What are my LGA 1150 options left for Tri-SLI?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Welp, bent a pin on my Gigabyte G1 z97 board and now my ram slots don't work. Hoping and praying Gigabyte support will help me out.

In the mean time I need some back up options. I see Newegg has the ROG Maximus VI in Open Box. Does anyone have a link to anything still in stock and preferably New condition that supports Tri-SLI? I really don't want to switch CPU's because this one works pefectly fine. Z97 or Z87 variant will be okay. Z97 was a waste unless you use m.2 no other reason to have it.

Thanks~~~

Then looks like your only choice is to RMA it, they may charge you to fix it or fix it / replace it for you free of charge.

Some info on M.2 slots:
M.2 on Z97 can only run at PCIE 2.0 x4 lane speed speed which has 2 GB/s bandwidth.

Z170 on the other hand for m.2 runs on a faster PCI-E lane speed of PCIE 3.0 x4 which has a 4 GB/s bandwidth.
