Default Re: Considering picking up another 480 for tri - sli.

Which model EVGA X58 are you using. If it is the 760 like myself, then forget it. There is an issue with tri-SLI and that model. It melts the mainboard plug on the PSU. It doesn't do it with SLI, only Tri-SLI. You should search the EVGA forums. There are a few posts about it. They may have fixed it in an updated version though.

Here is another thread over at Overclockers discussing it.

Save your money and get a better Intel SSD that supports Trim.
Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition | Intel 4930k | SS Phasechange | 16GB Corsair Platinum DDR3 1866 | Asus GTX680 x2 SLI | Corsair AX1200 Watt PSU | Lian-Li PC-8NWX | Intel 520 120Gb SSD x2 | Samsung S27A950D 27" 120Hz | HP ZR24w 24" S-IPS x3 Nvidia Surround @6000x1200 | Xonar Essence STX
