    Is there anyone ever tried using the 2nd PCIE_16 for x1 card? Are the other PCIE slots still available?

    In a way it's annoying that Any Motherboard manufacturer has these "conditions" attached to any of the Pci-e slots. Just goes to show that these boards are "trimmed" to fit a price point and conditions imposed on Pci-e usage is probably easy to implement because on average not everyone uses all the available slots simultaneously.

    i know people have used a pci-e dsp card in the extra x 16 slot with no problems or loss of the other pci-e slots already used, and this is with a dsp card that is known to be finicky (UAD-1-e/UAD-2).

    was it GA-MA78G-DS3H?

    this mobo clearly notify that if secondary PCIE_16 is used up to x4 then the 3 PCIE x1 slots become unavailable. If one mobo doesn't have this kind of note it might work as you mentioned above.

    That may only apply if the First PCIE is also in use, you would just have to test it out I guess
