    Question about lane sharing on a Z390 Maximus XI Hero



    I'm looking at a build with an i9 9900K and a Z390 Maximus XI Hero, but I have a question about lane sharing off of the processor and the motherboards chipset

    To simplify, here is what I'm intending to do in terms of devices and populating slots:

    1 GPU in top PCIEX16_1 slot - GTX 1080
    All 6 SATA connections populated (mixed HDD's and SSDs)
    Both M.2_1 and M.2_2 populated with PCIe based 2280 NVMe's 970 Evo's in PCIe mode (no raid)
    1 PCI USB 3.0 - four port card.

    The PCI USB card is here

    Which PCIEX1 slot should I use for the PCI USB card ... 1, 2 or 3? and will that share lanes with anything?

    Thank you in advance.
