Take a look at what's coming in a few months. I know, they'll be massively expensive for mining, but if PCIe 3.0 is backward compatible to 2.0 it could be slot heaven, up to seven (yes, 7!) on a couple of these boards.

If this post tickles your fancy or helped you make more bitcoin I'll gladly take a tip:

MSI BB Marshal motherboard already offers 8 PCIe slots. It costs $400 though.

That board is pure sex!
And, yes PCIe 3.0 IS backward compatible!

Dual 8-pin power...


I thought it was supposed to be quad channel memory!?!

Very nice.  I'm especially digging the SATA power connector if it's for the PCI-e rails.  So few boards offer that.  

Seems like these guys were built specifically for efficiently sucking the power right out of your wall and the green out of your wallet Wink

Ah shame, just the Gigabite UD7 has that connector..

Team Epic!
