Thread Starter 
can you place your graphics card in any pcie slot?
i have a maximus V formula and i was wondering if a can put my 1 gtx 680 in slot 1 & the second in slot 7??? and still have pcie 3.0 @8???
how do these slots function??
or do they have to be placed in the native slots as per manual for the cars to work???

I guess you could no harm in trying as it is a pcie slot smile.gif although I think it might be 8x rather than 16x speed as it is on some mobos will have to look that one up smile.gif
