1aschnitzel Posted April 22, 2006 Posted April 22, 2006 I am going to order a 7900GTX whenever it will be available again in my favourite online shop. But untill then I need to know what DFI Board I need to take. My SLI DR broke down and I will have to get a new one. However I am wondering if a double slot graphic card like the 7900 will fully cover the motherboard fan! Before I had a 7800GTX which was much more slim but it already made cooling pretty complicated. Still I was capable to keep the motherboard at around 45°C at high load. :drool: I definelty want to stick to DFI, but I dont want to have this cooling trouble once again, or even a more complicated one. On the Expert board the PCI-E slots are a bit more away from each other which should give the fan a little bit more space to breath... but will that be enough to compensate for the 7900 double width? I doubt it! So the question is the following 1.) would a 7900GTX fully cover the mobo fan of a SLI-DR? Would it look better on an Expert? 2.) If I change from SLI-DR to Expert, would I need to reinstall windows or drivers? 3) Does anyone have a double slot graphic card and if so could you make photo so I can have a look in how far the motherboard fan is covered? Muchas gracias? :angel: Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
