Am I missing something? B250 only offers 12 PCIe lanes, so wouldn't it be ridiculously more efficient to run this design on an h270 chipset?

In any case, this is just getting ridiculous, haha

If I had to venture a guess, they are wiring some of the slots into the CPU direct, then others to the chipset. As bandwidth is not important as such for mining, probably just delivery bare minimum to each slot.
