Just got this board over the weekend and I have two questions that I hope somebody can help me with. Did some searching and could not find the answer.
Currently I have 2 GTX 680's in SLi in slot 1&4 with a SB X-FI Fatality card in slot 3. I'm going to add another GTX 680 for 3 way SLi with the card going in slot 2. Question is can I put the SB X-Fi PCIE 1x card in the slot 6? Will it work and not slow down the cards down from x16,x8,x16?
Other problem is with my memory frequency (G.SKILL 2133mhz F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH 9-11-10-28 1.65v). I can run 3D Mark 11, 3D Vantage, just about everything runs fine with the frequency @ 1600 or at 2133, Even did Easy Overclock guide posted by Raja and it runs great at 4.5Ghz at both frequencies. But soon as I run BF3 @2133 the game with lock after a little bit of playing. I can Alt tab in to windows and close down BF3. Windows is running fine.
Put the system to defaults frequency @ 1600, no over clock BF3 runs for hours no issues, Put the Easy Over Clock back 4.5Ghz, frequency @ 1600 no issues at all. But soon as the memory is put at 2133 I get the issues. Tried several different video drivers same problem. I did notice the memory posted @ 2139mhz. Could it be a a bad stick memory or do I need to make a tweak?
Thanks in advance.
