Was reading the user reviews at Newegg for the new R5E10 and Asus rep comes on and tells the buyer when using a 6800K and 28 lanes, if he uses a straight U.2 connection off the mobo, he will effectively drop slot one from 16X to X8, even running single graphics. I'm like what?
The Asus rep's solution was either buy a 40 lane Broadwell E CPU OR connect his U.2 drive via one their M.2 to U.2 Hyper Kits.
Wait, I won't drop my slot number one from 16X to 8X using my PCIe slot four or M.2, right?
Got the 28 lane 6800K knowing I would only ever populate the board with single graphics and single PCIe or M.2 SSD drive.
