Question PTHD PCI - slot config on mobo question?

alrighty,

does anyone know if you can run a PCI PT HD3 system with a PCI slot config like this:

2x 64-bit 133/100MHz PCI-X
1x 32-bit PCI Slots

they are all beside each other, as can be seen HERE.

many thanks,

A three card system (older cards) will not work with that MOBO. You can get one card in. You need consecutive PCIx which you do not have there. The boards with a host of consecutive PCIx slots are older (roughly 2 years). I am running a 5 card rig with a Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G,

well on that board the 2 PCI-X and 1 PCI are consecutive.

i know of two guys on the DUC who are running HD2 on it successfully, in the 2 PCI-X slots.

one of them tried it with HD3, the third card in the adjacent PCI slot, and had problems.

but that was with PT8, not 9, so i'm wondering if things have changed with the new version of PT and perhaps a new BIOS for the board.
