    Using any PCIe device in the third slot will result in not being able to use SLI. This is a limitation of the Haswell CPU. Viable workarounds include using a motherboard that incorporates a PLEX chip such as the Maximus VI Extreme, a motherboard that has the 3rd slot PCIe lanes coming from the south bridge or moving to the 2011 platform.

    I think I bought the wrong board. I'm running a single 290x and a Raidr ssd on my MVIF, glad I saw this thread before I bought a second 290x. Which was going to be next week, nice one Praz and Nate for sharing. I was originally going to get the MVIE but settled on the MVIF thinking it was all the board I'd need. Thanks again, this has saved a lot of head scratching.

    Hi Welshy, You can use the Raidr Express with X Fire on the Formula VI board but not SLI. The pcie lanes go like this for 3 cards x8 x4 x4. AMD cards only need x4 to work where Nvidia needs x8.

    Nate sir,cheers for that. Had my xb all measured up for a MVIE. I wasn't looking forward to having to shell out for a new board and water blocks on top of another card and block. just to keep my trusty Raidr. I had considered a pair of Samsung 240gb ssd's in raid and 3 290x, and ditching the Raidr. Probably stick with 2 for now, time to finish my build and get back to Bf4. Thanks again, AMD ftw
