X58 Motherboard Finder

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all been a while,

I'm currently in the market for a newer motherboard as it's the part of my system that's bottlenecking me.

Current motherboard is the ASUS RAMPAGE III Extreme. I'm looking to do a Raid 0 of two SSD's and all i have is the lame Marvell sata 6gb/s controllers and the intel 3gb/s. Also on that note i Have a 7970 running at 2.0 because again the motherboard doesn't support 3.0.

TL/DR:

What i'm trying to find is a motherboard that fully supports Sata 6gb and Pci-e 3.0 that will work with my i7-970.

Thanks in advance and for any information that will point me in the right direction. thumb.gif

Doesnt exist. PCI-E 3.0 didnt become implemented until recently (as in, ivy bridge recently), and as far as i know all x58 boards used the ICH10R southbridge, which is sata II only, with sata III being provided through third party solutions.

Basically, you want those nifty features? Get a better system.
