    Update:

    Well I changed Graphics card around, even installed my old ones, did a RMA and got a new extreme7 gen 3 was excited for about a hour.

    Same problem 3 cards in slots 1 4 6 and slot 4 goes dead when a card in slot 6. No 3way SLI!!!

    30 plus hours of a frustration of : uninstalling and reinstalling cards, ram, gpu, liquid cooling, for nothing, what a waste of time and frustration!

    Happy to say I fixed the problem, returned both Asrock Extreme7 Gen3s went with a different mobo and BAMMMM!!! all 3 cards are up and running on first boot up!!

    Thanks for the update.
    Glad to hear that your 3-way SLI works with the new motherboard.
    Which brand/model is your new motherboard? This will help others looking for a 3-way SLI setup.

    I went with ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z, that was my first choice but I read so many great reviews about the Extreme 7 that I figures it looks cool and its cheaper.

    For 3 way sli the Max IV has a very nice lay out, its easy to work with.

    I did not post my new board in my last post, did not want to disrespect anyone.
