Quick question: if I populate the x4 slot on the EX58-UD3R with a SATAIII controller, are the x16 slots going to run at full speed, or at x4, or x8?) (Using a flex extender cable and sticking the controller out of the way somewhere.)

According to the block diagram in the manual, the x4 and x16 slots are on the same bus.

I know x8 has been shown to have a minimal impact on GPU performance even with recent cards, but that seems like it wouldn't be true at x4.

I'm asking because I'd like to throw a pair of RAIDed SSDs in the box and the bandwidth of an x1 controller is barely sufficient for a single SATAIII SSD (tested, as I run my spinning drives on one already).

Currently I'm using a GTX 770 4GB, but I'm considering upgrading to a 980ti (SLI on this board seems like a terrible idea given the lack of spacing.) Either way, I don't want to handicap the GPU trying to be clever about faster storage.

(I like to game in 5760x1200 and tend to run out of GPU & VRAM before CPU. But will still probably grab a X5980 now that I'm aware I can.)

These guys have done some crazy stuff with PCIE SSDs

http://www.overclock.net/t/1461359/official-xeon-x5660-x58-review-discussion-and-xeon-l5639-benchmarks-inside/4500_100#post_24179289

best ask them.

As for SLI, you can use a PCIE extension cable to move one card over and mount it above another slot. This might cover something you need though.

I posted pics and a description... Somewhere in my history.

There's a lot of people using X56x0 chips in these boards.

I am using a 5650 @ 4GHz with SLI 970's and 12 GB of RAM in a UD7 V2. I like it.

I had a lot of trouble with win 8 but it's ok with win 10.
It had something to do with my R9 280x and the sound card inbuilt with that. I just disabled that one and it's ok now.

Where did you get your drivers for the fresh install? Or are you running the upgrade still? I notice several things don't work so well after the upgrade and several forums suggest doing a clean install.

My only problem is finding the windows 19 drivers for this board so if anyone can chime in and link me I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advanced!

I ran CPU Z which indicated tri-channel mode.

However, I ordered a new GTX 970. It gave the same issue, 100% CPU load so I removed some ram. It turned out the 8gb stick in the blue slot caused the problem.

So I now run 3 x 8GB ram in all white slots and the GTX 970 works 100% a-ok. I have 24gb vs 32gb now, but thats OK.

Thanks for your help, you were spot on the money with that one.

Afik no special drivers for windows 10 during my upgrade my eathernet drivers broke had to disable smart lan? In bios as windows would turn off the ethernetcards even when an cable is plugged it on fresh install Windows 10 should automatically dectect and install all drivers for this board otherwise use the win 7/8 for Ethernet and update from device manager find driver atomaticly. I'm still running on my upgrade but it was an retivaly fresh install before the upgrade.

Once agen on mobile so enjoy the wall of text smile.gif
