5 PCI-e slots, but this board will still likely require you to use a PCI-e extender.

MSI 790FX-GD70 supports 4x dual-slot cards.

Remember to use a case with 8 expansion slots, if you're putting it into a case.

Why would you need extenders?

If you are going to be getting extenders anyway you don't really need to get double spaced x16 slot motherboards. You can get much cheaper motherboards with 5  cramped together x16 and x1 slots, and just use extenders to space them out.

Because there's literally 1mm space between the cards.

I guess you guys need to invest in some water cooling! It's a one time purchase, that will last many builds. Even after you're done mining. You'd probably get more MH/s too!
