    Yes, if you use all 4 slots they will all run at x8

    1. 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1/PCIEX16_2) (Note 2)
    2. 2 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8_1/PCIEX8_2) (Note 3) (The PCIEX16_1, PCIEX16_2, PCIEX8_1 and PCIEX8_2 slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)

    (Note 3) The PCIEX8_1 and PCIEX8_2 slots share bandwidth with the PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 slots respectively. When PCIEX8_1 is populated with an expansion card, the PCIEX16_1 slot will operate at up to x8 mode; when PCIEX8_2 is populated with an expansion card, the PC IEX16_2 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.

    ^^ Thus x8/x8/x8/x8 ^^

    Anytime!

    I saw your post at another forum on this, but I couldn't find it tonight when I got in. Hope they helped you there as well, wherever it was :)

    If there were wrong go post that info for them in case anyone finds your thread later looking for the correct answer.
