Good Motherboard for crossfire Matrix Cards

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought 2 matrix platinums without thinking about the space they take up.
With my current MB (Asus z68 pro) the first PCIE lane is a small x1 lane which moves my card down and covers my 2 other large slots.
The only MB I have seen with a full size PCIe slot at top is a Asus Maximus MB and that is £300+ which is more than I wanted to spend. Can anyone recommend me a good MB with room for 2 3 slot cards?

I'm pretty sure I've seen people use 2x 3 slot cards on the P8Z68 Pro before. The first card will sit in the Blue PCI-E slot and the second card will sit in the White PCI-E slot. There will only be a small gap between them though.
