Hi all,
I’m want to put two GTX1080Ti into SuperMicro 7049GP-TRT (SuperMicro X11DPG-QT motherboard with 6 PCI-E 3.0 x16). There are 4 PCI-E slots dedicated for GPUs; two assigned to CPU2 (slot 6 and 8) and two assigned to CPU1 (slot 2 and 4). Looking forward to your advice on how I should arrange my cards and which slots to use?
I was planning to use slot 8 (which is the first slot out of the four, closest to CPUs) and slot 4 (third) to keep good ventilation.
Sorry if the question is naive or trivial but it’s the first time for me to install twin GPUs.

Yes, I have both CPU sockets populated. I installed my GPUs into slots 8 and 4 as I initially planned. It seems working (at least to some extent since now I’m struggling with drivers and display issues). I guess that the topic can be closed. Thanks for the help!
