Solved GPU blocking PCI Express x1 slot. Will wireless adapter work and perform as expected in a PCI Express x16 slot? Tags: GPUs Motherboards Wireless Adapter PCI Express Last response: June 12, 2014 2:46 PM in Motherboards Share Oakiesmokie June 12, 2014 2:35:08 PM Hello, The wireless adapter requires a PCI Express x1 slot. The issue is, is that the GPU will block the only PCI Express x1 slot on the motherboard. I was wondering if the wireless adapter will work as intended in a PCI Express x16 slot? **Motherboard** | [Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99fxpr...) **Wireless Network Adapter** | [TP-Link TL-WDN4800 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/tp-link-wireless-network-c...) **Video Card** | [Sapphire Radeon R9 270 2GB Dual-X Video Card](http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100365...) Any advice would be greatly appreciated More about : gpu blocking pci express slot wireless adapter work perform expected pci express x16 slot Reply to Oakiesmokie Best solution clutchc a c 400 V Motherboard June 12, 2014 2:37:19 PM Yes, it should.
