    Default P6X58D-E beta bios

    Hey i was wondering if their is any beta bios for the P6X58D-E that might let me run my 5870 in the 2nd slot and the 8800gt in top slot and still have 5870 as primary card. I used to do it on my old gigabyte board but i dont see the option in bios on this asus to do it or im overlooking it.

    Hello bal3wolf,

    There is currently no BIOS that adds a switch feature for making the 2nd PCI-e x16 slot become the primary slot. May I ask what the reason is that you want to have the 5870 in the 2nd slot and the 8800GT in the 1st slot?

    Because the 8800gt is a single slot card and the 5870 is double i have them in setup 5870 in 1st slot and 8800gt in 3rd but it gets no air cause its right next to the psu. If i could get them setup 8800gt in 1st and 5870 in 2nd theirs lots of cool air cause of the big gap between the 8800gt and 5870 then nothing next to the psu.

    Ok, let me give this feedback to the PM's for this motherboard and I'll let you know what I find out.

    Hi bal3wolf. What's the trouble that you are currently having when you put 8800GT in 1st slot and 5870 in 2nd slot and connect the monitor to the 5870?

    yea 8800gt in 1st and 5870 in 2nd with lcd connected to the 5870 get no output. And that i can tell theirs no option in bios to switch what pcie slot you use first like iv had on some other boards. I have the antec 900 case so by putting the 8800gt in pcie1 and it being a single slot card theirs a good gap between it and the 5870 and both cards would get nice airflow. Where with it in the 2nd it kills all the air to the 5870 and in the 3rd it gets no airflow with it being ontop of the psu.

    I see. You're right, I was able to duplicate the issue. I can't promise that we will develop a test BIOS to add a primary PCIe switch function but I will follow-up with our BIOS engineers and see if this would be doable.
