Wow, thank you for you answer sir. Really helpful. But I can't seem to find PCIe x16 Gen on that motherboard. Can that be installed like the eSATA bracket?
the board has 2 x PCI Express 2.0
x16, so the x16 slots are generation 2, if the PCIe x16 Gen is something else (like a riser card) idk, i can't find anything about it
as for the eSata bracket, it doesn't actually use a slot, it just is a low cost solution to take internal sata and turn them into eSata and the bracket just goes into the expansion slots of the case
