Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 Motherboard PCIe slots


[link to this post]
 
I am getting this motherboard soon and i am slightly confused about the PCIe slots and it sharing the bandwidth, this was taken from the motherboards website (The PCIe x16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 slot, PCIe x1_2 slot, USB3_34 and eSATA. The PCIe x16_3 default setting is in x1 mode.) does this mean i won't get full 16x speeds when using a PCIe 16x graphics card?,

Page 2-12 and 2-13 ought to help work it out.

So i am guessing if i use a single graphics card in slot 1 then i will get the full x16 speed, but if i am using two graphics cards then it will be split x8 for both?.

I was just building this computer up and went to connect my PSU up to the motherboard and realise it is different, it seems to be a EATX connector and not a ATX connector like i have, didn't think these was different?.

I have managed to get a 20 pin connector to a 24 pin convertor now but it still isn't working, do i need to connect the 12v power up as well, didn't think that would matter as never used it on the other board?.

Yes, that 12V supply is required for the CPU

I just quickly went and got this, but the system still doesn't seem to be powering up, really confused now.

i dont see anywhere in both your posts that mentions you trying a different psu ?
as you say its only a 20pin connector on your current psu then you definatly need a new one as 20 pin psus are very old and definatly not suitable for new hardware
