    Any board that features an NF200 or Hydra bridge chip in it's specification.
    i.e.
    MSI P55A Fuzion and P55 Trinergy
    EVGA P55 Classified 200 (160-LF-E659-KR) and P55 FTW 200 (141-LF-E658-KR )
    Asus P7P55 WS SuperComputer
    Gigabyte P55A-UD7
    Asus Maximus III Extreme
    ECS P55H-AK

    There are probably others, but since tri-SLI is by definition an extreme enthusiast solution, most extreme enthusiasts are all ready well acquainted with virtually any aspect of top end componentry...so if you aren't...you're not.
    And you are aware that the GTX 570 (GTX 580 salvage part) and GTX 560 (full 384 shader GTX 460) both likely featuring higher clocks, better OC headroom and possibly better thermals are due for imminent release....along with a new Intel CPU/socket line intended to replace P55 ?

    Well, it would appear we've been there and done that too: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic155659.html#post952738

    It seems you insist on a board with more than 10 SATA ports as well.
