The MB manual says that this can be x8 or x16, depending on the slot occupation
of the rest of the system. "PCIe 2.0 x16_5 slot" (the blue slot most away from
the CPU) is an unconditional x16 slot, so you may like to try out that one.

Hi. Correct the blue slot x16_1 close to the CPU. Hmmm... Interesting about slot 5 I
did not know that. I tried slot 1 and 3. I will have a look again on slot 5. thanks for tip.

Anyway ASUS recommends always in a 1 card configuration for slot 1.
