Going to have to remove that GTX 970, since the x8 3.0 will bottleneck my GTX 1080ti for sure.

The motherboard doesn't know anything other than "the video cards are being used". It's not going to go, "Oh hey, the video cards are being used for mining. Well, that's different! I'll give x16/x16 then."


Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.

Glad I got the clarification.

Just to confirm, that means that no matter what activity I am doing, when there are two cards plugged in, they get 8x/8x?

I am, however, able to use the GTX 1080ti in the bottom slot and move the GTX 970 to the top, though, and use the 1080ti (at 8x) for gaming?

I don't think the use of the cards dictates how many PCI-E lanes are available to them - or how many can be. I think that's where the confusion is coming from.

Gotcha. Well, at least I will swap them so that my 1080 runs cooler. I have an intake on the bottom and my 970 runs alot cooler than the 1080ti at the moment.

Hi everybody
I'm using my P8Z68-V motherboard and Core i5 [email protected],4Ghz cooled with a Scythe Zipang equipped with a Noctua 140mm fanrunning at 800-900 rpm. On full load with Prime95 (in place large FFTs) temperature is between 71-73° and Vcore is 1,322 - 324 V.
Is temperature too high? I need to work on CPU voltage tryng to keep it low?

Depends what you do with your computer. I had [email protected] with p8p67 pro gen3 and I upgraded to 7700k. I would say it was definetly worth it to me, 2500k was bottlenecking me in few games, overall everything became snappier.

I am noticing a Bottleneck on my CPU while clocked at 4.6ghz While trying to get fps between 160-240 on a FPS i have been playing. I see the CPU @ 100% while playing.

But i am ready to upgrade after Spending Over $2,000 on a Monitor and Video Card i want Smooth play!

That definetly helps. I recommend to upgrade to atleast 8700k But beware, if you are heavily to overclocking, 7700k and 8700k (6700k maybe too) have poor TIM under IHS/poor seal, so temps tend to be a bit high. Nothing like it would be problem with stock clocks/mild overclock, but it's fixable with delidding. I settled to mild 4.6GHz overclock with my 7700k as I didn't see huge improvement like I saw with sandy bridge overclocking.
