I might as well throw this here - I asked on several forums, even Nvidias, and never gotten as much as a GUESS as to why this happens.

As already stated in this thread, my GPU-order on this board is mixed up - I can confirm that this have happened to at least two other people with this board, and a Google search came up with a VAGUE sign that a handful of other users, with ASUS and GIGABYTE boards have this happening.

This happens with 3 or 4 GPUs (Have NOT tried it with 2).

This carries over with a fresh OS install (I gone from Windows 7 to 8 more than 20 times, at all times is the situation the same).

This happens with and without SLI board / SLI activated.

Basically my GPU-order is completely wrong.

From TOP to BOTTOM (When looking at the PCI-E slots - TOP being the one closest to the CPU):

GPU 3

GPU 1

GPU 2

GPU 4

This GPU-order is being reported by both MSI afterburner, eVGA PrecisionX, Nvidia Control Panel and GPU-Z (And most likely all other programs I can throw at it to show GPU-order).

I *DONT THINK* this created any diminishing effect on the cards - It just bothers me that I have the Monitor plugged into GPU 3 in a 4-Way SLI-SETUP - When i seen it plugged into GPU 1 in 99.9 % of all setups like that.

There are NOTHING in the BIOS regarding GPU / PCIE - Other than what to initiate first, and I tried all options there, just for giggles.
