    PCIe Slot for Graphics Card

    Hi,

    Can someone help me selecting the right PCIe Slot for a Graphics Card? I read the manual and it tells the specs for the slots, but it is unclear to me which slot is the best for running a single ZOTAC GeForce GTX 980Ti AMP! 6GB ZT-90503-10P.

    Normally, I would have put the graphics card in slot #1, but there is a fan to the water cooler in the way. Will it work the same plugged into slot #4?

    The motherboard is the Rampage V Extreme Edition 10.

    I also have a RevoDrive 350 that I normally would have put in slot #4, but because of the fan, I need to swap slots with the graphics card.

    Really, I just need to know if switching the two will run exactly the same -- RevoDrive in slot #1 and Graphics Card in slot #4.

    Thank you!

    Slot one is usually the preferred slot. Should work in another X16 slot and perform the same, actually X8 would be fine also as the bandwidth for x8 got breached for the first time with the 2080Ti and not by much either. So if you had one of those you would see like a 5-6% drop in performance in X8 Vs X16.

    Thanks. I am going to give it a try.

    edit: It worked just fine.
