What's the best way to check voltage under load? And what stress test do you recomand to test? CPU-Z one is ok?

You can try to use CPU-Z by launching the stress test and then flipping to the first info tab where you can find voltages, but I find the app somewhat unresponsive when it's running the stress test, so it may or may not give good readings. Another option is to load the Gigabyte SIV software, which will allow you to monitor voltages independently of CPU-Z while running the CPU-Z stress test.

Is this build compatible with SLI?
What would I need to do to add a second GPU

Welcome to the Forum, SumNeuron!

Yes, you can use SLI in this build. Besides the second card, you would need an NV-Link bridge (not the HB SLI bridge that comes with the motherboard). Specifically, you need a 3-slot model, not a 4-slot model, and to match this build's current motherboard, you can go with the Gigabyte Aorus Bridge.
