Post: RE: Questions about 3090 cooling and form factor

I bump my thread to see if people could confirm or infirm that the MOBO (x570 taichi) is a fine choice, and if it can support 3 GPU :o Thanks a lot, and happy new year :)

Thanks for the answer, For the Gigabyte Z 490, it has an intel socket which allows only to use CPUs with a few pci lanes, versus an AMD socket with enough PCI lanes for the 3 graphic cards + 1 or 2...

Or maybe using pci risers to space the GPUs a bit, but I dont know how to fit them in a standard gaming case :/ EDIT : using a case with a vertical GPU would allow to use slot 1 and 3 horizontally,...

Thanks for your answer ! Unfortunately, having a free space between each card involves using a mobo with like 5+ pci slots, which starts to go out of budges :/ I wanted to design this rig with ...

Thanks for your answer NoReply. I was looking at EPYC cpus at the moment. How do we know that running gpus at 4x is fine ? Was it all through trial and error approach ? I guess its a waste of mo...

Does it mean that haschat or JtR work faster than the GPU ? I don't get it, the bus bandwidth is significantly lower at x4 than at x8 or x16 (respectively two times and 4 times lower). It doesnt have ...
