Personally I would get a heatsink that more fits your board to make use of the first PCI-E slot.

Anyway, what I'm saying, is that other cards with single-slot cooling, since you're in the upgrade market, should work just fine. Since the A64 line has their memory controllers on the CPU, there's no northbridge on the motherboard. Surround sound doesn't work at all.

Quote #11 Tue Dec 06, 2011 10:07 am I can't even remember the last time I saw a consumer mobo have more than three expansion slots filled. I think all video cards point *downwards*. This meant that the boards were larger than they needed to be, and had a lot of unusable space--and critically, less space for expansion cards.

Also, keep in mind that PCI and PCIe 1x, is not the same ^^ The PCI slot on the Sabertooth P67 is all the way down on the board, not above http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...abs-_-29102019 Core i7 Heater (15 items) CPUMotherboardGraphicsRAMIntel Core i7 920 @ 4GHzEVGA E760 Classified NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470Corsair Dominator GT 12GB DDR3 2000 MHzHard DriveHard DriveOptical DriveOSSamsung 830 it look sthough like theyve redesigned it a bit as all the pix of that model are different to the one I have and have the fan a bit further back Reply With Quote 2011-04-24,07:10 PM #7 Rendhammer View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message View Started Threads The Patient Join Date Feb 2011 Posts 220 Originally Posted by Pancha I had

It's been fixed since AT.

I guess we know what won there.I'm guessing his motherboard has only one PCIE slot and the first PCI slot is quite close to it. Post relevant photos of build/parts here. Fingers, but no feet. Be descriptive.
