Then use cable to connect it to your M.2 slot

You'll need to get this also

Thanks,but Im not gonna use a SAS m.2 on this board. And I ordered a new hyper mini from a online retail shop here in norway.

@ scubadiver59

Hi,

have You test the follow?

-/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8 to run 6six cards?

It`s only an idea...

The first PCIE-slot work everytime as x16.

Perhaps It save resources (not use PCIe_1slot)... not PCIE-resources conflict??

I have an Asus X99e-ws usb 3.1.
I know (page 116 on my manual) usb 3.1 and sata_express share PCIE_2slot (especially partially disabled the PCIE_2slot).

Please not use such components for your tests (perhaps without m2_ssd, if use).

But I rather have 1 powerful gpu than plug 3-4 and no additional pci-e cards.

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.

Im actually writing from a 1155 board with i7-2600k.

Yeah some people did crazy builds like fitting PCI-E splitters to connect 2 GPUs into the same PCI-E slot. Anyway I was really hoping I could use this particular board and not Z10PE-8 (Dual Xeon board). I know that the other one works with all PCI-E slots populated with GPUs.

Try running 7 of those cards together. You wouldn't be able to SLI them all together but who'd care with that much power.

There is a lot of confusion about running 7 GPUs in a single motherboard with people claiming they were not successful with this. But here you can see that 7 GPUs can run in a single motherboard. Moreover it also tells where is the problem since initially the system was not running, and that explains why people were not able to run it. The problem lies in enabling "Above 4G decoding" in BIOS. To see why note that for each peripheral device there is a buffer created in RAM memory by BIOS during booting phase. The buffers are created in the lower part of 4GB system RAM which normally is more than enough. For GPU the buffer is quite big and if there are 7 GPUs they will not fit into the standard RAM allocation. Such possibility is taken into account by allowing memory allocations above 4GB but this has to be enabled in BIOS (hook for deeper knowledge about PCIE memory allocation).

Important note: The successful 7 GPU system above was made with Asus Z10PE-D8 WS dual Xeon motherboard. I do not see why it would not run with the Asus X-99 WS but the final proof would be to show it thumb.gif.

Note also some very basic technical issues with 7 GPUs: If one wants to put them directly into the motherboard one has to make a system of 7 watercooled single-slot GPUs. In some cases this may require removing the DVI port from the card which can be done. One has to remember that not all waterblocks with backplates will fit into the single-slot configuration, for example EKWB will not but the Aquacomputer ones will fit. Aquacomputer has suitable terminal for connecting 7 GPU waterblocks. After making such a 7 GPU waterblocks monster one has to consider how to release it from the PCIe sockets in case there is a need to take it out. The guy who made the system used short cards but with longer cards the PCIe locks will be hardly accessible.

The next level problem is how to install more than 7 GPUs using PCIe splitter smile.gif. Some applications are better when using the number of cards which is power-of-two and so 8 cards would be recommended. In principle the number of PCIe slots can be increased using splitters. There are passive splitters and active splitters but to work they generally require support of PCIe bifurcation in BIOS. However, it seems some simple splitters and splitter boxes apparently do not require this (?). Another unresolved issue confused.gif.

Theoretically, what you're asking should work. The two eSata ports on the back I/O are controlled by the asmedia controller 1061, while the sata express ports are controlled by 106SE

Full Board Block from Bitspower


Has anyone here seen this before?

Nice find! I took a look at the installation manual on the bitspower website, would love to have had more of a monoblock design, but it's nice to know there's still companies developing products for the board

I can happily say that my -E WS/3.1 mobo works really well now. no USB post problems like some have experiencing.
I havent witnessed any unstability either. my RAM didnt need to go through the memtest ok! button on mobo either and it was just plug and play without any problems.
I only have had the my pc up for a few days,but so far no problems.

I havent OC anything either so it seems to run smooth on my part atleast.
I will post back if I xperience any problems with this mobo.
