I have tested the system using the method described above. All GTX580 cards have been removed from the system physically, each card has been tested separately, each slot has been tested separately, all cards were tested in bunches. Result is the same: as soon as the number of plugged cards becomes equal to eight the system jams.
I have done all these tests on a clean system (reinstalled Win7).
