Does installing a PCIE 2.0 card in tandem with a PCIE 3.0 card cause the PCIE 3.


I would like to know the behaviour of adding a PCIe 2.0 card to my current setup. Is this a bad idea or what?

Motherboard: Asus rampage iv extreme
CPU: Intel 3930k
VIdeo: 3x7970s PCIe 3.0 graphics cards installed in pcie 3.0 slots

I am adding a Sound card to the 4th PCIe 3.0 slot but the sound card is only PCIe 2.0 compliant.

Will this cause any issues or performance concerns?

  1. No, this should not cause any issues.
  2. No shouldn't cause any issues
  3. Wouldn't think there would be a problem since the 3930K is PCI 2.0 and the mobo specs say it's PCI 2.0 x16/x8/x8/x8 if using all four.
  4. No issues Backward compatible
