Question about x58

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have a Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard, with 3 pci express slots. I'm currently running GTX 295s in the first 2 slots at x16. I want to install an Asus U3S6 usb3.0/sata6 controller card in the 3rd slot. Its only rated for pciex4. If I install it in the 3rd slot, would that downclock the 2nd slot to x8? The motherboard says that if another graphics card was installed, it would downclock, but the U3S6 is only x4. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you!
