Can an ASUS Maximus VII support 3 graphics cards?

Q: Can an ASUS Maximus VII support 3 graphics cards?

I have an ASUS maximus VII here that I have been very happy with so far. By far one of my favorite boards to date. I am running dual GTX 780s on it and am looking to expand to 3gtx 780s..... It LOOKS like there is about a spare 6mm of clearance left over id I were to install a 3d card, but before I go drop another $450 I am hoping someone can tell me if the board will actually support 3way SLI. I cant think of why it wouldn't, but $450 is not a small amount to be doing an experiment.

I appreciate the support!

Preferred Solution: Can an ASUS Maximus VII support 3 graphics cards?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can an ASUS Maximus VII support 3 graphics cards?

I just did some research and see that it chokes up on the last one being PCIe2.0-8x I may buy a rampage in the future and use this one in my server farm.... We will see. Still looking for opinions. I think the obvious answer is the transfer rate is not worth it but if someone wants to tell me I'm wrong, I'm all ears.

I have a custom built PC based upon the ASUS MAXIMUS Formula with a EVGA GeForce 8800 GT video card. Everything works great. I wanted to add a second identical video card to support four monitors. When I add the second card in, the PC will no longer boot. The external LCD Poster just says CPU INIT. The fans, disk drives, etc. do not power up. If I take the second video card back out, it boots up fine. The power supply is a 650 watt ANTEC which the box indicates that it supports dual video cards. Any idea as to what I need to do to support two video cards not linked via SLI? TIA!

What is the second card you are trying to add? Do you have a 6-pin power connector connected to it, if it needs one?

The problem was the 650 watt power supply was inadequate. I swapped it for a 850 watt power supply and the PC boots just fine.

Quote:
As time goes on and a product catalog grows, it's not unusual for a company to reduce and eventually eliminate support for older products. In the case of ATI, AMD's graphics division, a new decision to reduce support for older graphics chips is about to take effect. To date, ATI has provided a new WHQL certified driver every month to nearly every graphics card capable of DirectX 9 acceleration. That includes cards all the way back to 2002's Radeon 9700 Pro. After this month's Catalyst 9.3 release, that will not be the case.
After Catalyst 9.3, products prior to the R6xx generation of graphics cards (that go by the Radeon HD 2000 series brand names) will be changed to "legacy support status." This means that these products will get quarterly WHQL driver updates, instead of monthly updates. AMD assures us that these products will still receive critical "hotfix" drivers if high-priority fixes are needed.

Do the newer graphics cards support 640 by 480 32bit color ?

I was reading a forum and one guy claimed that the newer graphics cards do not support 640 by 480 resolution anymore ?

I don't understand this, 640 by 480 has been a standard for years.

Does anyone know if this is true ?
Does anyone have any experience with this?

What have forum members found to be the fastest, highest quality half-height PCI-Express, DirectX 10 graphics card?

I've currently got an ATI x1300 Pro (256Mb) but would like something that has DirectX10 support and has more and faster memory.

A:Best half height graphics cards with DirectX 10 support

Depends on how much you really want to spend. I cant speak for ATI cards because im a fan of Nvidia, but if you dont want to spend to much you can go with the GeForce 8800 GT Video Card which is about $200, or the or just go all out with an 8800 Ultra.
But those are about the fastest you will get.

I have an Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard and I was wondering if it is compatible with PCI-E 2.1, as I am interested in a Gigabyte HD5670 G/Card which is of this configuration and takes its power via the board instead of a separate cable.
The only info I can find out for the MB is the following but it doesn't seem to reveal much.
2 x PCI Express x 16 slot for discrete graphics card
2 x PCI Express x 1
3 x PCI

Thanks,

Same as topic. Wondering if the Hero was worth the extra 50 bucks or so in terms of reliability, features, etc. Reliability is a big factor for me so if you think Hero is a bit more stable for the extra 50$ then please let me know. Thank you!

P.s. In case you were wondering I am building a gaming/video editing pc for around 1500 bucks
 

A:Asus Maximus VI Hero or Asus Z87-A LGA 1150

The Maximus VI Hero is no more stable than the Z87-A. The Maximus is more gamer oriented due to its overclocking features (which the Z87-A has, but not to that extent). If you can get a Z87 Sabertooth, that is probably the best in terms of reliability because it protects the components from dust.

A:Asus maximus II help

Looks like it is a crossfire board,but any PCI express
capable motherboard is usually capable of running a
single PCI express video card from the different manufacturers.
I dont see you having a problem running 1 nvidia based card.
It wont,of course,run in SLI.
You would have to get 2 crossfire cards.

