evga classified x16 or x8 pcie slot difference

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The watercooling to my graphics card is struggling abit because i am using the first slot, if my graphics card was in the middle slot there would be alot less kink in the tubing but aparently the middle slot only runs at x8.
can anybody confirm this? if so will it make a difference? im running a liquid cooled gtx 480

Really only 590's and 6990's have enough power to fully saturate an X16 bandwidth where you would actually notice the difference.
