Can the HX1000 Support the New EVGA X58 in Triple SLI?


Recommended Posts

The power supply has been running double SLI on my 780i. The new X58 board has Volterra digitial VRD for the CPU and just about every OC feature I can think of. I have 2 GTX260 cards and will shortly add a third.


The motherboard takes 2 8-pin connectors and each video card takes 2 6-pin connectors. The PSU has all the cables.


However, it seems to only have 4 8-pin plugs on the PSU (+1 8-pin CPU and 2 6+2 PCI cables). How do I plug 4 6+2 PCIe cables and 1 8 pin CPU power cable into the PSU at the same time?

It doesn't look promising. It seems they only have 4 8-pin modular connectors. I guess they weren't envisioning a need for both.


Many will run dual GPU cards to get quad SLI/Crossfire. However, you can OC the heck out of a 260, and can't on a 295 because of heat and power limitations; 2 8pin connectors for 2 processors versus 2 6pin connectors for 1 processor.
