Before I experiment, can anyone provide some guidance on whether it is better to run two GTX-1070s independently or connect them via SLI. I suspect separate is better.

Thanks for any and all input.

They work great if you are a gamer but can cause problems if you just crunching. Boinc is not setup to use gpu's in tandem, it is still in it's infancy in using multiple cpu cores for a single work unit.

Thanks,

That's what I thought.
