would that be fine maybe
529thAre there any voltage read points on this board? If not which EVGA boards have them? My old 760 A1 X58 board had them.. EDIT: and will this kit work with it? http://www.newegg.com/Pro...231954&ignorebbr=1
