I did some research, some people is reporting, that on X58 is NVME booting fine, even without that Clover /Duet workaround bootloaders.. There is only PCI-E gen 2 so max theoreticall speed is 2000 MB/s in reality people claims 1600 MB/s but its still big boost in comparision with on board Sata 3Gb/s, so it make more sense than Sata 6 Gb/s, if you already sacrifice one PCI-E slot.
Maybe, maybe we will even able to boot XP from NVME with it, Dietmar is working on X79 NVME XP boot and its very close to X58.

Otherwise X79. look more and more promising, i will test it, i already ordered some old machine with it, there are lots speed / features improvement in comparision with X58, manual components diagram looks same as for X58, so X79 sound card can work.. Only problem is only 1 PCI slot, dont know if there are PCI slots extenders for more slots and there would work for sound card, if yes it would be very nice..

I had to solve last major problem and it is make space for 2 dual slots gpus, because my Win98/DOS Radeon X800 is dual slot too, if not want some noisy one - 1 slot and how slots are occupied.. Second solution would be some 1 slot heating with some block above card or after card, but so far.. I didnt find any with right holes dimmensions - 53x23.


So i have to used 4x open PCI orange slot for some card and there is problem, designers not count with such setup so there is MB cooler in the way, i would have to cut piece of it, or replace it.. I dunno if there is only cover, or some heatpipe under it.. I would have to remove MB and do the job. It would need small cut, i cut also that PCI-E gpu holding lock which is longer that slot, or long cut if i will not want what mutilate the card.

There is also almost same Gigabyte MB (GA-EX58-UD4), with different smaller heatink, which doesnt have such problem..

Other problem is some metal cuttter, i bought Dremel 3000 tool for it, but that included metal cutting disc is very bad, i tried to cut some videocard output and it the middle blade was done, i would need other some batter blade - recommendation welcomed.. Or i would have use some metal hand saw..

I already have some Geforce 960 for testing, Geforce 980 TI on the way (too noisy for final solution but for testing fine), i should have target 970, but i ordered some used 1070, to have some 970 spared from other rig, but i send money to some trickster.. and now waiting if police will solve it or.

Otherwise 1 slot water cooling block for 1 or 2 cards, is still solution but i want would rather to bypass it at least for now.

I got GA-EX58-UD4P as backup - i didnt monitor temperatures on OS level, overclock etc.. from touchpach even without 3D, just hour of using in OS, heatsinks are quite hot, so it make for this platform use these big heatsink which some MBs have.
Im still preparing for that cutting heatsink with my main board, but i worst case scenarion i will use heatinks from this MB on main one.

I bough it with some Engineering some Core i7, dunno if it is because is Core 7 or ES, but with it is possible setup Memory speed regardless of BLCK.. what is nice, but its not any victory because this Core i7 960 is much slower that my present Xeon..
