So have I. This is what I am asking about this specific board where asus did some sort of voodoo to make the PCIe slots for many video cards. (since 1155 cpus only have 16 lanes)
edit - every 'special' slot works fine with a video card.
in the real world sure, Ive done this allot on other boards with multiple PCIe 16x slots. Each one of these cards are 1x. the board will happily use 3 video cards in those slots tho. If I insert any non video card into any of the slots even if its the only other pcie card, it will not be...
Asus Maximus IV Extreme PCIe usage
Does anyone else have one of these who can tell me if it is possible to use non video cards in the red PCIe slots?
This board is a whole mess of weirdness. I got it thinking I can load up all available slots with TV tuners.
I found one of these in the trash, looks like some one just cut off the cable so i am looking for a pinout and to figure out what is possible a missing board inside is.
Photo pulled from ebay for ref, mine is terrible looking. I can post actual pics if enough interest
