P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 - Which PCIe slot for x16?

I have a GTX980Ti but I'm not certain which PCIe slot it should be housed in for the best performance. The User Manual and what is printed on the P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 motherboard appear to contradict each other.

The BIOS Version 3802 I flashed after updating the OS from 8.1 to Windows X.

I'm currently using the 980Ti in the Blue Slot (2) as this is the only slot shown supporting PCIe 3.0 x16_1 if using 1 GPU card. There are, however, a lot of references to the Black slot (7) yet that is only marked PCIe 2.0 x16.

I have a 2500K CPU and the OS is Windows X .

It appears ASUS has shamefully abandoned Windows 10 support with this Motherboard. I would like all the features I purchased this board for to still be working with the latest Windows OS.

Thanks for your advice if an answer is forthcoming.

The first slot is all you need. If you go sli it will drop to 8X. Windows 10 works fine for me on my P8Z68 Deluxe gen 1 and even figured out how to boot from an Intel 750 nvme drive!

Thanks. Sorry, which colour or PCI slot number (from the uploaded pic) is your "first slot"?

The top slot is always the 'first' one. In this case, it's slot #2 as seen on that page in the manual.

Thanks all. I thought I had the right slot but wasn't 100%.

I have a good question. Can someone upgrade the BIOS on my P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3 for me since I'm not that good at it?

I would like to be able to switch on PCIE 3.0 or Gen 3 and Asus stopped supporting me here with this board so they won't update the BIOS to give me the option to click in on manually like some of the more popular models of this board, the Premium.

I would greatly appreciate any help with this one seriously.

Everything in my signature is current hardware wise if curious.

you wont have real pci-e3 support until you have a cpu that supports pci-e3. you need at least ivy bridge.

Even if you had an Ivy Bridge CPU, there is no need to be good at it. I don't think such a thing even exists. You just follow the instructions in the manual. I mean, it's really that easy.

 

Also, no one will be able to do it for you. All we would ever be able to do is, give you instructions to follow. So, you may as well just go by the manual's instructions.

I have an i7 2700k. I just need someone with the skill set to mod a bios for this thing for me to update the code so i can have the option to enable gen 3 like the premium has the option of doing. Mine is the deluxe and the option is not in my bios at all. That or someone get me an updated uefi module inserted into this bios and I think that has the option to enable gen 3 or force it rather I should say, via the options.
