If it don't fit, force it? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I would use the Graphics card in the top PCIE slot if you can.

On my Crosshair IV motherboard, using my GTX480 on the slot above the last PCIE slot, i lost some 3DMark11 benchmark points, around 400, may not seem much, but it shows how much of an impact by using it on the Bottom X16 slot, to the top X16 slot

I'ts just how that motherboard was manufactured - It reads the First PCI-E Slot first, then second, third, etc. until it finds the GPU.

What I'm saying is....

Using my Graphics Card on the bottom X16 slot, to the top main X16 slot, which is the first PCIE slot, lowered my 3DMark11 scores by around 400.

Maybe because the bottom X16 slot is linked to the Southbridge and not directly to the Northbridge, which hinders the performance.

So I thought I should spread this to the OP, and see if he notice's any improvement, that's if he can get it to fit of course.
