Some time before i heard that pcie 3.0 x8 is equal to pcie2.0 x16 nd the required to run a 660 ti is the same so i was wondering can i use a splitter to use 2 660ti in sli in one 3.0 x16 slot . already got a feeling that it wont work cause of the sli support in motherboard.

If your motherboard does not support SLI, SLI will not work. Also, SLI 660 Tis is a terrible idea lol. SLI in general is a poor idea. Some games don't even support it, and there's a possibility you'll get worse frame rates than one GPU. Some games support it but you still won't see and increase. And other that support it will have varying degrees of increases in frame rates.

 

You are much better off selling your 660 Ti and buying a newer, better GPU.

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

It will not work. The slot itself requires the functionality of being split to accept data from more than one device. I cannot recall what the function is called but you'll mostly only find it on particular server motherboards.
