View Full Version : Asus P5N32-SLI Premium 3 X16 PCI-Express slots terminology 101

The Asus P5N32-SLI Premium has 3 X16 PCI-Express slots available. From what I was reading in the owner's manual it's says only two of the slots which are the Blue and Black X16 PCI-Express slots will run in full X16 SLI mode making the total X32. Why make a motherboard with 3 X16 PCI-Express slots when you can only use the ones they suggest to get the full SLI performance. We should be able to sli any of those three slots available and get the same benefits at x32 regardless.

Two of the PCIE Slots are x16 for running SLI, the other PCIE is at x8 for running A PCI Express Physics Card/ or running another PCIE Graphics card for a second monitor, or for running a PCIE Graphics Card with Physics Drivers. :D :captnkill:
