    I have checked the manual (once at a glance), still better to ask their tech directly.

    ^^^ I agree, but what if the tech accidentally gives an incorrect answer?
    I'd rather find several reviews from reputable review sites that show that ssd sata3 speeds are NOT negatively affected while running an SLI setup.

    The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

    ps: Sorry, I hate double negatives, I want to see real world test results that show that the ssd sata3 performance is as good with an SLI or CrossfireX setup as it is with a single video card setup
