I don't get it. The Maximus does have 2 PCIe 3.0 slots. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


It has 2 PCI-E slots and you can use it for SLI/ Crossfire, but with 2-slot cards there wouldn't be enough space between them.

I'm using Maximus IV Gene-Z Gen3 and it's a great board, has lots of great and exclusive features for it's price, only complain would be limited RAM overclocking, but i think this comes with all Z68 boards.
