    use the bottom as physx and the top one in sli.
    you can choose whitch card you want to run physx in nvidia controll panel.
    you can even instal a 2XX and run that as physx if that was an option ( as long as its not bridged to the other cards ).

    correct me on this if im mistaken.

    Indeed, those cards have a brilliant air-cooler on them! But I still think that they were not designed for too close installation of the cards... - but hey, if the temps are right for your needs, then all is OK...

    Not 100% sure what board you have, but for 3-way SLI those are the correct PCIe slots? I mean, are the ones suggested by the manual?

    I had 3- and 4-way SLI and CF setups only on the RIVE, CHVF-Z and MVE - there the soft SLI bridges were good enough...

    Also, may I ask why do you need 3 or 4 cards in that system? You know that the scaling after 2-way SLI gets worse and worse - right?

    The rear metal shrouds are not hugely necessary so they can be removed if you want to run 3/4-way SLI without the extra gap. It's installed mostly for looks (people demand it).

    Dear All,

    I'm planning a nVidia 3+1 surround screen setup.

    With the +1 as a ASUS VG278H for chatting, 3d-movies and 3d-games:
    http://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/VG278H/

    And for the 3, I am planning 3X ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q, for normal gaming:
    http://rog.asus.com/296652014/news/r...aming-monitor/

    looking somthing like this:

    Now as the PG278q only works only from displayport, I need at least 3X GPU's to drive it, as they have a native resolution each of 2560x1440. And probably requiring that amount of processing power...

    The fourth card will then be used for PhysX as suggested by [kkn] aswell, and for driving the VG278H screen.

    Dear MarshallR@ASUS, I will look into removing the back plates... Do I loose my warranty then?

    Dear Zka17, I havent run crazy benchmark apps on the machine yet, but for normal gaming so far, no overheating problems yet...

    I'm very frustrated on the moment with my GPU purchase and are looking at swopping or replacing them with other cards...

    My ASUS Motherboard and ASUS Vulcan Pro headsets are working perfectly though...!

    Let me know what you think.

    Best Regards,

    Hi,

    I am having the exact same problem. the fans are hitting each other. I tried separating them manually by using rubber tips but the cards are getting heated up in 10 min of game play and system is getting shut down. Have you heard anything from Asus help Desk ?

    place a fan on the side door if you have that option so it blows air on to the cards.

    superneospider.
    i can not guarantee if it will work.
    if you have a old card you can try it ( that way you dont have to buy and if it dont work sit there whit nothing that dont work )
    there mabye 2 that have done it on this page but i recomend to google some before trying it out first.

    Yes, there is not enough room from correct airflow... beside pointing a fan on them, you could also try checking if the fans of all cards are set to run at higher speeds... - sync them in GPU Tweak or in whatever other application you're using...

    The max is 2-way SLI with the original air-coolers... at least that's my opinion... - anything higher needs water-blocks...

    Dear mavthegenius,

    our local ASUS support was not very helpful. First they suggested putting in rubber spacers, which we know wont work. Secondly they said that long flexible SLI cables might help, but not willing to supply. Thirdly they said they not dealing directly with the public and not willing to accept a return, that I must contact the wholesalers. The Reseller/Wholesaler just responded that the card is not "faulty" and cannot be returned. So I'm currently a bit stuck with with physical oversized cards... Please let me know if you get any better help or a solution? I'm currently looking at the EVGA 780 Ti SC's that are within two slot widths...

    Best Regards,

    PS. Make sure your fans are running, else you will run into cooling problems and overheating/damaging the cards....
