Each card will require a separate PCI-E power connector, hence you will require 3 in total.

I just watched this movie on youTube, and the overclocking dude said that there are 2 x PCI-E x16 slots (8x in CrossFire), and 4x PCI-E from the chipset.

(Same MB as me)

Go to 58 seconds to see it.

Does that mean I should only have dual-crossfire, or should I stick with tri-crossfire?

What a cool MB!! I would just go with the 2 if I where you since the bus goes down to 8x and the 3rd slot is 4x JMO

Personally, I would stick with dual-crossfire as described in the manual.

If you plan on overclocking you will be cutting it close on power IMO.
