    Hi,

    Im thinking of upgrading my board to the DFI UT Ultra-D. I am using an XP-120 cooler and the thermalright site says the heatpipe on the cooler will block the first PCI-E slot. Does this mean no SLI for me, just one gfx card? Anyone else resolved any such issue? Should I just order a different heatsink?

    Cheers

    the ultra D has 2 8x lanes, and can be modded very simply to become the SLi version:)

    The 1st PCI slot is a PCI-E 4x slot and the XP/SI-120s will cover that. Im using an SI-120 in my board and can still fit a graphics card in the top 8x PCI-E slot, leaving the bottom one empty. There is about a 1cm gap between the back of my card and the coolers heatpipes. :)
