    [SOLVED] What to Look for to Have Enough PCIe Lanes for My Case? (for preliminary research)

    I'm starting to consider building a new PC partly to get past some current issues and bring it more up-to-date for the SSD world we're in now. However, at least for my Skylake-era PC, I've found that PCI lanes became a concern I never had before. While in previous PCs I'd have fun adding...

    Question Bottleneck from PCIE Lanes?

    Im about to upgrade my System, and am worried that I may get some bottlenecking due to the overuse of PCIE lanes. I'm not too knowledgeable in this area so it may not even become an issue. Will this system be likely to encounter any such problem, if so how can I reduce it? OS: Windows 10 CPU...
