Do I use my slots correctly?!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all. 

I decided to check the HWinfo

And for some reason On Some slot, where GPU is located, it said it is not in use. 

Additionally, Am I using correctly the other slots to get Max performance from Hardware>?

 

I use Asus hero 7. MB 

GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X

If im right the m.2ssd and your gpu share the bandwith between the m.2slot ang pci express, so moving the gpu to the other red slot could improve performance

My asus strix x570-E does that, but im reading your motherboard's manual and we will see if that is true

But HWinfo already states that it is running in x16 mode, why it says it's empty idk, would ignore that.

 

Also your ram is also running in dual channel, you should be fine.

Nevermind, the m.2ssd shares the performance between the black and m.2 slot. You have no worries

Hello,

 

Well usually you'll go with A2/B2 populated for ram (2nd and 4th slot left to right) and not A1/B1 like you did but it works the same since it's the same channel. Never go A1/A2 or A1/B2 or A2/B1. So you are fine here.

 

From the website :

 

*1: The PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCIEX4_3) shares bandwith with PCIe 2.0 x1 and M.2 slot. The default setting is Auto Mode, which automatically optimizes the system bandwidth. If you install a PCIe 2.0 x4 device, the system will automatically detect and disable PCIe 2.0 x1 and M.2 slot.
*2: The PCIe 2.0 x1 slots (PCIEX1_1/2/3) will be disabled when PCIe 2.0 x16 slot (PCIEX4_3 ) operates under x4 speed or M.2 mode.

Sorry, but you got me confused me here. 

Can you please elaborate? 

Regarding the RAM, I was aware not to place them together. But in case I will switch them Like you mentioned, can it have some benefit?>

PS. 

Why It said Max ram speed 800? But on website, much more?!

DDR=douple data rate. It means that your ram is running at 2x80mhz meaning that it actually runs at 1600mhz.

Also MHz is not MT/s

In ddr terms as SavageNeo says it runs at double the speed.

800 Mhz are 1600 MT/s

If it was rated for 2400MHz, you need to enter BIOS and enable the XMP profile for your RAM.

And if it said Max supported is 1600  if I try to go higher will it decrease the performance? 

I was able to go to 1800mhz

As long as you dont chance the timing, no, it will not decrease the performance. But you may have an unstable system.

So better to keep on 1600

Wrong. The other red slot is running at 8x speed so what would result in even worse performance. The best he can do is get a PCIe to NVMe adapter card and put that in a lower slot so it doesn't share bandwidth with the gpu.
