16 pci lanes with 2 graphic cards and a wifi card?

Go to solution Solved by TheKDub,

Yes.

 

Worst case scenario one of the cards will run in 4x, and another in 8x.

I have a i5 4690k running 2 way crossfire and will soon have to move from ethernet to wifi.

will I be able to put in a wifi card and still run crossfire?

yup

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

If I understand correctly, the little PCIe 1x slots are on a different controller than the full size PCIe slots.. You should be able to run the wifi card in a 1x slot without it making any changes to the GPUs in the other slots.

i7 not perfectly stable at 4.4.. #firstworldproblems

Yup, if they run at 4x you'll have zero bottlenecking and be 100% fine

I have that exact set up with 2 cards in sli. I put the WiFi card on the very bottom 16x slot which is controlled by the chipset.
