Moving onto the board itself, there's nothing much that we didn't really already tell you in our original preview. With that said, we couldn't tell you the PCIe x16 setup at that time. We've got a total of three PCIe x16 slots and if you go for a two card SLI or CrossFire setup, both will run at x16. The bottom most slot while also a x16 one, only runs at x8 like other X79 boards we've looked at.