Hello,
I'm looking to build a relatively cheap gaming build. This will be my first build and I'm stuck between choosing either the maximus or the deluxe. Both are currently within my budget. I'm looking to mainly play starcraft, league, dota, hon and watch movies on this desktop. As I am not near a router, I cannot connect with ethernet so I need the onboard wifi. This is my current build: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/daherr/saved/VsKscf

A:Asus maximus vi impact or z87i deluxe

Never had an Impact but on a formula right now and have had the Z87I deluxe I personally would say the Maximus is the better but I overclock my computers to the max and u can screw up any board doing that Processors are pretty forgiving if u do not burn it up and I say that get good cooling which is a requirement even for playing games if u live in a warm climate.
then I looked at u're part picker and would say get 16MGB of memory and get a hard drive for more storage, they are cheap.

A:Asus Maximus V Extreme or Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7?

Neither, I don't think it's wise to spend $350+ on what is now a legacy socket for a few extra Mhz. If you really need the extra CPU power you should save up for Ivy Bridge E (or get a 3770K), and if you're just gaming the 3570K at 4.2Ghz is more than enough.

Hi Everyone,

I have a new motherboard (Maximus v Gene) and I've brought a Icy Box (IB-865) card reader to make use of the USB 3 connector on the motherboard. However the unit works well for a dozen reboots and then it malfunctions. After a dozen reboots the Icy Box power light no longer powers up and the storage cards I plug into the unit no longer show up in windows. The only way i can resolve the issue is to open up the case and unplug and plug the unit back in. Its not faulty as i've retunred one unit thinking it was faulty but the same fault as reappeared on the new unit. I've tried upgrading and downgrading the BIOS and playing with a few settings but no joy. Can anyone think of anything i can try without having to keep opening up the case?

Thanks in advance

A:Icy Box (IB-865) on a ASUS Maximus v Gene Board USB 3 incompatible?

It could be that it gets put to sleep for no good reason (it happens), try the following:

Go to your Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > and click on the "Device Manager" button.

In the Device Manager window, find the item or items labeled "Universal Serial Bus controllers." Open it, and double-click the first item called "USB Root Hub."

In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog, click on the "Power Management" tab.

"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is checked by default.

Uncheck this box, and click "OK."

Repeat for all "Universal Serial Bus controllers." items if there is more than one.

A:Infected With W32/behavior:selfstarterinternettrojan!maximus And W32/rootkit-backdoor-based!maximus

Hello bruder and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

Most ISP's get their security software from an outside vendor. I do not know who provides NTL with their package. NTL's website did not state where it comes from. Both of the files listed by the NTL package are false positives. One is for Symantec LiveUpdate and the other is for Cubase. Neither are malicious.

I would suggest keeping an eye on what this software is flagging as infections and do not simply take it for granted that what it is saying is true. If it continues to flag legitimate files as infected files then consider replacing it with a different package.

Cheers.

Hi there,

My computer came with a VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP card, which is apparently a Graphics/Video Card with onboard video (or the other way around, video w/ onboard graphics) Now, this is a terrible card- it can barely play any modern games. I want to get a new graphics card, but I'm concerned if I install a new Graphics Card, that because of the onboard video, it will affect this greatly, or if I actually need a video card instead of graphics. What do I actually need, and will it adversely affect anything on my PC.

I can provide more information if you want...

I have tried all of the steps that you suggested before posting for help. I have downloaded Adaware, Spybot, Anti-virus program from my internet provider, MCAfee AVERT Stinger, Sygate Personal Firewall (although I am not sure what I should allow on the network or not... _) the Windows updates. And still no luck with the removal of these:

Summary I am putting this in the UX51VZ-IS71T: on Asus Asus Question Support? general forum section and please bear with me I had posted earlier a thread about my Asus Ultrabook backlit keyboard Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support? not illuminated Thank you all that have responded to that post but nothing worked I ended up sending in my Asus for RMA and warranty repairs Here is where the fun starts I first made my case with Asus and they informed me that my Serial Number was invalid I told them that it is wrong as I bought the Laptop from MemoryLabs com which is a Certified Asus Re-seller It even posts their name on Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support? their website in quot Where to Buy Asus quot Please do not take this as racist or anything derogative but the Asus support staff are all located in India and there is no way to talk to a person in America The repair facility is also contracted out to a company called BizCom in Milpitas California Now the men and women who work at the support center in India do their best but to my understanding they are a separate company working to just take calls Same with the BizCom company which they are great but again contracted so there is nobody who works for Asus or knows Asus's RMA system My laptop has been sitting at the repair center with no updates from Asus When I contact the support center directly they said the Serial Number was Invalid and that they had to talk to Asus about the warranty service I though Asus already fixed this when I sent them my Invoice of the Laptop and that it was a certified Reseller My Question Has anyone ever had this experience with Asus before Is there a number to talk to someone in America What would you do in this situation as this is my first RMA service and unaware of what is normal

A:Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support?

