Hi, i am building my new PC (First time i do this) and i have a new Gigabyte Z87MX-D3H motherboard and a new NVIDIA Quadro K600 (The basic quadro without power connector), and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.
I am not sure where to connect this GPU card... In the Board there are 3 identical Slots which in the manual are labelled as PCI Express x16 Slot, BUT in the Motherboard there are printed other names above each slot like:
PCI Expres 3.0
HDMI/DVI Display Port
Dual Bios ON/OFF charge
So My question is, regardless of what the Motherboard printed text says, ALL slots are the same? Can i connect the GPU in any of this slots?
I would like to connect it on the middle one or the one farther from the CPU Cooler (Hyper 212 Evo), so i have more AIRFLOW... If i connect it to the First Slot i think it will be too close to this cooler...(It will have only between 1 or 2 cms between the GPU circuit board and the COOLER...) And if so, there will be higher temperatures i guess...
