  • Form Factor
    Extended ATX Form Factor 
    12 inch x 10.7 inch ( 30.5 cm x 27.2 cm )
  • Note
    1. 28-LANE CPUs can only support up to 3-Way SLI™/ 3-Way CrossFireX™
    2. The PCIE_X8_4 slot shares bandwidth with M.2 x 4. 
    40-LANE CPU: The PCIeX8_4 slot can only be used in x4 mode or lower when used simultaneously with the M.2 connector. If x8 mode is used, the two connectors will be mutually exclusive.
    28-LANE CPU: The PCIE_X8_4 slot will be disabled and the M.2 connector will always be enabled.
    3. The PCIE_X4_1 (gray) slot shares bandwidth with the PCIE_X1_1 slot, USB3_E910 and SATAExpress_E1 connector. When the PCIE_X4_1 slot is occupied by an X1 or X2 device, the SATAEXPRESS_E1 will be disabled. When the PCIE_X4_1 slot is occupied by X4 device, the SATAEXPRESS_E1, USB3_E910 ports, and the PCIE_X1_1 slot will be disabled. 
    4. Due to chipset behavior, the SATA6G_78, SATA6G_910 ports do not support IRST including RAID configuration.
    5. These functions will work depending on the CPU installed.
    6. These SATA ports share bandwidth with the PCIE_X4_1 slot, and when the PCIE_X4_1 slot is ocuupied, the SATA ports will be disabled. These SATA ports are for data hard drives only. ATAPI devices are not supported.
    7. 2 x USB2.0 port at mid-board shares with ROG extension (ROG_EXT) port.
    8. USB3_E910 ports at back panel will be disabled when the PCIE_X4_1 slot is occupied by an X4 bandwidth device.
    9. Extreme Mode capabilities, including V1, V2, DRAM and other voltage definitions, vary by chipset. Please refer to your motherboard manual for details.
    10. One 5.25″ drive bay is required for NORMAL Mode installation.
