same cooler as on the HD 7570
It is the right direction, one of the adapters is bullshit. I've proofed it by myself (and with voltmeter).Btw, which way were you spinning the fan? It seems in the picture that your adapter connector closest to the PCB swaps the polarity black/red. Perhaps it doesn't matter. Just curious.
No. But compare the coolers please. Sumo-style vs. anorexiaI'm not sure if the charts are wrong or if I'm just reading them incorrectly but it appears the passive cooling has better performance than the low profile. Am I wrong?
Because I like SLI, no other reason really. I enjoy the flexibility it offers between raw performance and more esoteric benefits like PhysX or SLI AA. It might be an addiction, I was hooked after my 9800s just like I was with my Voodoos and I'll never be able to go back to a single card. It's just not as fun to me.Why not buy one fast card?A $250 GTX760 will probably be twice as fast as two GTS450Red_Frog :This would be fantastic if 750s could SLI. Still waiting for Nvidia to give me a worthwhile upgrade path from my GTS450s for less than 200 beans. I'd love to get a pair of 650 Boosts and add them to a loop but I'm afraid that supply will probably dry up long before they break $100.
OK, I understand but the following statement at the start of the article is misleading:The goal was only to show, that a low-profile and single-slot card might work. It's clear that nobody can take a saw and modify the reference board...
Not a big deal though, it becomes pretty obvious pretty quickly what you were trying to do.Can you build your own low-profile board based on GM107? Sure, if you have the right AMD donor.
