    Looks like the speculation on the 5820K having less PCIe lanes was correct. 40 for the 5960X and 5930K. 28 for the 5820K.

    Holy ****gigabyte calm down we don't need 7 different motherboards LOL.

    All joking aside, I am interested in the Gaming and the SOC Force.

    Fixed, I guess that is how they get you to get the higher models if you want to run multiple GPUs.

    You can still run 3-way SLI with the 5820K. This really isn't a big deal. It's just going to be 8/8/8 for 3-way SLI or 8/8/8/4 for 4-way Crossfire. That's enough bandwidth considering it's PCIe 3.0. The only real negative here is that forums are going to be flooded by morons who don't understand why their cards aren't running at x16/x16.
