I want to move my folding off my CPU and on to GPUs. FAH uses little CPU, memory and disk. All the computation is done on the GPU with very little data transfer. My thought is to start with a single GPU and add a second (non-SLI) later. The box will be running 24x7.

Looking at the SLADE 2 with:

Intel Core i5-8400 (6-Core) 2.80GHz
8GB DDR4 3000MHz
GeForce GTX 1080 8GB
GeForce GTX 1080 8GB (add later)

1) The mother board states that it can not do SLI but can it accommodate two 1080s? Should I just look at another MB?
2) Any other suggestions since it will be running 24x7?

Pretty sure the mobo can run 2 gtx 1080 , non sli, but the second pciex16 slot only runs , wired, at x4 bandwidth, instead of x16.    Much less performance on the second card.   How that effects folding I couldn’t say. Another member, DST4ME, used to fold for years but he hasn’t been around the last couple of months.

If you’re gonna run it hard 24/7, the Slate, being a closed box , might not be the best pick.   You want good airflow, if not having the video card on water.
