Re: Using only the second PCIE x16 same speed ? for video card

OT. A friend from Sweden just left my house to head back home...

The fact that they label it PCIE8 makes me wonder although someone already mentioned its not a factor at this time.

Any recommendation on software that displays this information. I will give SIW a try later.

I'm sorry, I gave you wrong information -- see, even for me it's hard to keep track!

The 2nd PCIe x16 slot only runs at up to x8 speed. So your x16 card will function/work fine, but will be running at x8 speed. (If you look closely at the slot, you'll see it only has pins for up to x8). If that's not an issue for you, great, problem solved. But if you want your card to run at x16 speed, you'll need to follow what I said above.

Ok I guess I will make due with the 2 PCIe x1 and the PCIe x4.
BTW. My plan is to connect HDMI streaming cards to connect cameras and use software as a switch. At this point up to 3 cameras is enough.
