M3E crossfire help
Hi... Just pick up a new M3E.
I can not find for the life of me which pcie slots I install the video cards for two card crossfire. Also it does it tell me which is the preferred slot for single card use.
I hope someone can help.

That is the R3E board. X58 is different to P55.

I don't it's very difficult if you really have this board to verify. Use GPU-Z then look at the PCIe lanes assigned to the card.

It's easy to remove the card and put it in another PCIe slot.
