I have Intel s5520sc workstation mobo, and in here:

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/ser... (klick on "View More" on specs)

they say all PCIE are 2.x (x16, x8 and x4). Now in here:

http://ark.intel.com/products/36600/

they say that only x16 slots are 2.x, others are 1.x

How the hell I should understand what version they really are?

PLEASE, help me on this, maybe I do not understand something, this makes me crazy........ :)

I add the link for product brief http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/docum...

When you look at the picture where the MB is inside the case. The two long black slots are pcie2.0 X16, one shortest block is the pcie1.0X4, other the shorter black one is the pcie1X8, the white one is the pci.

Thank U for reply,

I know how x8 x4 x1 and x16 looks like, my question is are they v2? By reading your post I guess its v1, intel ses in one page that its v1, in other that its v2. Are you 100% shure its v1? If so, than I have crappy mobo :)  P.S. I have read other PDF before, i manage find same: It's v1 and v2 capable, Im not so pro to understand this. But U find it wrong too: Two long is pcie2.0 x16 as u sed, then is x8 (not x4), then x4 (not x1), after that pci (white). Im wrong on this too? Dams, I spend a lot of money to find out that intel lied to me..... :ouch: 

Edit:

In here:

they say its workstation MOBO, in your linked PDF its SERVER MOBO, another lies.............. I do not get Intel, can anyone give any Intel support email? I cant find any contacts......

Thanks Cin19 looking this up for 3dgeo

The Intel® S5520sc is an older board and due to limits on the number of PCI-e lanes with the processor/s. We limited the lower level slots to make sure that the graphic slots were locked in with the higher bandwidth.

Thank u both for reply,

After half a hight of searching I found it my self that it is v1, but still thank U. Why they write in one page that its v2?
Then I buyed that mobo I didn't thinked that I will need x1 and x4 v2, now i do.... Can I plug x4 into x16 slot? It will work properly?

Because the x16 is backward compatible with X8 or X4, so you only can get the X4 speed.
