    If their last PCI E slot wasnt weakened when a Full speed Device occupies the top 2, all PCI E 16X slots should be 16X or at the least 8x.

    if we're still talking about the asrock board, it runs 8x/8x/4 or 16/0/4

    the chipset isnt designed for triple crossfire, 880G is the succesor to 780G - which is mATX (not meant for so many slots), asrock have just done their weird magic again

    you could go gigabyte for less, and their boards tend to have dolby encoding on the onboard audio too.

    I think it might be at the cost of that last PCI E Slot, who would put a 16x card in a 4x slot, I would have no idea

    Hey guys, new member here. A bro from the 4chons told me to post here.

    A few days ago:

    After some cable management:

    Then added a makeshift fan held down by zip ties to do something with my empty 5.25 bays:

    It's just sitting on top of my card reader with some velcro and zip ties:

    Beautiful:

    Ah hey man it was me with the other Sniper. Looks a lot better with the updated cable management. You should also fill out your system specs in the User CP to let people know what you're running. Welcome to TPU! :toast:

    Welcome to TPU Shaolin. Another great thing you can do. Cheap also. Get some aluminum. Cut it in the amount that you have left under the hdd. Spray it Black and it'll hide the wires that was left over. Yeah, you don't see it with the side panel on.. But boy, will it make a difference once you take it off! Did that with my Cosmos when I redid the Loop.


    But man, that sniper sure looks good. Yours and SJ's makes me think different about those cases.

    i did with my 4870 for less than a 10% hit in crossfire, a while back.

    i'll never go above 2 cards anyway, so thats not a loss.

    That's one fat heatsink. One of the better looking MSI boards I've seen to date.

    DrMOS just sounds so cool. If it was a movie character, I bet it would be played by Harvey Keitel:pimp:
