seeking MoBo to run 3 controllers PCIe (gen3) at 16x, 8x, 8x without bandwidth limitation

I need to build a graphics Workstation with one professional graphics controller (PCIe 16x) and 2 LSI MegaRAID 8i controllers (both at PCIe 8x) installed.


Sorry, I neglected to add that this Graphics-Workstation (Windows7-64) is used for Video editing.
This means: large files (sometimes several) are read from any of the 2 LSI MeagRAIDs while (often at the same time) Video-sequences are cut, pasted, rendered etc.

Chipsets are X79, Z87. Any other suggestion?
Specific suggestions for Mobo ?


I find it hard to find a suitable motherboard that supports the PCIe (gen3) bandwidth without limitations.

Which Motherboard(s) would conform (or best meet) to the setup described?

Your advice is highly appreciated.

  1. you will not saturate pci-e 3.0

    but there are some socket 2011 boards that will, you need a plx chip on it to increase your lane count.
