Also all X99 boards above your Gaming 7. That means all Gaming 9 and XPower versions.drwhimsy13 said:is there ANY MSI motherboard which I can plug my 5930 and 2 970s into and achieve enough slot separation to run overclock cool on vga cards and get 16 lanes on both cards ? appreciate your thoughts
Depends what slots they are in.d.nordlund date=1446837070 said:Hi
Sorry for being dense but I'm not sure I understand. I just bought a Samsung 950 Pro that im using together with my 2 AMD cards and a 5820K. And from my understanding I should be able to run the 950 Pro at 4x speed in the M.2 slot. Is that correct? Because I cant seem to get it above 2x right now.
If you have the X99 SLI Plus board or the Krait and you move the card to slot 5 it will make both cards run at x8. Slot 5 is only wired for an x8 and the "switch" gets tripped and makes your master gpu run at x8 as well. I just went through this and had to get rid of my EK Triple Serial Connector (that kept the cards in slots 1 and 5) for a Dual Serial Connector having the cards in slots 1 and 3. Its the only way to get x16 on both cards on this board.Cdb8457 date=1430940515 said:I have mine at E1 and E3. That makes them x16 and x16..... They are almost touching. Would it be back to move the bottom one down to E5 which is x8....How much of a difference to there?
that board splits lanes the same as a X99S gaming 9 ACjohn_a_constantine said:Hi all, Hopefully someone can help me out with this. I have the Godlike motherboard with a 5820k CPU and I am trying to work out the lane configuration for 2-way SLI with a sound card and an M.2. I was thinking E1 and E2 for the GPU's and then E4 for the sound card, but would it be possible to use E1 and E4 for the GPU's and then E5 for the sound card and just have it run at a lower Gen setting so as to not impact the other lane speeds, or would it simply allow it as it stood? Thanks.
No, x16/x8 or x8/x8 is totally irrelevant. Stick with the better temps and x8/x8voodoofox date=1463240578 said:So I was wondering, since these two cards supposed to work in sync, is there ANY benefit in having one at x16 and other in x8 while they are in SLI?
