1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode) *3
1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 *3
Quote:
3. The PCIE_X4_1 (gray) slot shares bandwidth with the PCIE_X1_1 slot, USB3_E910 and SATAExpress_E1 connector. When the PCIE_X4_1 slot is occupied by an X1 or X2 device, the SATAEXPRESS_E1 will be disabled. When the PCIE_X4_1 slot is occupied by X4 device, the SATAEXPRESS_E1, USB3_E910 ports, and the PCIE_X1_1 slot will be disabled.
So while I could restrict my 10gigE NIC to PCIe x2, it'd gimp performance. Although maybe PCIe x2 is enough for a single 10gigE link?

Also, the other reason for considering the EVGA boards is they're available on Amazon and Newegg with shipping to Australia and didn't seem too bad price wise last time I checked.

hmmm..

the asus X99-deluxe.. fulfills your requirements.. but the slot spacing isn't ideal...

obviously the Asus workstation boards should work..

Unfortunately the only WS boards ASUS made come with PLX chips which bumps up the price... for example:
https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/X99E_WS/
or
https://www.asus.com/au/Motherboards/X99-E-10G-WS/

I really wish they had an X99 equivalent to the P9X79 WS as that board has a perfect slot layout for my uses.

I suppose I could get away with using risers with the X99 Deluxe... I've used risers before and they work fine, even with up to 4 GPUs in SLI so it's definitely an option

Right right right, starting to get a better picture of this now, and I can see where you're coming from in terms of your requirements.

Good luck with that

My requirements aren't that bad

Like I said, X99 Classified or X99 FTW K would be great without breaking the bank ($320 for the FTW K, $473 for the Classy). Plus the 6850K has now dropped due to X299 and Ryzen.

Anyway... maybe when X299 & Threadripper come out I'll be able to grab a bargain on the forum

The 6850K is currently 535 including postage until tonight on eBay computer alliance ...

Very few people went broadwell EP ... Given the ridiculous pricing ... And minimal speed increase over haswell EP ... Do I don't think there will be a flood of secondhand CPUs ... Plus skylake and kabylake were so much better at gaming ...

I think the broadwell EP stuff will be as rare as the ivybridge EP CPUs are at the moment...

Also I think... COUNT20 on eBay will get you $20 off that price until 22/6

Edit: just checked, for me it's still $649 and it's a 6850K, for a second there I thought I was going to be buying to some widely unknown 8-core or 10-core chip to replace my 5930K
