    Need confirmation as to which is the correct slot


    Hi. This is my motherboard (you'll need to scroll down a bit):
    H97M-PLUS | Motherboards | ASUS Global
    and I'm told that it has 2 PCIe X16 slots and 2 that are just PCI.

    Am I right in saying that the x16 slots are the two outermost ones i.e. the first and fourth slots? Many thanks.

    YES. Counting down from the CPU they would be the 1st and 4th slots. The other way to tell, is that the PCI-E x16 slots are the ones with the LOCKING CLIPS on the ends.

    Generally, the best PCI-E x16 slot to use is the one closest to the CPU.
