  1. Check your mobos' documentation. In there you will find a diagram showing the layout of your motherboard.
  2. the ducomentation has nothing written about it

    @jallenlabs ECS Alhena gl6 ( a bit old i know)
  3. Is this your mobo? >> http://www.legendmicro.com/store/6058_HP-5188-5588-Alhena-GL6-MOTHERBOARD.lmsp (sorry, couldn't find a bigger pic) If so, the pci-e slot is the black one above the 3 white slots.
  4. yeah.it resembles my mobo ..... but it is exactly(90 % sure) this one

    lmfo (laughing my feathers off) if you don't mind I'll use that when I get an opportunity :D

    But getting back to the business at hand. Sorry, couldn't find what version pci-e that board has, although I did find on one forum someone saying it was revision 2.1 and on windows 7 forum mention of using cpu-z to find out.
  7. thnk u for the reply...couldnt log into tomshardware.... have exam these days ... but i dont think cpu -z tells anything about pcie version
  8. Opps, sorry, I meant Gpu-z
  9. the only problem is that it tells about current gfx ....mine is Onboard...so it tells nothing about PCIE

    but thanks it is a good software :D
    i am thinking of upgrading .... thats why i want to know the PCIE version

    I've never used it with onboard graphics. Is the pci-e info box greyed out? Good to know.

    Why do you need to know that? Just upgrade and be done with it. PCIe devices will automatically negotiate the highest speed supported by both devices, there is no point worrying about it.
