I'll try this tonight. THANKS!!!! +rep

I am curious as to how high I can get my i7-3770K with H100. Maybe a list can be added to the first post by GoatEater or would a new thread be better?

OK the second Slot is only up to 8x either 3.0 or 2.0 or 1.1 depends on your video card only the first slot is able to run at 16x 3.0 or 2.0 or 1.1 again depends on the GPU I would say running a 7870 a 3.0 capable card at 8x 3.0 = 16x 2.0 no it would not get affected by bandwidth. Hope this helps smile.gif

So do you think this will cause poor game performance with the card? Should I try to move my H100 to the top of my case to unblock the top x16 slot?

You can if you want, but I doubt you would notice any real-world difference.  The 7870 definitely doesn't need the pci-e 3.0 spec it runs at, and probably makes little to no difference 8x vs 16x.  If you do decide to move it, you should run benches before and after just to see the difference.

Great idea regarding benchmarks before and after!

It looks like there might be some slight modding involved to move the H100 to the top of the case. Not the end of the world, just a bit more difficult.

What benchmarks would you recommend? 3DMark 11 & ?

I would do a couple runs of 3dmark 11 / Heaven 3.0 bench, and maybe your favorite game based benchmark. 

 

I don't know exactly how your case is configured, but if you didn't feel like modding, and just wanted to get into testing, you could probably lay it on its side, and just have the radiator hang out the side onto something supporting it.  Then try the cards in the different slots.  xD  sounds like a bit of work, but probably less than taking everything out of your case, and getting out the dremel.

Here is a pic of my set up. I like the idea of pulling out the H100, so I can run tests in both slots!

What is "game based benchmark"? Sorry I am clueless....
