Supermicro H8SGL with PCIe x16 video card? Tags: Graphics Cards Supermicro Graphics Last response: April 26, 2011 6:38 PM in Graphics & Displays Share 1337-W4Nx0r March 15, 2011 11:14:26 AM The Supermicro H8SGL mainboard has one PCIe slot that is x16 physically, but only x8 electrically. What is the probability for a standard x16 video card to work properly in this slot?

It will just run at reduced speed, but judging from a recent Toms review, even a GTX 480 will only be slightly bottlenecked even running at x4 speed. 1337-W4Nx0r March 15, 2011 6:34:16 PM Thank you. Should it work fine because experience says it should, or should it work fine because PCI Express standards mandate that it should? Can't find your answer ? Ask !

I'm actually using a pci-e x8 to x16 adapter in a Supermicro board with 2x quad core xeons and a radeon 5850 and it works great. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
