Need some advice

Recommended Posts

There is two ethernet connections on SLI-DR. One that is with Nvidia nForce networking connection and another Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 connection.

 

Which is the best to use?

 

Also, because my gfx card is so big (7900GTX) I think it is slightly catching the fan - there is proberly little i can do but it is making a hell of a lot of noise. I make sure the chipset fan goes on full at around 50oC is around 43oC on idleish. Just wondering if there is much i can do without setting it to sli where it would create more problems over usb attachments etc.

 

Ta

 

P.S Thanks to all those who helped me out last time. I fixed my problem with non booting with a replacement hard drive and ram and now it works all a ok.

Marvell uses less CPU than the Nvidia one...

you can do what I did...my 7800gt covers the chipset, so I moved the jumpers to SLI and installed the card on the bottom slot working at 8x....doesn't change a thing from 16x so no performance loss

I really don't want to use SLI bridge as i mentioned earlier there is much stuff on my motherboard and it would proberly bump into some usb connections on the board and would mean a lot of messing around which i dont want.

 

I would like to know what temperature the Chipset should be kept at at the minute it is 43oC.

Chipset is designed to handle VERY high temperatures...so don't worry about it....besides....43 idle is about one of the best temps I've seen here at the street....
