Have you got this to work? I have a similar Mobo, ASUS P8Z68-v LX and I can only get 2 of 4 cards running - the only work when connected, by risers, to the x16 slots. I can't get Windows or CGminer to pick up the extra cards connected to the x1 slots .

I read all over the internet that XFX is not as good as Saphirre and Asus.Better go wtih Saphirre 7970,it will give you above 700Khs.
