Hi.
I am planning to buy 2x Titan X cards and one Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe 1.92 TB SSD that runs on PCI-E 2.0 x8 interface together with some CPU that supports 40 PCI-E lanes. I am not sure which motherboard to choose, it will be both for work and gaming (maybe some OC but nothing too enthusiastic). I would prefer not to lose peformance because GPUs drop from X16 to x8 because too many taken PCI-E slots, and ofcourse all 3 components must fit :). Is rampage V extreme good choice?

Thank you.

It reports x16/x8/x8, not x16/x16/x8 so no, this board cannot do what you are planning even with a 40-lane CPU. I would need to check the X99 chipset specs to see if it can use this configuration even.

X99 E-WS and X99 deluxe seems to support X16/X16/X8 but i am not sure from specs if they support only Xeon processors or i7 too, because i was planning to put in a i7-5960x

Asus X99 Deluxe CPU support: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/X99-DELUXE.html
Asus X99E WS CPU support: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/X99-E_WS.html

Sorry, had to take out one of your duplicate postings. For your intentions, may be better to go with a server board, dual CPU.
