    [SOLVED] Setting PCIE slot to gen 3 instead of gen 4

    In the UEFI you can set the GPU's PCIE lane version on what version you want it, my question is if you set the lane to.....let's say version 3.0, will the lane of the NVME drives also change to that version? Correct me if I'm wrong and I am surely wrong, to my knowledge or how I understand NVME...

    [SOLVED] How to know if PCIe x 16 is alive without actually inserting a graphics card/any other peripheral ?

    I am planning to buy a graphics card, however I have some doubt about whether my PCIe slot is alive or not because of the following : 1. A few years ago my PC stopped working. The local mechanic replaced the SMPS and took out the Zotac GT 610. VGA was then directly plugged to the motherboard. I...

    Question A Z390 motherboard should switch to x8/x8 PCI with second graphics card, right?

    When I add a second, identical 2080ti graphics card and Nvlink to my Asrock z390 system, the cards show up in x16/x4 mode, not x8/x8 mode as expected, so I get no SLI. The only other thing I have installed on the motherboard is an .M2 SSD which I've tried in two different slots. I've tried...

    Question How come a pcie x1 card is faster in a pcie x8 slot?

    I have a motherboard which is pci 2.0. If I put the pcie x1 sata 3 adapter card into the pci x1 slot, I only get about 170MB/s with a sata 3 ssd drive. If I put the card into a 8x pcie slot, then I get about 450MB/s! Why would it be different? The pcie-x1 is supposed to be 500MB/s. I dont see...
