ASROCK H81 PRO BTC no longer sold - alternatives?

It seems the ASROCK H81 Pro BTC motherboard is no longer being sold (no more sellers in UK although several a few weeks ago)- can anyone recommend a good alternative? It would need to have 6 PCEI slots.

UPDATE: I mean the “Pro BTC R2.0” version.

ASROCK H81 Pro BTC R2.0 ?? :wink:

MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Up to 7 GPU

BIOSTAR TB85 LGA 1150 Intel B85 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Motherboards - Intel

I agree on the Biostar TB85. I’ve had to mess with the BIOS too much on the MSI Z97 Gaming 5.

The Biostar just works. And it costs less.

try MSI mother cards they are ok for me

On Gaming 5 you just have to change on Gen 2 and 96 Latency.


OK, just made that change on my 7 MSI mining rigs. Wow, what a difference! I thoughts I had bad risers, but all I needed to do was make a BIOS change.

No more daily rebooting due to a card dropping off.

Bought Asrock fm2a88x+ btc from ebay, really cheap and fast shipping from Germany.

Currently running 4 cards there now, think it’s max 5 GPU.

Happy mining ! :slight_smile: I have 3 rigs on Gaming 5 running without any issue.
