I bought a second Zotac 970 to SLi with my existing Zotac 970 but the bridge i not detected. I contact Zotac and after answering a dozen questions and providing proof of purchase my RMA is approved. That was 2 weeks ago and still no RMA information. They contact me every 3 days to let me know the info is coming but still. 2 weeks?! Just consider this before buying any Zotac hardware.

Thinking of getting this, would anyone foresee an issue with putting this onto an mATX board? I can save a fair amount of cash going for an mATX since I don't need the extra slots from an ATX.
