Chipset and Bus Details

The EVGA SR-X uses the Intel® C606 chipset. This chipset has native SATA 6G and SAS.

Only Xeon® E5 Class Socket 2011 CPUs are compatible. It IS NOT compatible with Core i5/Core i7 CPUs. Please visit our CPU Support Page for details.

The EVGA SR-X motherboard supports PCI-E 3.0 performance via a PLX PCI-E 3.0 certified bridge chip. This allows the SR-X to populate all PCI-E 3.0 slots at the maximum bandwidth possible. The PCI-E lane configuration is as follows:

  • 1 Card: x16
  • 2 Cards: x16 - x16
  • 3 Cards: x16 - x16 - x16
  • 4 Cards: x16 - x16 - x8 - x8


The EVGA SR-X is the ultimate motherboard for the performance user. We're talking dual CPU socket 2011 CPUs with support for up to 32 threads of CPU horse power, support for 1600MHz+ of DDR3 and graphics slot expansion for up to 4-Way SLI.

This makes the EVGA SR-X motherboard the ultimate platform for extreme gamers, power users, workstation, server admin, folder/cruncher, or just an extreme PC enthusiast.

Oh, and did we mention that this board also has full support for SATA 6G and USB 3.0? These latest technologies combined give you the ultimate high performance motherboard!


This motherboard is loaded. Native support for SATA 6G, SAS support that offers 8 additional SAS or SATA drives, USB 3.0, onboard Bluetooth and dual Intel Gigabit NICs. Of course this board gives you all the other features EVGA is known for, a robust CPU PWM, triple BIOS support, EZ Voltage read points and 100% POSCAP Capacitors.

In fact, the board is so feature packed that we literally created a new form factor for a beast of this kind, HPTX. Make sure to check the list of officially supported chassis.

The PCI-E layout is setup to give you the maximum bandwidth available with a large number of cards at full PCI-E 3.0 specs.

Step up to the next generation of intelligent performance with the next generation of Intel® Xeon® Processors. Based on a new Intel microarchitecture and Intel's leading-edge 32nm process technology, the latest Intel Xeon processors offer up to 80% more performance than previous generation processors. Get ready to experience multithreading performance for up to 16 threads per processor, meaning 32 threads per platform!
