Intel 750 series PCIe 3.0x4

Hi guys,

Just bought the 400GB version of the Intel 750 series NVMe PCIe 3.0x4 SSD.

Which slot on my Maximus VII Formula should I put it in? To me it looks like it should be Slot 6...

I only have 1 graphics card (Slot 2) and all the others are free...

Thanks........

If you install the Intel 750 into the PCIe 3.0/2.0 x8_2 slot, it will be running at full speed but your GPU will drop from x16 to x8.

If you install the Intel 750 into the PCIe 2.0 x4_3 slot, it will not be running at full speed but your GPU will remain at x16.

Hello mate. Are you sure about this ?

I want to use Samsung 950 PRO + PCIe adapter.
If I use the last(Black) slot-PCIe 2.0 x4_3, will my graphics card still tun at x16? Soem guy told me that "no, it will switch to 8x".
It's getting confusing..

My mobo is Asus Maximus 7 Formula. Z97 chipset.

Usually install at Slot 2 should be fine but before You install
marks sure follow manual instruction

As long as the PCIe 3.0/2.0 x8_2 slot is empty, your GPU will remain at x16.

As far as I know, the PCIe 2.0 x4_3 slot only shares bandwidth with the SATA Express E1 connector.
