Solved PCI-E 3.0 on a ASUS Rampage II Extreme?? Tags: Asus Rampage PCI Express Motherboards Last response: October 15, 2012 1:52 AM in Motherboards Share kdescente October 14, 2012 2:41:54 AM I have read so many posts trying to find a reliable answer for this question, but am stumped... Simply put, can a PCI-E 3.0 video card be used and installed on a ASUS Rampage II Extreme motherboard, running an Intel i7 920 @ 2.67ghz? Ive read that yes, it is possible, but have also read that no, it isn't. The ASUS Rampage II Extreme is only PCI-E 2.0 compliant, and I am looking at upgrading my video card to a PCI-E 3.0. Any help whatsoever will be appreciated!
