SLI: One 580 in 2.0 PCI and other in 3.0 PCI?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Bought this board:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265

If I am air cooling and want to leave good space between the two 580's in SLI, could I place one in the 2.0 slot and one in the 3.0 slot without any performance loss?

Will that work?


Thanks in advanced!

Good thing about PCI-e cards is they are backward compatible, meaning you can use 2.0 PCI-e cards on PCI-e 3.0 slots with no problem.
ASRock make great boards congrats. I also have a gen3 ASRock board and i luv it.