I had correspondence with ASUS via e-mail. It was a while ago now, I think it was a link on their web site. It was a waist of time really. I wasn't impressed. Replies took forever and the answers seemed to be scripted responses. I eventually just gave up asking any more questions. My issue was with creating recovery media. At that time there was no way of creating a recovery disk set in Windows 8.0. The utility I was referred to only worked in Windows 7. It became a non issue when I put an SSD in my laptop and did a clean install of 8.0.

Most of those contracted out call centers go by a flow chart. Ask this question, if the answer is yes, take this branch, if its no, take this other branch. The person asking you the questions may have no technical background at all. As soon as you say I don't know, your basically screwed. Assuming you can actually understand what they are saying. I'm not racist, but I don't think its unreasonable to be able to talk to somebody that is fluent in my native language. It seems to be the luck of the draw sometimes. I've had some that I could understand easily, and some that were almost impossible to understand.

I was wondering if my motherboard could take a 6600 PCI. How do i check?
I purchased this pc around 2 years ago.
 

A:Does my motherboard support PCI cards?

I assume you mean a PCI-E graphics card since an Nvidia 6600 doesn't come in a PCI model. The answer is no, your motherboard supports AGP graphics cards. Nvidia 6600s come in AGP models, however.

http://www.microcenter.com/product/422559/FM2A88X_Extreme6_FM2-FM2_A88X_ATX_AMD_Motherboard

But I am not sure how to tell if a video card is compatible.

Here is the card I want,
http://www.microcenter.com/product/...adeon_R7-260X_2GB_GDDR5_PCIe_30x26_Video_Card

I realize the PCIe 3.0 will fit to the motherboard, but I do not know if it will be compatible.

I do not understand the difference betweeen DDR3, DDR5 and GDDR5.

Thanks for help!
 

A:What video cards will support this?

Yes, those two items will be compatible with each other.

DDR3 & DDR5 are VRAM types and GDDR5 is a motherboard RAM identification.

For the future, you can go >>here<< and all your parts to see if there will be any issues with compatibility.

But keep in mind that there can be other compatibility issues such as the graphics card being too long to fit in the case.

I just recently played splinter cell chaos theory on PC, i have a 6800 GT overclocked to 420/1130 and when i have the game playing at shader 3.0 it is slow as hell and i am running this at 1024*768. I barely get 35 FPS, this also happened when i was playin chronicles of riddick which also supports shader 3.0 and my fps was even worse. I dont know if its my pc, software or the card. But if it is the card i dont get why nvidia will put the support for a technology that their current generation of video cards can not handle. :wave:
 

A:Shader 3.0 Support in Nvidia Cards.

it is not necessarily an issue with the shader model 3.0,do you have anything running in the background,do you have aa or af on?also it doesnt have to be the video cards fault for low fps count,it might be becuase of a weak or an unmatched processor to keep up or slower ram.shader model 3.0 is relatively new technology the fault doesnt have to be in the hardware(gpu) but might be in the software(game)as well.

Will newer video cards run older games? Lego Star Wars II support say they only recommend cards they have tested. Well their list of supported video cards is from 2006 and not very appealing. Many of them aren't even available now. Are they sure newer cards won't run their games or just unwilling to stick their neck out and say, yea maybe they could?
 

A:Old games-new cards? Lego support says no

I'm sure they will run fine if the OS supports it. Vista won't run some older games but those are going back at least 6 years.

I can't really think of any other reason why they wouldn't, the old cards technologies are built into the new cards with the possible exception of whatever the old Voodoo cards did..

I'm working on a HTPC/DVD system, and I'm planing on running Mythbuntu for the OS/DVR system. Does anyone know how AMD/ATI's drivers are for Linux? I'm thinking of running a SAPPHIRE 100292DDR3L Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card graphics card in it.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1850 (updated version of 1800) MCE Kit 1128 PCI-Express x1 Interface down the road.
 

