It suports 4-card SLI… Not just 3…
4 sata2, 6 sata3. Not the other way around…
Tha last expansion slot (1 x PCIe 3.0) isnt correct… The x8 and x16 slots are all gen 3.0 PCIe slots.
It also has 2 internal 8 pin power connectors.
NO IDE connector!
It does have a IEEE1394 connector inside (FireWire)
Who made this….?
