Gene z87 Pcie question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
HI

Would it matter if I installed my gpu in the second full speed pcie slot other than the first? reason asking is because about to get a new gpu next month and considering putting it under water, cpu already is with a 240mm in the roof and a 120mm at the rear exhaust position so with a gpu with wc block in slot 1 I would not have the space to connect the gpu block to the 120mm rad, in the second full speed lane I would have the room.

thanks in advance

Both are electronically 16x. So it should give you full bandwidth regardless of slot, once theres only one card installed. I know my Z77 board does if I take out my top card, cant speak for Z87 however. If I was to bet on it though, I'd say it would be fine.

That's not true. First slot is X16, the second only runs X8. Both drop to X8 if second used. Same is true for your UP5.
