Maximus V Extreme PCI-e quistion....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I currently use a ASUS Maximus IV Extreme
The part that interests me is the PCI-e part on the card.
It has a lot of pci-e slots and what not.
So I got 2 GTX670's installed on it with Dwood's brackets on it. So they are kinda big wink.gif So i need to keep 2 PCIe slots empty between each card to fit them.
This leaves me only the lower x4 slot to put my Revodrive Hybrid (too fat to fit in a slot above a gfx card)
I just noticed this card does not work at full speed. I also found out that that slot has a x1 speed and only a x4 form.
Sux right?

My revodrive wont go faster then 350mbps. It should do at least 810.....

O well
I started looking for other motherboards and I came across the Maximus V Extreme. the big brother wink.gif
It has more space to put everything (cuz now the revodrive is pushing against the corsair coolerblock)
But what I need to know is if I put a gfx card on slot 1 and 3, will the last slot still be usable or will it automaticly be shut down?
Any M5E users that can comment on it?

The card setup, blue light in bottem is teh hybrid drive

A piece from the M5E manual where it says it gets shut down... No way to counter that?


thx in advance

Sam

I'm sure there is a way to do it with the IV......Try switching in BIOS from PCI-E 3.0 to PCI-E 2.0 and check.

Or you can look at this mobo
