Looking to build a replacement for my 1st gen TR 1950x build.
I’m running into some confusion over X670E boards, namely the PCIe lane splits.
Bought a Aorus Extreme, but because of the way they setup the PCIe, if you use 3+ m.2 slots it pulls the bandwidth from the primary PCIe slot, slowing your GPU.
Looking at the 3 following boards to swap:
Asus ROG STRIX X670E-E GAMING WIFI
Asus ROG CROSSHAIR X670E HERO
MSI MPG X670E CARBON WIFI
Here’s what I’m looking for 3-4 M.2 4.0 ssds, along with my current 3080 and possibly a swap to a 7900xtx once reviews come in. I’m also hoping to get 4x16, 2x32 but I see that memory is still a bit squirrely.
I grabbed the Aorus Extreme on an impulse while picking up a 7950x from Microcenter this Sunday so nothing is built yet. I think it was the only one in stock that had native 10gig eth, I could always just move my 10gig add-in card from my Zenith Extreme over to one of the other 3.
Any advice would be appreciated.
