    No you can't.

    If you're trying to get in on the mining Gravy then you can only install 5 cards at the most. I've seen companies try to make doublers for the PCI-Express x16 slots but these usually end up damaging the motherboard. 

    You might be able to run 5 cards on a PCI-Express x1 riser card, and run the display off integrated graphics. Gigabyte boards with the z68 chipset have a poor and buggy BIOS so you might run into problems.

    Pro Tip.... Never, Ever exchange, transfer, or sell Cryptocurrency with your mining rig. Always use a separate computer that's not being used for mining. Crypto thieves will try to manipulate a backdoor on the mining program. The best solution is to use the mining PC for mining only.

    While you have a lot of PCI-E slots available on that motherboard, you only have 2 PCI-E x16 slots, which is what a GPU uses. So while you have 6 slots, only 2 of them can be used with a GPU.

    we don't understand your question.  Gigabyte's website [under "support"] has a list of all known compatible cpus for that motherboard.  a series 6 cpu will NOT work -- too new and the mobo is too old
