Mmmmmm now Crossfired Dual ROG STRIX RX480 OC 8gb models
cables managed and water cooler installed
well I figured out im somewhat limited using the skylake board with my kaby lake cpu, not only for new features such as netflix 4k, faster chipset, accepts more ram etc Im wanting to do a small atx build for my room for my tv soo tomorrow on my way home from work im going to scoop up the motherboard to match my gpu's ... oh yea and its got matching RGB
did you already change the board out and stuff?
im doing it after work you are just seeing the RGB from the graphics cards and water cooler
all this hardware and you're using just an HDD?? wtf. get an SSD for the OS man. you're just bottlnecking that thing.
i think he's got a little SSD thingie in there right above his platter drive. a 1TB SSD>
ah i see it on the first page now. he says "500 mb" but i'm assuming he means GB.
ive got a 500 gig ssd and a 1 tb mechanical, and now have the motherboard to match my gpu's and take advantage of my 2400 mhz ram and the kaby lake processor time to get home and install this shiet I like how my $800 max original budget has now turned into 2k+... im ruhtarded but now have everything but cpu/ram for my room pc build
andddd this board supports 3 way crossfire..no scott goddamn it you dont need a 3rd gpu
anddd its done... and case modded to make radiator fit in front, looks titties
i'd move the CPU cooler to the top fans. that way you're not blowing warm air on your GPUs
how? i only see 2x PCIe x16 slots. and the way they are spaced, you cant fit a 3rd GPU in there.
i see the 3rd PCIe slot now in your earlier pic. but being in the 7th slot, you cant fit a 3rd 2-slot GPU in there. it would only work if you had benching station that was open and not enclosed in a case.
pfft you only need to output from one card anywys lol
ok I think I might buy the asus rog dual bay gaming display to match my board gpus and since im not using the optical bays, ok moved the cooler to the front as a exhaust fan and lowered temps moderately , and yes I have to go to a full size atx case to go 3 way crossfire currently im on a mid size atx
also there are 2 120mm Corsair high volume fans on side panel as intake for the gpu's
Lol that display.
still wont physically fit unless he moves his PSU somewhere else.
and then he's starving the middle card for air
"full" or "mid" ATX is irrelevant.
ATX form factor specs 7 PCI expansion slots and most cases will only have 7. the way your MB is, you need an "8th" slot for a dual size card. some cases have it, some cases dont. but its not true to the ATX form factor. just be mindful of it.
