Default Re: SLI 2 GTX 580's Help please

If you have three PCIe 16x slots,you would want to put them in the first slot and the third slot and if you have a three way ,it works just fine on two cards.It will run cooler and even if the third slot just runs at 8x you will miss no speed .I did this with mine ,my first two slots runs at 16x but it puts them two close together.
