Like I said, the processor supplies 16 Gen3 PCI-E lanes to the graphics card slots. The processor is called "Northbound".

The additional Z87 chipset, which the PCH is part of, supplies up to 8 Gen 2 PCI-E lanes for the other PCI-E slots on the board.

The second diagram in the link I provided shows this pretty clearly. There are really two separate PCI-E buses. One is for high speed graphics and one for peripherals, which don't really need the Gen 3 speeds (neither do most graphics cards either).

These are separate and the BIOS allows you to manually override the rate of each one separately, that is why there are two settings.

Don''t worry about it, leave them at their defaults

That's a steal, great board, I've had mine since its release basically around August 2013. When you get it check that everythings working properly, and update to the latest bios version. Updaing is a breeze on these boards with "Bios Flashback" feature.

Still rocking mine from launch Aug. 2013 as well, love it to death. It's been rock solid stable with my OC, and has done everything I need it to.

I was wondering if you guys might be able to help me out. During POST, my computer shows my CPU speed at 800mhz. I am running the Hero VI board with the latest bios, 1603, and almost all settings at default. Task manager reports the cpu speed at 800mhz as well, but CPU-Z shows it at 3.699 GHZ. What information do you guys need to help me figure out why my bios shows 800mhz instead of at least my default clock speed?

Btw, the temps are being reported as 80-84° F for the cpu and about 79-82°F for the motherboard. My cooler is a Corsair H105.

Right now I have a 4770k at 4.4ghz at 1.167V stable for months now, temps while gaming vary 50-63 pending ambient temp (live in Texas). I believe I was able to get a 4.5/4.6 clock but that required me to be around the 1.2-1.25V range, still in decent temps (NH-14D cooler in a Rosewill Black-hawk Ultra Tower). I believe I went back down to 4.4 due to the big voltage jump. I was wondering is it worth trying to squeeze out any more speed? I was able to put my Ram at 2400Mhz w/ Timings of 9-11-11-25-1. I have just been browsing forums and reading a lot more lately and just had me thinking really. From reading it seems like no real increase from 4.4-4.6 unless benchmarking. I just recently got a 980ti oc'd to 1476 Core and 1952 Mem speeds.

Specs/Tweaks:
4770k @ 4.4Ghz 1.167V 9 (Idles 25 C Load 50-63C)
Max Hero VI
HX750 Corshair
Samsung Pro/Evo 256/500 SSDS
Blackhawk Ultra Tower
Adaptive Mode set at 1.167V with +.005 Offset (1.172V)
System Agent: 1.008 w/ .175 Offset
Input Voltage 1.85V
Speed Step On, Rest settings Auto for power savings (Have SSD Performance set on but set minimum CPU to 20% to get power savings) Down-clocks Speed and Voltage
Ram 1.65V 2400mhz @ 9/11/11/25/1
All other settings are pretty much Auto for voltages
Some other settings are diabled I.E Spread Spec, Power savings, Virt,
For SVID Support/Control, I have disabled but from reading I should enable this
Also, what about LLC? Thats on Auto and CPU Power Phase is (Auto?) I read change to Optimized.

Anyways, TLDR, should I try to push this any further or just be happy with what I have. many game and some video endcoding, but I would say getting the extra would be just because not really needing.

My Hero VI still running strong after almost 2 years.. 4790K @ 4.8ghz stable.. I can do 4.9ghz but it runs a bit hotter than i'd like.. Seems like Z97 doesn't really bring anything advantageous over the Z87?

m.2, updated supreme FX.

If you are thinking about getting a MH7, it is moot, you can't find them anywhere.

Same withMH6I, still going strong.

I think you can hack UEFI to support m.2 on the MH6 and use a PCI-E add-on if you really need it.

Disable EIST in bios, however you should lock your CPU voltage somewhere between 1.000v - 1.100v (otherwise you get too high voltage on auto, like 1.100v-1.200v). I run my system on XMP, runs most of the time @ 3.8ghz and 1.025v.

Do you have an idea how to do this or where I can find a hacked bios for the VI hero? I have a Samsung 950 pro that I got for a gift and would like to use it ( boot from it even) and not have to upgrade the rest of my system.
