Manufacturers are still making Mining Motherboards :
http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/biostar-tb250-btc-motherboard-has-a-focus-on-bitcoin-mining.html
http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=865
People all over the world (especially in China) please let us know when you start seeing these in supply.


Also, a lot of people have suggested the Biostar TB85 board as an alternative to the ASrock H81 boards.
Here's some Juicy tidbit of information about the TB85 - it was supposed to have an 8 PCIe slot varient as well.
Here's a screenshot from the Biostar TB85 Manual :

PS: this is from another forum where someone else spotted this.

Again, I look to our Eastern brethren to help us confirm these exist? A low cost 8 slot motherboard would be AWESOME.

in the meantime  this one is on sale


https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138424&cm_re=biostar_b150-_-13-138-424-_-Product


70 bucks before the code below



022BW44



35 bucks  it will do 4 cards

that allows for a small psu

you can use the g4400 cpu

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6KX4BD2910&cm_re=intel_g4400-_-19-117-625-_-Product

or a used g4400t less power

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Pentium-G4400T-2-90Ghz-SR2HQ-LGA-1151-Socket-X626B529-Processor-/262837490473?hash=item3d3255d329:g:WpgAAOSwUKxYjPLK



so 35 + 52 = 87 for four cards

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I just ordered this Biostar TB250-BTC from my local supplier.  Supplier says it will arrive this Friday.  I'm near China, but not in China.
Hopefully it would work with 6 GPUs.

Thank you for sharing that, keep us posted. Also share what price you get it at.


Deadsix...

No, sadly, im still waiting on other people to confirm if it is indeed possible, I have been running my two boards with 4 cards each riser free just like Phil.
I do however remember someone sharing that they got 7 cards working on the MSI Z170 Krait3X. Here is the thread :

I have done a mistake presuming that a 7 PCI-E board would take 6 GPUs and got the MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING 3X  Angry along with G3930 CPU and 2X4GB HyperX DDR4.

Please advice what board should I get to still be able to use the RAM and CPU with 6 RX470s.

Why on earth someone would build a 7 slot PCI-E board which cannot run more than 3 at a time  Huh

Thanks

Update bios to last version. Enable in bios "4G Decoding" and you'll run all 7 GPUs on this mobo

Sir, thanks for sharing. Confirmed working Grin

If you are in Hong Kong, can you let me know where you ordered it from? Would like to grab one too, if the price is right.

I just received the Biostar TB250-BTC board + Intel G4560.   Installed 6 RX470 GPU on it, and it works fine!
It's about 10-15W lower than the Asrock H81 Pro BTC + Intel G1840 I swapped out.

It's about USD 83 here.

That's great news man, now I wish Biostar will start shipping it outside China.
Btw, if you ordered it online, could you please share a link?

Where did you order it please? I'm in Japan and wouldn't mind shipping cost from nearby China...

I just spoke to the supplier (located in Hong Kong) in person, he's open to accept orders from overseas.
You may contact him via his facebook page:

i heart that user needs to also configure his/her software(operating system&drivers) for using more than 4+ card at windows 10.
is that right ?

Not on these mining boards, these are pretty much plug and play.

might be a crazy question, the M.2 ssd slot. would that affect 6 gpu setup? I want to know if it works fine on this board but also any other one. M.2 vs SSD for mining, which is better. i was thinking less cables more air flow.. thanks
