P6X58D Premium


Right now I'm torn between getting the Asus P6X58D Premium vs Asus P6TD Deluxe. I like the fact that the P6X58D has usb 3.0 and sata 6/gbs but what I'm unsure about is that I've heard people have had issues trying to crossfire two 5870s because of space. The PCI-e slots do look a little close, but I wasn't sure if anyone has had any airflow issues or what not?

  1. The slots are close but shouldn't really be a problem... A good case with good airflow is all you need... The 5870 itself produces a fair amount of heat, so if you plan on crossfiring two of them, i'd suggest a better cooling solution than air on the PX58D premium... I'm planing on adding one more 5850 to my existing setup, but the added heat generation is making me consider liquid cooling...
  2. Ok that helps a lot thanks!
