Windows 7: Computer Build

No, it won't

As you can see in Doc's pic, the GPU fan, the CPU fan and the case fan or fans will all do their jobs, so there will be no stag-net air so to speak.

If you look at the pics of my machine, you will see the 120mm CPU fan along with three intake and two exhaust 140mm fans, plus the GPU fan. No overheating going on here !

Normally the top, or first PCIe slot is a X16 slot which has the most bandwidth when used alone.

Check the specs though, I suspect if you use a SLI setup the slots will be x8+x8.

You can`t cancel an order. You can check the return policy, if it lets you return an item, you will pay a 15% restocking fee, and you will have to pay for your shipping again when they ship you out the new item. If you ask them nicely they might pay for the return shipping.

If you run sli the slots run at 8x speed, don`t worry about it.

And as mentioned if you use 1 card it goes in the slot closest to the cpu .

The obvious reminder: Please watch videos about how to apply thermal paste, it's nothing special but most greens forget it their first build, and then when they power up the beast they fry their CPU. If you didn't buy it already, buy some thermal paste. No, peanut butter looks similar but won't do.

Any brand should be fine, since you are using the stock cooler anyway. I have a ridicolous amount of MX-2 (i think), that so far never let me down. It's rather old-ish though.

Video about applying thermal paste.

Also, let your system settle for a while before you even start thinking about overclocking. You should not really need it.
