You can connect the ocz revodrive in pci.e 16x ?

Hello friends! comes time to buy ssd and I found the OCZ SSD RevoDrive PCI-Express, my question is if I connect to a pci.e where you put a video card in my case I have a 3 way SLI GTX260 and he is free only the last pci-e slot on the motherboard 3 rampage extreme, I mean the 4th pci.e red.
From the pictures it seems that only pci.e walk in the little ones ... and that makes me hesitate when deciding to purchase

  1. Yes. You can fir the Revo on to a x16 slot. HOWEVER keep in mind that there are quite a bit of possible compatibility issues when using this, so move with caution. Imo, just get a SATA2/SATA3 based SSD like a C300, Vertex 2,etc.

    It will run fine in the slot, tho it will steal some bandwidth from your GPU's...according to your motherboard's specs anyway.

    (support x16; x16/x16; x16/x8/x8 and x8/x8/x8/x8 configurations)

    right now you're running at 16/8/8 with the revo it would drop the 3 graphics lanes to 8/8/8

    Probably due to the fact that the aforementioned SSDs scale in a linear fashion in raid 0
