2 X PCI-E slots Z77X-UP5 TH Sandy Bridge

I bought this motherboard because it has 3 PCI-E slots. I have a gtx680, 1 sas raid card, and a video capture card. When I received it, I found a little sticker on the last pci-e x4 slot that says "This PCIe x4 slot requires an Ivy Bridge (3rd Gen)CPU". Does that mean I can even use that last PCI slot since I have a 2600k chip? If so, that's a real bummer...

  1. Wait... I'm looking around and I can't seem to find any gigabyte motherboard that supports 3 PCIE (x16, x8, x4) without having an Ivy bridge cpu. Is this true?
