Your motherboard says it will run 3 cards at X16.

Since your chip is at the top of the 1155-socket food chain, it should not preclude you from getting the 3 cards @ X16 advertised by the board.

Looking at the spacing on the slots, cooling could be an issue, but you have probably already considered that.

Microstuttering only happens with 2 or more GPU's.

Yeah,i know but i want the best performance.But really can somone answer can i use a 3770K with 3 GTX 680 at 16x or a 3930K with 3 GTX680?

PD:I want to know if i can use 3GTX680 with 3930K because on ark.intel page says that it supports 10 PCIe Lanes but it only have support PCIe 2.0

PCIe 3.0 is not really relevent. The 3930K is serious overkill though, You would get solid framerates on 2 680's with the 3770k across your 3 monitors, a 3rd would be overkill but would sure as sh!t give what you want.

If this is an "epeen" build which it sounds like then the 3930K i suppose adds maybe 2 inches to your weapon

The Intel® Core™ i7-3770K will support up to a total of 24 lanes of PCI-E 3.0. Normally the main slot will stay at 16x and the second will run at 8x but it is possible to that the board might run up to 3 at 8x but you need to check the board.

The Intel Core i7-3930K can support up to a total of 40 lands of PCI-E 3.0 with a board that supports that number of slots. The Asus P9X79 can do 3 (at 16x, 16x and 8x).
