A8N-SLI to A8N32-SLI upgrade worth it? Tags: Asus Performance SLI Socket Motherboards Last response: March 29, 2006 1:46 PM in Motherboards Share electrikfrenzy March 25, 2006 5:40:56 AM Like the subject says... Is a A8N-SLI Deluxe to A8N32-SLI Deluxe upgrade worth it? I have two XFX 7800GTX Extremes... does anyone know how much more performance would come from updating to 2x16 sli versus 2x8? Also is there a new socket I should wait for? I'm a little bit behind the times.

My case / PSU is a cheap one, I have no case fans but keep side panel open and all temps are reported by Asus Probe 44c & below, under the "Stress Prime 2004" test for an hr. Two months now & works fine; my CPU O/clocked to 2.55ghz but do not know how to go further. O/clock experts say this one is superior, BUT do keep asking in other forums too for expert opinion.

As far as I remember there was a significant speed difference between 2x8 and 2x16, however, the difference between 1x16 and 2x 16 was rather insignificant Can't find your answer ? Ask !
