Hi guys,

I have this MSI x99a SLI Plus Mobo with i7 5820k, two GTX 1070s and a Samsung m.2 950 pro.

I just moved the bottom GTX from PCIe slot 3 to slot 5 because the top GTX on slot 1 was getting too hot. Is it going to be a problem?

I was reading the manual but I really don't understand the tables talking about lanes, bandwidth, etc...

Sorry for being a noob. Please help. Photo below:

As Popatim states, if it works, you're good.

Your processor supports a maximum of 28 PCI Express lanes. According to the table in your user's manual - pg 1-21, a 2-way SLI configuration cannot use both slots at x16 throughput. The second card will only run at x8, but this should not pose any problems.
