Me. Slot one. Closest to the chip and RAM.

In Nuendo, the ASIO meter is below 10%, even with huge EWQL Platinum Play projects.

Im not sure i can get the raydat in that one since i have a noctua nh-d14 installed. is there any advantage using the pcie 2.0 x16_3 slot? It is pcie x1 compatible. Im not sure what the x16, x8/x8, x4, x1 means. Could you explain that to me?

Each PCIe slot has its own direct channel to the CPU, so there is no disadvantage to using any of the slots.

Have you installed the card? Are you experiencing issues? Or are you just asking ahead of time?

Im just asking ahead of time just in case there is potential for some kind of malfunction.

With RME, the chance of "malfunction" is zero point zero.

In other words, you'll be fine.

There is no worry of IRQ sharing? And do any of the other pcie slots have a faster transfer rate?
