How do you have more PCIe Devices than slots? The quadstellar case is great for this because you can use breakout cables. E.g. an x16 slot to 4x x4 slots, or even one of the 4x nvme adapters plus this type of cable
You can see a little broll of that.. but it's best left for part 2! :D

All those extra devices go in the extra "node" on top of the motherboard where the graphics card normally goes.

We will pre-order the 2950X as soon as we can. We haven't decided on buying a 2990WX yet -- just for testing we're not sure. Maybe we'll end up being able to borrow one but so far they are in short supply even for preview.
