So I'm thinking about getting an HAF X case and a new motherboard and I want the ability to mine with 3 cards at once.  There's lots of motherboards with 3 PCIe x16 slots, but they're usually in positions 1, 4, and 6 or alternately 1, 3, and 5 which doesn't leave an empty slot in between all the cards for cooling. 

I know that when I run two cards in positions 1 and 3 the card in position 1 doesn't have enough air flow and gets super hot, so I want this new motherboard to have space in between the cards. 

Can anybody recommend a motherboard like this, with 3 PCIe slots in positions 1, 4, and 7?  I saw a similar setup on the forums a while ago. 

Thanks!

MSI 890FXA-GD70.
I was trying to find cheaper alternatives, but the alternative can't be found anymore i think.

so i see 5 slots on that mobo.  could you insert 3 cards in slots 1,4 and 7, and then use PCI-e ribbon extenders to add a 4th and 5th card in an open architecture?

Yeah sure, i assumed the idea was to avoid risers. If you plan to use them, there are cheaper boards with 1 16x pcie and 4 1x pcie slots.

ASRock Extreme7 Gen3 v1.30 bios is for sandy or with v2.30+ Ivy cpus
 Only x16x16x16 bandwidth board for triple SLI I ever found, not needed for Bitcoin.

Try a old server on bay, some have 8x4x pcie for network cards with HUGE P/S
cheap.

Don't care how old the topic is.  I've just spent a few hours digging for a GD70 replacement.   Everything is $500+ especially with a CPU.
