ASRock Z68 Pro3 Motherboard


The ASRock Z68 Pro3 comes with one PCI Express x16 slot, three PCI Express x1 slots, and two standard PCI slots. The presence of only one PCI Express x16 slot makes this motherboard clearly targeted to the mainstream user.

If you install a dual-slot video card in the PCI Express x16 slot, you will “kill” one of the PCI Express x1 slots.

It is important to understand that Intel chipsets no longer support standard PCI slots, and the PCI slots are provided by an ASMedia ASM1083 bridge chip.
