    Default Ga-x58-ud7 gtx590 sli

    Everywhere on the internet I read that this board has been approved for 2 GTX590 cards as you can have a spare slot between the two for cooling. I don't see how this can work. The only way to achieve this is to use slots 2 and 4 and I never get one of the cards recognized in slot 4.

    Does anyone from gigabyte have a comment?

    Has anyone been able to get 2 GTX590's to work with this motherboard?

    Do both cards show in windows Device Manager?
    Did you try swapping both card positions?
    Can you get a longer SLI connector and install the cards in the PCIEx16_1 and PCIEx8_2 slots?
