Pics or you lie.

Actually I don't even need pics to prove you lie.

Newegg.com - DFI LP UT 790FX-M2R AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

That motherboard doesn't even have 4 pci-e slots.

And even if i did you can't fit 4 dual slot cards in a case with 7 rear slots...


Way to be a total **** trying to spam up your posts...

And btw,

HAHAHAHAHA. I was just going to call BS, you beat me to the punch!

OP- You know how it works. Pics or it didn't happen.

And FYI, your mobo has 3 pci-ex slots, and 4 pci slots.

I GOT MY PLAYSTATION 3 TO WORK IN SLI WITH MY 9800GTX AND 2x 9600GT'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea, see. Your 8 way crossfire sounds a dumb as that.

BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS

MSI announced a 4 PCI-E mobo in 07, but I never saw it. OH. And their wasn't any driver supprt.

The K9A2 Platinum has 4 x dual slot PCI-E 16X slots
I use one in my system (with 2 x single GPU 3870's)

But, it's not possible to have 4 x 3870 X2's all in crossfire.
Firstly, there's no drivers to support it.
Secondly, the 3870 X2's only have one crossfire bridge connector
to get more than 2 cards in crossfire, you need cards with two crossfire bridge connectors. And so far, only single GPU RV670 cards have that.

I know it's possible to have 3 x 3870's, or 2 x 3870 X2's in crossfire. I'm not sure if 4 x 3870's can run in crossfire, but 4 x 3870 X2's definitely can't.

It is possible to do that with some cases, but not often.
It would mean one half of the last bracket would overlap.

Or, it is possible to cut the bracket in half, and turn it into a single slot bracket.

But anyway, what StoolKitten is allegedly doing is not possible.
