Heya,

I'm looking to buy a new rig soon, and have a question. Has anyone installed a 7800GTX on an DFI nF4 Ultra-D board (non-SLi one)? I only ask because from shots of the board the northbridge fan seems close to the PCI-X slot. I know the 7800GTX is longer than the 6800 Ultra, and was wondering if this posed an issue for anyone. Thanks for any insight :D

The northbridge fan is in the same location as the SLI board correct? Well, I can verify it works with the SLI board.

I saw an article last night about a capacitor on the MSI SLI boards preventing installation of a second 7800 for SLI; they specifically mentioned that there was no problems with SLI on DFI and ASUS boards.

I have the SLI version - but I think the fit will be the same; the 7800 extends over the top of the chipset fan, there isnt much clearance but it makes it! guess that's why the chipset fan is low-rise!
