    Question 16x PCI slot does not detect graphics card.

    I have a Z370-E and a 1070 FE and my top PCIe slot won’t detect my graphics card. I’ve updated my BIOS and I’ve tried reseating my card. I’m having trouble thinking of other methods of troubleshooting. Anyone got any ideas or am I a big dumb?

    Question Performance difference if a video card is running in a PCIe 3.0 x8 slot and the same card in a PCIe 4.0 x4 slot (x16 physical slot).

    If two similar (high end) PCIe 3.0 video cards, one running in a PCIe 3.0 x8 slot and the other running in a PCIe 4.0 x4 slot, will there be any performance difference between them? Theoretically both slots will give the same speed. But will the PCIe 3.0 card utilize the full potential of PCIe...

    [SOLVED] graphic card performance with PCIEX16 slot vs PCIEX4?

    I know that if you're using just 1 video card,you're supposed to be using x16 , but in my case, I'm using Gigabyte B250M Gaming 5 and the SATA port 1 and 2 are interfering with the videocard that is more than 220mm in length. so I'm wondering if it's a big deal to use the PCIEx4 instead for GTX...
