Just got an ATI 7970 video card which uses PCI Express 3.0
I'm running a P8Z68-V Gen3 mb.

I think its already enabled to use PCI-E 3.0 than 2.0, but you can check your BIOS settings.

Posting to request to join the club. smile.gif I have had a vanilla P8P67 B3 revision motherboard since mid-March 2011. smile.gif I did at one point have it OC'd to 4.5GHz however it has been at a calm 4.0GHz for a while now since I have not been gaming or folding very hardcore as of late.

Here's just a quick picture for reference. smile.gif

No it's ready to use PCI-E 3.0 but you need an Ivy Bridge processor to be able to use PCI-E 3.0.

"At the high end the results are not surprising. In our informal testing ahead of the 7970 launch we didn’t see any differences between PCIe 2 and PCIe 3 worth noting, and our formal testing backs this up. Under gaming there is absolutely no appreciable difference in performance between PCIe 3 x16 (16GB/sec) and PCIe 2 (8GB/sec). Nor was there any difference between PCIe 3 x8 (8GB/sec) and the other aforementioned bandwidth configurations.

Looking to join the club. I've got the P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3.

Does anyone know of a chipset waterblock for the deluxe board?

It is not going to do anything until you get an ivy bridge CPU..... Why are people even bothering testing it?mad.gif

Uhhh what matters is whether it saturates the 8gb/s bus, no? is the ivy bridge REALLY going to unlock so much GPU speed that it goes from not being able to saturate the 8gb/s bandwidth to being able to? I dont think so. Maybe a 7990 dual chip.

Either way, of course the ivy is needed to unlock the actual PCI-e 3.0 function, but its not even necessary - yet.

And it's not going to make any statistically significant difference with an Ivy Bridge CPU either.
