Native USB 3.0 only. PCIe 3.0 controller is on the CPU, not on the chipset.

Chipset (Z77) is still supplying PCIe 2.0 lanes. doh.gif

Skylake or Skymont for me, can't very well jump aboard every new product with reckless abandon - Ivy will only get a shout if i get a contract to build a rig for someone else - won't be making one for my own benefit

no lol that with what relex99 said, i said they put it there because it is more optimal for signaling and the such. you see some cheaper boards and they have it moved down right below the CPU. When the power numbers started increasing though they moved it further up. Motherboards are all about signaling sn integrity of signals, certain things cannot be far away from each other. That is why you see USB 3.0 chips close to the ports. it would cause way too much interference if it was further away with that much power running through the PCB with that 8-pin.

Also it is odd i talk to some guys with ES Ivy and they say that their CPU wont work in most Z68 boards they had.

The ones we see on cheap boards, and even on this motherboard have enough mass to hold the 6W and dissipate it without any airflow other than the ambient air. They tend use radiation as their method of heat dissipation.

I'm also fairly sure Intel even ran a P67 without a heatsink but with forced airflow over the chip.
