Yep. My previous mb was for mining. I did not know when I bought it used. I used it for 3 more years. It was fine when I sold it.

Outside of having weird slots, it's still a motherboard.

I can't imagine most people would need 7 PCI-E slots.

That said, the deep discount sales on mining hardware are largely past... if you can find one at a good price, good on you.
My 1080ti can still pull in USD $16/month, after electricity cost :)

I got into mining when the 1080ti was going for nearly $1300/ea :(
On the bright side, I can build 3 top of the line gaming computers with two SLI 1080ti per rig.
