Is there a diff between the 2 PCI-E slots

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Need some help here. I was wondering if anybody has run the lower PCI-E slot on the DFI Land Party board.

Am asking because a few months ago when I ran the same setup in the upper PCI-E slot I was getting over 84000 on 3DMARK & now with the same setup but with water cooling & the video card in the lower slot my best score is 77000.

 

I'm a bit confused. I thought both slots were 16X by themselves. And in SLI mode they went into 8X ... right...?

 

Anyways, if anyone has any ideas please give em up. I have virtually changed nothing on my PC since I went water cooled. Save for moving the video card to the lower slot on the M/B.

 

I dunno bout this guys........ please help............... thanks

By default in the upper pci-e slot is 16x and the lower slot 2x. By moving the sli jumpers to sli mode both pci-e slots are at 8x.
