...not really.

I am hoping someone or some people here can help me. I am desperate.

I am looking for a motherboard that meets the following requirements:
- Intel LGA 1366
- 6 (physical) GPU Support (I need to run 6x 5830's) not just 6 PCIe Slots (I already have a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R 6 slot board that only runs 5 GPUs)
- Windows 7 x64 friendly.
- No Mods, pin 'jump-er-ing' etc.......(although I WILL be running powered PCIe Risers to protect the motherboard).

Does this exist ?

I am willing to go to another socket if I absolutely HAVE to...but would prefer LGA1366.

I would like to purchase a few if possible and further consolidate things around here, less rigs/more cards.....

Thanks in advance,
bitlane.

Hmm. Well, I still have my ASUS P6T7 WS available, not sure how much you were planning on spending. It is 1366 socket with 7 x16 slots.

It has a Koolance waterblock on it, but I still have the original heatsink.

Those are awesome...
Have either of you guys more than 5 physical GPUs IN WINDOWS on either of the boards linked to or shown ?
I am praying that I can find someone with 100% first-hand experience, so that I don't end up with another board that although may have more than 5 PCIe slots, will not support more than 5 physical cards such as my Gigabyte X58A-UD3R that I currently have.....

As I said in the OP, I would really like to run 6x 5830's in a single board/system using Windows 7 x64.

Those choices, even though priced a bit higher than expected, are still attractive to me due to my end goal of consolidation.

rjk - what are you asking for your P6T7 WS ? I would really only want the OEM heatsink setup if possible, as I have no water cooling gear....

Thanks for the replies.
If anyone else has any suggestions, I am all ears (or, EYES as it were in this situation....LOL).

Unfortunately, the largest number of cards that I ran at once on it was 3 5870s. I would test it with more cards, but I already sold the CPU from it, so I can't test it Sad

The waterblock would be almost impossible to sell by itself, so I was hoping to sell both together for around 52 BTC shipped.

Does the waterblock fit any other P6T's ? or just the WS ?

It only fits the P6T7 WS, as far as I know. http://www.koolance.com/product_archive/product_info.php?product_id=1018
