[Solved] 3 GTX 285 GPU holding Motherboards

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a motherboard that can hold three GeForce GTX 285 GPUs.

I have a motherboard DFI LP UT X58-T3eH8 LGA 1366 Intel X58 that reportedly has three 3 x PCI Express (Gen 2) x16 slots. However, while it has the slots, you can not make three 285s fit onto the board.

While it could probably hold three single width cards, it can not hold three double width cards.

Does anyone know of a motherboard that can hold three double width PCI Express (Gen 2) x16 GPUs?

Thanks...

    I found an answer.

    ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme Skt 2011 MoBo Intel 2nd Gen Core i7 PCIe 3.0 SLI DDR3 X79

    This motherboard will hold four (4) double wide GPUs. It's an Extended ATX motherboard, which would require a Case capable of holding an Extended ATX motherboard.
