    Hello, I am trying to find a micro-atx motherboard that has all four slots as pci-e. The board also needs to have socket AM3. I seen somewhere an lga1156 (or something) that had all four, but I haven't found a non oem am3 yet. Any info would be appreciated. :D

    Does not exist that I am aware of. Closest you will get is 3 slots, on Z77 mATX boards.

    Thanks for the response. :) They are a pain to find, but they are out there somewhere as shown here: http://vr-zone.com/articles/evga-p67-micro-atx-board/10737.html

    And from my searching, I found out that a couple of HP's oem boards have what I am looking for (with an additional mini pci-e to boot! :D). But that is oem and not only hard to find a good price on, but I am afraid that I would be losing out on performance somewhere.

    In AM3? Sounds like an Intel board. Do let me know if you find one though, still good info for sure. getting 4x GTX670 in singleslot on Matx would be hilarious.

    If you do find one; what's the planned use? Also link me when you do.
    Law-II and Norton say thanks.

    Well I am setting up a media server/router (after one too many bad routers, I decided to go a better route). It's partially because I would like to use all the slots up and mostly because of the cards I have on hand: all pci-e.

    @JrRacinFan: tv tuner cards and a quad port network card so I can turn it into a media server/router. :D

    @Fatal1ty39: Thanks for the link, I actually bought a HP oem board a few hours ago to test out. It was being sold real cheap as 'broken' so I am taking a gamble. :)

    So if anyone else knows of any, I would still like to hear about them. :D
