    ASUS Rampage V10 Edition - PCI Configuration Question

    Before I buy this board I want to ensure I get the components / configuration.

    I want to run two GTX 1080's and an NVMe drive. i7-6850k so a 40 lane CPU

    According to page 1-8 of the manual I should place the GPU's in slots PCIEX16/X8_1 and PCIEX16/X8_3 so both run at x16.

    The question how do I handle the NVMe drive. I would prefer the Intel 750 drive since it is available in 1.2TB size.
    This drive is available as a PCIe or U.2 drive. Which format should I get so that the GPU's still run at x16 or is that not even possible?
    Looking at the threads it appears that if i place it in slot PCIEX8_4 it causes issues and if I use the U.2 slot it also turns on the M.2 slot which drops slot 1 to x8.
    Is this true? Is it a design issue or something that will be fixed with a BIOS update?

    It appears though that if I buy a Samsung 950 and place it in the M.2 slot it won't effect the GPU's at all.

    What will the spacing be for the SLI connector on the GPU's? I want to buy a high speed bridge but need to know the spacing.
