for sli you must run in slot 1 and 3 with the bottom slot optional for 3 way, but you cant run sli any other way, slot 1 and 3 must be used, then you can stick whatever else you want in the bottom slot

OK so then with something in the bottom slot, it will be running at x8/x8 though, right?

Ah OK thanks

And SLI will work like that? I thought it HAS to have equal lane speeds for SLI, like x16/x16 or x8/x8.

Got everything up and running, fresh reinstall of Win 7 and everything went smooth right thereafter.

UEFI Bios are awesome!

Sorry for the bad pics, didn't really take my time with my phone and the cable management is laughable.
