    Not SLI though because good old Nvidia makes you (or rather the mobo manufacturer) pay for that license.

    It's all just good ol' business.

    I'm just reading off of AMD's own chart for CF/SLi compatibility.

    If you read carefully it says 2x8 PCIE 3. That's because the x370 are the only ones that do that. In the B350s you get 16 lanes for the first card and only 4 for the second.

    Oh yeah, CF doesn't have the minimum pci-e lanes requirement. But you probably don't want to crossfire in a 16x-x4 configuration. Going from x8 to x4 on the 2nd card actually hurts performance gains compared to x8-x8.

    Why are you arguing both sides?

    What? I don't prefer either. I was just pointing out differences.

    Damn that make up though... :eek:

    You could have used the newer, cooler version of Mr. Dent.
