Thread Starter 
I want to use sli ( first and third slot ) but its must be running 8x8x or 16x8x
NOT 8x4x , pls advice board on lga 1150 or 1155

may be MSI GD65 Gaming z87 ?

hello,

Most boards wont use x4 unless your using three graphic cards. If just running 2 , it should at least x8 by x8,,,,The board you have posted looks like a really nice board , and I usually don't like the way msi boards look. I don't care for the Virtual MVP.

When you read up on the board you have selected on newegg, does state in one of the feedback post that its kind of tricky getting it into sli mode.

maybe some, but for most of the flagship motherboards they have, they go 8x8x8 like the;

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

It really depends on what money your willing to spend.

Almost any board that cost more than $100. It would help more if you've said what else you need.

You most definitely want to do lga 2011 if doing 3x sli, 1150 and 1155 will stretch down to 8x4x4 if going three way.

if you do plan on 1150 socket and still want to do 3x sli even if it does 8x4x4 then get an asus maximus extreme, msi, gigabyte or evga classified board (when they release)

but again, 3x sli on 1150 and 115 will drop down to 8x4x4, no way to avoid it really.
