  1. Yes, but it's a bad idea, SLI scaling is poor, and support is non-existent in quite a lot of titles.
    What's your budget for a system?
    What's your use?
    A Ryzen 1700 will perform the same as a 7700k at higher than 1080p resolutions in gaming, and outperform it in almost all other respects. It'll also last longer due to its 16 threads.

    I already have the PCs, except for the 2nd GPU but the Aorus HB SLI Bridge have already been bought.

    btw
    2 spacing = 3.14inches or 80mm
    1 spacing = 2.36inches or 60mm

    I have 2 days left before my package arrives from the states, that means if I need to replace the item this should be the time.

  3. Can you return the first GPU too?
    Get a 1080 Ti, much more stable, and will perform FAR better.

    can't return the first GPU,local stores in my country don't take returns because of fear of bit mined GPUs(my 1070 is 2months old)

    the SLI bridge is temporary since I still have my old i7 3770k build i'm gonna put the new GTX 1070 there, the SLI thing is for fun but I only have one shot at the item once it arrives here from the states i cant return it anymore

    my main problem is the distance because the HB SLI Bridge has 60mm or 80mm ones and I'm not sure which one fits the Z270x gaming 5.

  5. Oh, okay then.
    Return/cancel it.
    Wait for the 11 series to release, and get an 1180 when that time comes, and sell your 1070 just beforehand.
    The performance will be significantly better and more stable on a more powerful single card as opposed to SLI where you're not even guaranteed to get any extra performance.

    my question is still unanswered xD Do I need an Aorus HB SLI Bridge 2 spacing or 1 spacing?

    I can't wait for the next cards

    thats 60mm right? this is so confusing

    aorus hb sli brdige 2 spacing = 80mm
    aorus hb sli brdige 1 spacing = 60mm

    now on nvidia

    1 spacing = 40mm
    2 spacing = 60mm
    3 spacing = 80mm

    -_- sorry for being so annoying @Chugalug
