I run 3x 8980, on slot 1, 4 & 6, first get full 16x, rest get 8x. This is completely normal and not a reason to return imo.

Hope this helps:)

I agree it's no reason to return a board. Unfortunately, I already arranged for a return and replacement based on previous posts saying it definitely should do x16 with any combination of slots 1, 3, 5, and/or 7 frown.gif Anyway, I'm replacing it with the USB 3.1 version; perhaps that one is different, and that fact led to the confusion. I'll at least have a chance to find that out for certain.

Well that is a reason to exhange it, if i could exhange mine for a USB 3,1 version i would have done it easily.

Though, it seems like the board are identical otherwise so you should get the same ``Problem`` on the new board as your old board had. smile.gif

Well, since this board is for a gaming rig, USB 3.1 won't be of much use, and could be worse if it provides more bandwidth at the cost of more latency, a pretty common trade-off in computing. ("Fast" is such a misused word: more things happening in a given time is not the same as each thing happening in less time.)

Yes, I'm prepared for it to have the same "problem". I just wanted to be sure the board didn't have a minor defect, which I thought it might have, so that's why I arranged to return it. Anyway, the "problem" is meaningless in gaming applications, so no harm done smile.gif

If the new board can't deliver x16 bandwidth with two cards arranged as I want them arranged, I'd call that a serious failure of imagination on the part of Asus' design team. They really ought to address it with a BIOS revision if possible.

I reviewed plenty for my build and came up with Seasonic. There is the X-1250 but X-1050 would be plenty big enough and have a look at the Snow Silent 1050.
