P67a-GD65- Second PCI-E slot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a P67A-GD65
- I purchased it as faulty for about 10 pounds
- The Top PCI-E slot has been knocked off in shipping.
- So, I know that if you have two cards in there, they operate at x8/x8
- but if i put a gpu JUST in the second slot, will it run at x16 or x4?
thanks

It will run at 8x because I'm pretty sure that's all the second slot is wired for. Check to see how many gold teeth there are inside the slot. If the teeth go all the way to the end then it will run at t 16x otherwise 8x.

Either way you won't notice any performance difference.
