Currently using 42 lanes, I'd like to add two more nvmes to the hyper m.2 card, setting gpus to x8 x8, but that pcie slot won't go x16 without removing a gpu from what I understand. Also decided not to spend any more money on components and went for new monitors finally. I'd have to change other components just to use another motherboard, so I'll avoid the snowball for now. Pretty happy with what I have.
