Can anyone confirm whether dual GPUs would run in x8/x8 or x16/x4?

I'm finding both listed on spec sheets for the mobo, even on different parts of EVGA's own site:
http://www.evga.com/articles/00502/le/
http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...board%20Family

In addition, how likely would I be able to hit 4.0 GHz with an i5 750 and a Mugen 2 on the P55 LE? I'm having trouble finding helpful information on the P55 LE regarding overclocking.

Also, are there any other benefits of picking the FTW over the LE besides overclocking? I'm planning on buying either the P55 LE or the P55 FTW, and there's a $50 price difference between the two; I'm having trouble deciding.

I had the FTW and it was pretty sick in the overclocking department

What about this one?

This is not true. As long as you have 2+ pci-e 2.0 slots you can run crossfire. SLI however needs to be stated on the motherboard.

And theoretically, 16x/4x is the same as 8x/8x

The pdf here says that the P55 LE does support Crossfire, just not SLI.

I'm just considering the P55 LE and the FTW 'cause of the crazy TD prices after BCB and rebate. ($148.5 FTW/ 96.75 LE)

Did not know that.
