    GPU in PCIe 3.0 x16_2 slot

    Hi,

    I just bought myself an Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard and i was wondering if i can plug my graphics card in the second PCIe 3.0 x16 slot without loosing any performance.
    The graphics card is an Asus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Dual OC.

    The only reason for me to want to do this is looks. I think it's a bit of a shame to hide the southbridge heatsink and part of the one connecting with the M.2 heatsink behind the GPU. Why bother making them fancy when the GPU is going to hide them?
