Hi,

I wanted to get in to mining and was wondering if my MB Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 gen 3 is compatible with 6x GPU?

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z68%20Extreme3%20Gen3/index.asp

I have 2500K and 850W power supply. Maybe I can use 6x GTX 1060 with it if MB is compatible. Will only have to buy GPUs to start mining if everything else is good enough.

thanks

I only see 4 physical ports on the motherboard that are compatible. Those other two are regular old PCI and wont work at all.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Thanks for the answer, just looked up MB specs.

"Slots
- 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots (PCIE2/PCIE4: single at x16 (PCIE2) / x8 (PCIE4), or dual at x8 (PCIE2) / x8 (PCIE4))
- 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots
- 2 x PCI slots
- Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™
- Supports NVIDIA® Quad SLI™ and SLI™

*PCIe Gen3 is supported on 3rd Generation of Intel® Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 CPUs."


So 2x PCI 2.0 and 2x PCI 3.0 will work but not old 2x PCI slots? Maybe I can start with 4x AMD quad or Nvidia Quad SLI.

Also I have 2500K and it says to use PCI express 3.0 I need 3rd gen intel processor. Is PCI 2.0 good enough?
