    literally says it on the specifications

    3x PCIe x16 slots
    PCI_E1 (from CPU)
    Supports up to PCIe 5.0 x16
    PCI_E3 & PCI_E4 (from Z690 chipset)
    Supports up to PCIe 3.0 x4 & 3.0 x1

    So the 2 lower PCI-E x16 slots runs at a Max speed of 3.0 x4 and 3.0 x1

    and yes, if you wana run any half decent gpu in these lower slots, it will be a either a extremely bad to "wtf you you doing" bad limitation.

    What do you need to run on that first slot?

    Some of the higher grade boards have faster 2nd and 3rd pci-e slots that won't fully choke a gpu

    The HTC Vive wireless card
    OR i'm going to have to get a mount to lift the GPU up so i can put the wireless card underneath the GPU

    Is the actual wifi chip removable from the vive pci-e card under that heatsink? If it is, it should just be a m.2 key e chip, and you can replace the existing wifi cards on the board with that one.

    a lot of these PCI-E wifi cards are basically adaptors for the M.2 cards to go into a PCI-E slot. From the pictures I've found online looks like the heatsink is just screwed on with a couple of screws. Try undoing it and see what's under.

    Your other option is to use with a PCI-E x1 extension cable so you can use the onboard x1 slot and more that vive card to somewhere that doesn't get in the way of a future GPU.

    This is what I was thinking too... but not sure how to mount something like that
    Or does it just 'hang' from the card mount?

    So far with my 12700K - It is performing as expected for my work pc.
    I am still on Win 10 operating system and there doesn't seems to be any issues.

    Do you guys think 12th gen is much lower voltage vcore than 11th gen?
    I am used to doing R15 Cinebench basic tests for example

    50x 1.2v 52x 1.3v 54x 1.4v that would be considered very good, all the way back to 7700K processors.
    My 12th gen can pass 55x with 1.29v and the other 1.34v :shock: even harder benchmarks as well. Just not all of them of course.

    Did I get lucky with store bought unicorns :confused:

    You mean like shrinking from 14nm?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/14_nm_process

    I have not been following the tech side of it OJR. Hardly read a review of these parts in 10 years.
    Then a tube video forget it :lol: Switched off in under 2 minutes.

    Not much can hold my attention these days. Oh boobies :wired:
