PCIe Bandwidth questions on Max V Gene

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The motherboard can be seen here

https://www.asus.com/media/global/products/Eh8FqqcmVLDbZLyx/J1KyFhvdrRkO8AO9_500.jpg

What I want to know is whether it is possible to use a PCIe sound card while maintaining x8/x8 for crossfire.

If all slots are populated, will the bandwidth be x8/x8/x1 or will populating the black x4 slot with a soundcard reduce the bandwidth to x8/x4/x1 ?

The black slot is off the z77 chipset so will always be pci-e 2.0 x4 and the others get split across the cpu for either 1x16 or 2x8
