EVGA How To: Setup SLI

We're back with the next instructional video in our "EVGA How To" Series.  In this video, Matthew Decker will walk us through the benefits, setup and configuration of setting up an Nvidia SLI setup!  Nvidia SLI or Scalable Link Interface is the process of adding a second Nnvidia GTX graphics card to your system to significantly increase the performance of your gaming.  

In our "EVGA How To" video this week, we will be featuring our EVGA GTX 960 SSC ACX 2.0+ Gaming graphics card which supports 2 Way SLI and our EVGA Pro SLI V2 Bridges.  

The installation of your SLI capable graphics card is simple, but it is always recommended to reference your motherboard manufacture's manual to ensure you are installing your graphics card in the correct or recommended PCIE slots.  

An tell tell sign of what type of SLI your graphics card supports would be via the number of SLI connections on the graphics card.  A single SLI connection on each graphics card would mean that it would only support 2 Way SLI,  graphics card with 2 connections would be capable or supporting a 3 Way SLI or 4 Way SLI configuration.  Making sure your motherboard supports these configurations as well would be via their manufacture specifications information on their website.

EVGA How To: EVGA ACX CPU Cooler Installation

Its time for our next instructional video in our "EVGA How To" Series.  In this video, Matthew Decker will introduce you to our EVGA ACX CPU Cooler and walk you through the simple installation steps.  

The EVGA ACX CPU Cooler was built to perform with 5 8mm heatpipes that are arranged to receive the maximum airflow, direct-touch base technology provides excellent thermal transfer,  and has a wind tunnel fin design for optimal air-flow and more.

The center section of the fins form an enclosure in front of the fan hub where air flow is at its lowest, and the edges of the fins are closed. This creates two wind tunnels that maximize airflow around the heatpipes.
And of course, the full sleek black look and PWM controlled red LED fan are the perfect match for any EVGA gaming rig! 

So if you looking for a new CPU cooler or looking to replace that stock cooler that came with your CPU, make sure to check out our How To video below on the simple installation instructions.  Our EVGA  ACX CPU cooler is available on the EVGA web store now!
