Nope. Bandwidth wise x4 3.0 = x8 2.0, but it still does not meet Nvidia requirement for x8. Maybe there is some hack, but officially that's impossible.

Oh ok, good to know. So what would that PCI-e slot be used for? I have the board and it says it can't be used unless you have an ivy CPU. I guess you could put a sound card or something it then?

Your reply=bad

Asrock was at one point the manufacturer of OEM boards for Asus but become their own company about a million years ago.

Asus boards are regarded by many enthusiast as very good boards, not to mention that it is probably the most popular brand of builders.


As for the original question, that Asrock extreme4 will be good for anything you really want to do with at, Asrock is well known for having quality boards in the at the budget price bracket.

I would still personally go with a gigabyte branded board this time around. They really knocked it out of the park on their z77 chipset boards. ROCK stable, incredible feature to price ratio. Excellent over-clockers all the good stuff.

UD5H gets lines for all three PCI-E from CPU (thats x16 in total). If put anything in it, the second pci-e slots drops to x4, thus making SLI impossible. UD3H gets x4 for third PCI-E from pcb; thus, does not affect second slot. You still cannot triple SLI on UD3H, but at least when you put something in third slot, you may still SLI (x8, x8).

So in summary the third PCI-E in UD5H is really only for 3-way crossfire.

I strongly recommend not going with Biostar. I have had bad experiences with a Biostar motherboard. Although it may be somewhat overkill, if you want an amazingly powerful, durable, stable and future proof motherboard you should get the GIGABYTE z777 UD5H or UD3H.

If this is a recommendation, i second it. Seems perfect for what op is looking for, and he clearly stated he is not interested in SLI/Crossfire, and this board looks great.


Here's a review that contains most of the boards that have been talked about here, maybe it can help you make your choice.