A:Linux driver support for ATI and Hauppauge cards

There are two breeds of linux driver for AMD/ATI: The FOSS drivers, such as the xorg radeon and radeonhd divers and the closed source ATI proprietary driver: known as fglrx. For your card, based on the evergreen GPU, you are going to be looking at using fglrx as the support for evergreen is far from complete in the open drivers at present.

No idea with regards to TV tuner cards.

You are asking this question at the wrong place however. This is not a linux community/support forum. Head over the phoronix forums, linuxquestions or go the distro specific forum (i.e. in your case the ubuntu forums).

A:Are there video cards that support or can run games in 3840x2160 (4k)

I know that the Nvidia 780s support 4K, so would guess that anything newer would too. AMD no idea, but I expect that a visit to their web site would confirm which cards do.

Dont know which card you are currently using, so no idea on that one, but yes, HDMI cable works. I originally used my Displayport, but there were issues, mainly that I could only run at 2/4K at 30hz- this was not an issue with HDMI.

4K you tubes- if your screen is at 1920, thats th emax resolution you will see. The picture is dependent on output res, not the monitor res.

Newegg has a large variety of PCI cards.

Here they are, cheapest to most expensive.

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Video Cards & Video Devices,Desktop Graphics / Video Cards,PCI

You generally want something with DirectX 10.1. Any that do that are guaranteed to be good for Aero. DX9 is good too, but I see no sense in that.
So I advise DX10.1.

Nvidia has announced that it is going to be dropping driver support for a large number of its old graphics cards, including essentially the entire 8-series, 9-series, 100-series, 200-series, 300-series, and one card (the GeForce 405) from its 400-series. This includes mobileand desktop products. Support for a number of professional workstation products is also being terminated.

So I have two GTX465s, and normally they're suppose to be idling at .88V and they peak at about .97. However, one card is always at around .96 and the other is at .88. The odd card is also running a little warmer. I tried MSI afterburner. It helped it idle at .88, however, after the odd card reaches the peak again, it won't go back down to idle core voltage and stays at .96v.

Any suggestions?


Also, soon I'll be upgrading to a i7 system soon, but I'm unsure if I should keep my SLI set up, or move onto a single GTX570. After some looking around it appears the 570 has the same horse power as both 465s, if not a little less (without OC). Any opinions?

I dont think there is easy way to disable intel HD graphics.. it's optimus technology that means system uses intel HD to save energy for tasks that dont require much graphics processing power and switch to nvidia for more graphic intensive software. you can access more configuration options inside nvidia control panel.

You can always check Crucial.com to find out what your motherboard will accept and the capacity. Once you know this, you can go to any retailer you normally buy computer parts from....in store or online.

When you talk about memory and cards, people could mistake that for the kind that you use with a digital camera. Typically, the "cards" of memory that you use in your computer are known as sticks or chips.

A:Multiple Graphic Cards, Still freezes and Crashes Asus CM6830

Have you updated the current drivers?

No... You need to uninstall Ati Drivers, and install Nvidia ones. Else you will have issues like these.
Best buy is too dumb to see the difference between AMD and Nvidia.

A:What has happened to Asus support?

Maybe you were lucky last year. I used Asus boards for several years and never had a good experience with support generally. Mostly due to flaky web sites rather than outright non-response to a submitted issue, but it was enough to make me give up on Asus.

I don't think any of the motherboard manufacturers will win any support awards. You just have to hope you can avoid their customer support entirely.

I just installed Win10 on a 2nd partition (dual boot) from an ISO, but without the Asus mobo drivers CD (yet). The Asus site says this:

"The following motherboards offer Windows 10 driver for OS upgrade and compatible installation" and my Z87M-Plus mobo is listed.

but nothing to click on to download anything. Anyone know what this means? Does it mean old disc will work or MS provided full support on initial install? Every thing seems to work so far but fonts are a bit small, so I expect the screen res is not what I had earlier with the Win10 eval install.

Does anyone have any feedback on how well it installs preserving all orig apps? Will it work if most of my apps are actually on a separate drive? Did that to save space on the SSD where "C" sits.

A:Two Graphics Cards

I haven't had a great deal of experience with SLI myself but I can answer some of your questions to a certain degree. I am sure someone with far more knowledge will come along at some point.

1) From what I have seen in general, unless you are running two high end cards in SLI it is generally better to upgrade a single card for a better, single card. Of course, if you upgrade your cards aswell that will give an even better boost however it will double the cost.

