Ok, so here's the deal, i'm buliding a new gaming rigg. And my plan is to run two GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX 460 OC 1GB in Sli, but since the fans are so big (Picture and info in link below) will i have place issuses on this setup?
Im not noticing a Cooler on that list,
are you sticking with the stock unit? or intending to overclock at all? in which case I'd say look for a better Cooler as well
I dont see those cards being a problem in that case though, Its a big case
Oh, sorry but i'm thinking about the fans on the graphic cards. They take up two slots. In the review i posted this stands under Installation section:
We didn't encounter any problems during installation. And as you can see from the photos below, the card but uses up two slot space which is expected because of the cooler. However, you do need 2 x 6-pin PCIe power connectors ... so be sure that your power supply has this.
So i'm wondering will the be placeissues on the motherboard? Sorry if this is a stupid question. But i'm not all that inn to hardware.
It's fairly standard for gaming graphics cards to take up 2 slots. There shouldn't be any unusual issues with using those cards.
You could get this G.Skill PI Series 1600 MHz CL7 6 GB kit for $5 more, but better timings, assuming you're buying from newegg. Corsair Dominators tend to cost more than other brands with the same speed/timings.
