Default Is this picture a fake? (Multiple Graphics Card Attachments)

I found this picture in a blog site I regularly visit... I posted the picture in another forum and this user claims that it's a fake, now I don't have a way of disproving his claim given I hardly know anything about computers as it is. Does anybody know if this picture is legit given what you observe in it?

[the users response as quoted:
"uhhhh those are regular motherboards. look at the Original image.... theyre placed over the i/o ports where the backplate is. Thats a fake." ]

that looks the shit!!

looks real, btw here see the dust or the mark on the red circle, it's on 1 but not the other


Defo not photoshopped and the blue ports of the graphics card are each plugged into the mobo and g'card
this is most likely a special motherbored designed for this


O and what would you know:
NewEgg sells motherbored with 5x pci express ports haha rofl

the thing that makes me laugh is the fact he said i/o port are in the way, well dipstick (not you), the metal frame that the g'cards are attached to is made specific for things like these, you can see how far of a distance the g'cards are above the motherbored, I could easy fit half a pint sized glass under it

the I/O ports also are not in the way as the last graphics card stops on-line with it
