  • 680GTX going in...56k warning...if anyone is still dial up !!

    Opening up my Gamer

    2 x Asus Direct CU II 580 GTX in SLI.... triple slot cards..



    First one out (note the Xonar with its PCIE x1 extender



    Second out..so thats what the board looks like



    580 GTX next to the 680 GTX no idea why its upside down.....



    680GTX in her new home



    Wire up ready to go...and the Xonar has a home it can fit into finally without a ghetto mod lol...

      nice one! why the upgrade? i assume 2 580's are more powerful then a 680 or do you need the vram?, is that how your 680 looked or did you remove the sticker? thought the PNY came with a XLR8 sticker on it

        I upgraded mainly due to the fact I was not using the power of the 580's in SLI....and the 680 for some reason did not have a sticker on it just that stuff you get on a new phone.......which I think I actually prefer...!!! ..

          Not sure if they are but whenever I see the triple slot cuII cards they always look like the pcb is bending, I had a big triple slot cooler on my 460 and now on my 560 and have never seen it droop down at all, not sure if the asus pcbs are more flexible than the msi ones or what.

          Edit: Looks like the accelero I have is miles lighter than the cuII, that probably explains it.

            No bend or droop whatsoever....they are not that heavy as cards go...
