Zotac GTX 480 3X SLi Classified Motherboard?

Simple yet hard question for me to find the answer to.


Will 3 Zotac GTX 480 AMP Editions fit in my EVGA 3 Way Classified motherboard?


No luck with google on this question so I am asking the experts.

  1. each AMP edition takes up 3 slots, so i guess the answer is no =(

    any particular reason you need 3?
  2. I have always ran 3 way SLI and I have 3 monitors. I know its overkill but that is the setup I want. any ideas on how to cool the EVGA cards then?

    What is your ambient (room) temp? And the rest of your spec's?

    Do you even have a cpu fast enough for that setup?

    Intel i7 975

    About 27 c
  6. 27c is way too hot to be running TRI-480's on AIR. You might want to look at a watercooling setup.
  7. Im adding aan airconditioner to the room to cool it down. I will park it right next to the PC

    Would 18 c be ok?

    well you dont have to go as far as 18c, I was shooting for at least 24c. I assume you are not paying the electric bill :lol:

    anyways you should be fine with that A/C, take your time with the cable management to get optimum airflow in your case, a mess of wires can cause a disaster.

    He could be one of those who know how to steal electric. As for temps I agree and water cooling is cheaper in the long run than using a dedicated A/C. Blocks can be expensive but for you it will save you money.

    yup, if I were to spend 1350.00$ on the GPU's alone I would not hesitate to put them under water. On air I wouldn't be able to tolerate the heat that is coming from the PC while pushing all 3 GPU's maxed out on 3 screens.. Hell no, my single 5850 can warm up the room when overvolted quite easily, I can only imagine what TRI-480's will do..
