So basically my first x16 lane wont give me signal so i ve been using the third lane which is x16/x8 and didnt really noticed a fps change but I could be wrong.

Just to solve a doubt, does it works the same as long as it says x16?

For modern platforms, the first GPU slot is connected to CPU and the rest are chipset lanes.
If you bought that 2060 should be really no difference in X8 and X16 if it's at least a 3.0 slot.
Well is an old mobo, Asus rampage extreme IV but gladly all seems to be 3.0, i remember when i bought it it was an expensive feature which i am glad i paid for lol, got future me covered.

Yeah got the 2060, the ASUS dual 6G Evo, i am receiving it today.

Slots x16_1, x16/8_3 - work in x16 mode.
Slots x8_2A, x8_2B - work in x8 mode.
Slot x8_4 works in x8 mode. Using this slot switches x16/8_3 into x8 operation mode.

You can read all this in user manual.
Thanks ma man, i supposed that was the case then i read somewhere that the first slot even is the same x16 works better cause goes directly to cpu and others x16 slots goes to the chipset, i am not really expert thats why my doubt came up.