2) Yes, both cards have to be the same.

3) Yes

4) Is your motherboard running an NVidia chipset? I don't know if it has changed but it always used to be the case that to use SLI you need an NVidia chipset.

SLI is the name given to NVidia method of running two cards, ATI use Crossfire which is essentially the same thing.

i just got a new comp and just found out it only has a pci express x8 and x1 and 2 pci slot. what graphics cards can i use that will play BF2 and other games
 

A:graphics cards

please correct me if I'm mistaking(I still run on good old AGP ) but as far as I know, one can run pci-express cards that are x16 on a x8 slot. It will run slower, but if you have a good card, it will run any game easily. The speed difference isn't that much. Anyway, it really depends on the games you want to play. If indeed you can run x16 pci express cards on a x8 slot, you can choose any card you want.. my advice is to choose one from the 7 series(anything in the nvidia geforce 7 series will run BF2 just fine) but with an eye on the future, a 7600gt is recommended. If you have the money to spare, an 7800gt/gtx or a 7900/7950 are even better. If you have money to burn, go for either the 8800GTS or 8800GTX. (these are from the new nvidia geforce 8 series) these are the top of the line cards at the moment, but they're expensive. Can someone please confirm that x16 cards will run on x8 slots though? thanks.

edit: did I just sound like an nvidia fanboy? I just completely forgot about ATI. it's because I've always used nvidia... hmm, well, the x1800/1900/pro/xt/xtx will do just fine too. At the moment, the 8800GTX is the best card on the market though, but I dont know if that's what you want.

I have tried the graphics card in the pci express 1 slot by itself and that does not work either.

Can anyone help, I have seen lots of conflicting info on the forums.

I currently have a run of the mill Dell Inspiron 530s and unfortunately, it only has space for a low profile card, which from what I understand limits my options by a lot.

It has a 3gb ram and a 250watt powersupply. The processor it has is a Pentium Dual core @ 2.20 GHz.

I would appreciate it if you guys could recommend me a decent low profile, x16 pci-express card that is below $100 and won't be bogged down by my low power supply.

Actually, i think that guy was just trying to be smart.

Need to know if your graphic card is a AGP slot or a PCI slot.

You actually need not do any setting as i believe the graphic card comes with a CD installer!

The process along the CD installer would update the bios, registry info.

Its a simple job. i think if u have some knowledge of computer installation, you can do it.

I'm building a gaming PC for a friend. He wants to know if using 2 video cards will cancel one of them out or if they would combine. If only one is used, which one would it be? For example, does any mobo-integrated video card help out an additional one, or is it ignored?

edit:
Didn't realize there was a similar thread below...its not exactly the same however and an answer would still be appreciated
 

A:Graphics Cards

You'll only get a benefit in performance if the video cards are in SLI(Nvidia) or Crossfire(ATI) configurations. In SLI or Crossfire the cards combine to improve performance and/or quality. Otherwise using two video cards results in each card being treated individually and in gaming only one card is used - a setup like this in only useful to run multiple monitors and has zero performance gains.

I want to buy a new graphics card and this is the one I had in mind BFG GeForce 9800 GTX+ OC 512MB PCI-E Video Card

I did a little looking around for prices on newegg and I came up with two more video cards that are similar but different in prices.

Zontac GeForce 9800 GTX
Evga GeForce 9800 GTX
BFG GeForce 9800 GTX+ OC on Newegg

The BFG card is obviosly better, and I'll probably end up buying that one, but is there really that much of a difference between the cards?

My second questions is the power supply. I'll definatly need to buy a new powersupply, but i don't want to spend a lot of money on it. I found this one on newegg - Apevia Power Supply - is it good enough to run the BFG card and why/why not?
 

A:Graphics Cards Help

BFG and Evga are both excellent brands, you can't go wrong with either. Apevia is crap and I wouldn't even think about that. There are some Thermaltake units at good prices.
You need a minimum 450 watt psu for single card.

A:2 graphics cards

For most people, 2 graphics cards is overkill. Hardcore gamers are an example of someone who would be interested in this kind of setup.

If you are wanting to run the latest PC games at high resolutions on full settings then two graphics cards may be something worth looking into. If that is the case with you, just post back and we can help you pick the right setup.

The downsides are price of course, not only are two cards expensive, but also the costs of having other components that support diual cards (motherboard and power supply).

Also want two ports on the card, a VGA and a DVI so I can hook up two monitors and spread my flight sim X across it.
