Maximus V Extreme SLI slots

Recommended Posts

So I got the Maximus V Extreme from ASUS and planning to install 2 2slot GPU's. I read the manual and was surprised to learn that the slots recommended for 2way SLI is the top most, red slot, and the third from the top, black one. I always assumed that the ones marked in red are designed to be faster than the black one.

 

Is this an error, or am I just assuming too much? Good thing too that I read the manual before jumping into it.

Use first red slot and the black slot for 2 way SLI. Why?


From the site:

 

*2-2: Native x8/x8 mode is available when only PCIE_X16X/X8_1 and PCIE_X8_2B slots are in used.

 

Self explanatory.

Yes, I was just taken by surprise that they didn't do the same color like what's usually found in RAM slots.

 

And it's my first mb that supports SLI, so a bit of a noob moment for me there..

^^ Don't worry. I know, its odd, but it works in that way. You can do nothing about it.

Yes, the obsesive compulsive in me was just screaming why not to plug red and red.. lol
