    Default EX58 extreme PCIe slot questions

    Hey Guys,

    Just trying to clear up something I can't really find Googling around.

    The X58 Extreme the top 2 slots are 16x and bottom 8x. Right what I want to know is that I'm atm running 2 x 285's in sli which as I understand will be @ 16x. Will populating the 3rd/bottom slot drop back the 2nd/middle slot to 8x? Will this affect real time performance if it does?


    Cheers

    No it will be 16x16x8 from what I see the only prob will be you may not be able to hook up power and reset and and additional usb and dang sure wont be using floppy or ide at all. As putting in third card you will be running with case open all the time to power on and off and reset.

    Thanks,
    Your right about the usb, the floppy/ide but I don't use either of those, but the power on off should "just" be right just checking with a 8800. I'm going to W/C the lot so hopefully will clear those areas. If not I might have to live with plugging my usb's in and out the back.
