Hi.
I have a Sound Blaster AE5 sound card.
I'm building a new computer. I have already bought an ASUS B650E-E motherboard and a processor. Ram next month.
I found this information in the online manual.
Will connecting Sound Blaster AE5 to pcie16_3 limit pcie16_1 to 8x?

Does anyone have this motherboard and pcie sound card?

Hello, @mati8686x 

May I inquire about your BIOS version? 
Currently, with the GPU installed in PCIEX16_1 and the Sound Blaster AE5 installed in either PCIEX16_2 or _3, have you encountered any issues with GPU downclocking?
We recommend verifying this by actually installing and checking the setup. 

Thank you.

Due to the ongoing regional holidays, my responses may be slightly delayed.
Thank you in advance for your patience.‌‌‌‌ 🙂
