Those are IDT chips that split x16 into 2x x8.

Basically, all those slots are PCI-E 1.0 x8 slots instead of dual x8/16 PCI-E 2.0.

The same chip is used on the R680.

This is the different between overclocker engineered mobo and non-overclocker engineered mobo

Hi everyone,
Might be an E-ATX board or close to it. Thermaltake new cases (like the Armor Plus) has been designed for 10 slot boards.
