Question about TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING (WI-FI)

Go to solution Solved by NunoLava1998,

Even if it did use x8 speeds the 1660 Ti would definitely not get a performance hit at all (hell, you'd have to go to 1080 Ti/RTX 2080 levels for that to happen).

Greetings, 

 

Planning of doing build, some parts ordered ( still on its way ) are 9600k, Asus TUF Z390M-PRO GAMING (WI-FI), GTX 1660 Ti, Noctua NH-D14, 1x M.2 NVMe and 1x M.2 SATA drive.

 

Checked the Noctua's site for memory support, all good there, but some time after ordering remembered to check motherboard compatibility only to realize that cooler is going to block first pci-e slot.

 

Motherboard has two PCIe x16 slots, does the second slot operate at x8 speeds? 

Manual just states that in single VGA configuration you should use first pci-e for best performance and second PCIEX16_2 is listes as N/A.

 

So am I in trouble or what, should I change cooler to smaller one, change to ATX motherboard or am fine using second pci-e slot?

 

Thank you.
