But I rather have 1 powerful gpu than plug 3-4 and no additional pci-e cards.
I need this for 3D rendering. Right now I'm rocking 6x GTX580 on old MSI LGA1155 board with Core i5 2500k but I'm looking for X99 upgrade for Pascal/Polaris arrival as things are getting really interesting.

For CUDA or OpenCL rendering it doesn't matter - they all could run at X1 and it would be fine. It's just that scubadiver59 couldn't get system to post past 5th GPU. Also you don't need single slots - you can just use PCI-E Risers. As a matter of fact my 580s are running at X1/X4 right now - the only difference between X8 or X16 is that scene for rendering is loading few seconds longer into VRAM - after that they process it with full speed.Edited by ziCk - 2/26/16 at 7:28am
