More about pcie intel core 3570k
  1. you would also need a pcie3 gpu. if you stick in a pcie2 gpu then it will switch to pcie2 speed.
  2. i was planning to buy it later so i will get pcie 3 or not
  3. 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (blue @ x16 mode)
    - 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot
    - 2 x PCI slots

    *PCIe Gen3 is supported on 3rd Generation of Intel® Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 CPUs.

    under the specification tab of the mb.
  4. i am planing for intel 3rd gen core i5 3570k so i will get pcie 3 and pcie full bandwith and this motherboard is good for my house and mid range gaming

    PCIe 3.0 show no speed increase in single GPU mode below 3 monitor set-up. Tomshardware ran test about that as several other website and even a 680gtx in 2560x1440p show no speed increase going from 2.0 to 3.0

    You need a 2-3-4 GPU set-up to see the difference.

    Sadly I can't find anymore the link I had where they tested single GPU then, 2sli,3sli and 4sli. PCIe 3.0 Realy seems to make a difference when you use more GPUs.
  6. it will become pcie 3.0 that the point so i can say to my friend it is pcie 3,0 . and this motherboard is good for me or not and the features of this motherboard are good for mid to high gaming.. please say that if i put intel core i5 3570k to this motherboard so i have to update the firmware where can i find it and i am planning to put 4 gb ram 460wtt of smps then i can play battlefield 3 in 720p resolution with igpu

  7. answer it please
  8. if you buy the mb from micro center or a local good computer store all they have to do is toss in a stick of ram and a test sandy bridge cpu and flash the bios for the new ib chips for you. if not when you order the mb make sure they send the mb with the newest bios already on it. most vendor put a bios lable on the mb or mb box to let a user know if the mb has the newest bios on it. if not you have to switch mb to an 7x mb. that has ib bios on it.
  9. please see the site http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H61MU3S3/?cat=Download&o=BIOS it says support 3rd gen so i have to download all the downloadable contain then it support all the function of mb and processors please answer it fast
  10. if i attach any other gpu then i can play game more smoothly the fps rate will increase or not please answer it

    You seem to be lost a bit here. You only want PCI-e 3.0 so you can tell your friends you have it? And then, you're going to run the internal graphics anyway?

    If you're planning a, "Mid to high end build" then I would not go with 4gb of ram, I would look into 16gb plus. Also, a H61 motherboard isn't remotely close to high end, Z77/Z79 or nothing else if it's a mid-highend gaming build.

    Gaming builds also have fast DDR5 based GPU's, I am falling for the 670 FTW, and would recommend it over all. What brand power supply do you have?
