MSI B450M Mortar nvme + gpu + sound card ?

Can i run nvme + gpu + sound card at the same time on MSI B450M Mortar mothreboard ?

 

All slots that will be occupied.

 

1. First M.2 slot (NVME SSD)

2. First PCI-E x16 slot (Graphics Card)

3. Second PCI-E x16 (x4) slot (PCI-E x1 Sound Card)

 

Sound card will not ruin Graphics Cards performance ?

Yes you can run them at the same time without ruining gpu performance.

 

The gpu might run at 8x instead of 16x but iirc it only causes a 1-2% performance difference, not something you will notice.

Ryzen has 24 lanes so more than enough for your case.

 

By default the lanes are split 16/4/4

16 for gpu, 4 for nvme and 4 for the chipset.

 

It is possible the 1x slots run from the chipset so if you for some reason want 16 lanes for the gpu it might be worth putting the soundcard in a 1x slot instead of the other 16x one.

 

Just make sure the gpu is in the top slot (the one with metal armor or whatever it's called).

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

Thanks for reply! So basically there will be no performance decrease.

 

I can't put sound card in x1 slot because GPU is massive at 2.5 slots.

in that case the only way it would affect performance would be in case airflow was cut off

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
