View Full Version : Question about P5B Deluxe 2 PCIE x16 slots

If I put my card in the 2nd (black) PCI-E x16 slot, it reads x4 speed.
If I put it in the 1st (blue) PCI-E x16 xlot, it reads x16 speed.
is this normal?

So why do they call it a x16 slot if it isn't a x16 slot?

I also wondered that:(

Marketing most likely but yes itīs correct, one is x16 and the other is just x4.

"x16" slot usually refers to a full size slot... not necessarily a full speed one.
Anywhere it says that though, it should say "x16 slot (4x electrical)" or something like that.
Misleading? Yeah. It is. :p
