Thanks.
According to the manual you have to have them in slot 1 and 3, maybe 2 and 4 works also.

It probably work like this,lane 1 and 2 together share 16 lanes and 3 and 4 together share the other 16 lanes, total of 32, that´s what the X58 can handle.

If you put them in 1 and 2 you only get x8 each and if you put them in 1 and 3 you get x16 each.


Here´s what the manula says

I've currently got one in slot one and the other in slot two (Had to so I could fit the water cooling components), so I could check if there's any software or anything that could tell me if I'm using 8x or 16x.

EDIT:

GPU-Z: Bus Interface: PCI-E 2.0 x16 @ x8 2.0

I take it that means my cards are capable of x16, but are currently using x8. Is there a ginormous difference between x8 and x16? Starting to regret my water cooling layout choice a little...

EDIT #2:

Holy *****, just did a 3DM06 run with all of my components at stock and got a 19k score! I never broke 19k with the best OC's I could get on my old AMD!

No, but there´s a different and why do you want to run x8,x8 when you have x16, x16 available?

If I had gone 1 and 3 slot I wouldn't have been able to fit my MCP655 where I wanted it.

Check my quick build log to see what I mean.

I see, nice build btw

Don´t feel bad about it, it´s okey, some people might pick on you for it but don´t mind, tell them to mind there own business.


I did run some x8, x8 vs x16, x16 with my Maximus III Formula and Rampage II Extreme a while back.

Here´s some screenies, it´s not much of a different.

Maximus III Formula, Crysis 49,33 fps


Rampage II Extreme, Crysis 49,99 fps


Maximus III Formula, Stalker Clear Sky

Rampage II Extreme, Stalker Clear Sky

Can someone owning a Rampage III extreme just clarify which plug to use to power the motherboard , CPU and/or GPU.
Please


I'm still not sure yet if I need to use the 2x8 pins and the 2x4 Pins Molex for GPU. I plan of overclocking my CPU a lot (i7 930) and my graphic card (HD 5850) both will be water cooled by 1x360 Feser radiator and 1x240 feser Radiator (X-CHANGER).
I plan to watercool the Motherboard too when they release a waterblock for the board.

Most people don´t, it may be a bit bigger different at 2560x1600 but at 1920x1200 and lower it´s not much.
