    Depends on what PCI-E switches you are talking about.

    If you are talking about the little toggle switches on the board, they disable/enable PCI-E slots as nickbaldwin86 explained.

    If you are asking in regards to my recent post, a PCI-E switch chip/or bridge chip, acts like a network switch. It takes the 16 PCI-E lanes provided by the CPU/Northbridge, and provides multiple x16 or x8 slots.
    Shihabyooo and erixx say thanks.

    This needs to become a new standard with motherboards as do 90° Sata , front panel and USB connections. It would do wonderful things for cable routing

    yes, but why manufactures do not go the whole route and only make small changes from year to year. In this case, why not make all USB, FW, Audio, COM, etc. ports 90 degrees?

    I know the answer, it must fit small cases.

    Good point but I don't think people will be putting a board like this in small cases

    Aesthetically it looks great but I wonder what they are going to do for the chipset heat sink?

    A set of bullets which look like lipstick?
    Oh no it's already done : /

    I wish EVGA would release a Classified version for the Z77 chipset. I have a good feeling people will completely forget about X79 once Ivy Bridge launches (The people that don't need 6 cores that is). But then again, Once Ivy Bridge-E launches, everyone will forget about plain jane Ivy Bridge. Still... gimmie a classified EVGA! I've been holding out for months on my next build, hoping some awesome but affordable boards come out for the 1155 IB.

    Never knew that ! Thx for the info !

    Didn't AiBs fix that in current cards ? If not that would be extremely stupid, looking how multi card systems are becoming more popular.


    Mine doesn't :(
    The R3E does though. Damn you Asus :banghead:
