    DQ57TM PCIe x16 slot : will it accept x8 non-video card (RAID)?

    astra4

      Hello,

       

      I intend to use the DQ57TM Desktop board with a hardware RAID controller, the Adaptec 5805Q, which has a PCI Express x8 interface.

       

      Adaptec told me to make sure my motherboard works with this, as PCI Express X16 slots sometimes work with video cards only.

       

      Reading through the Intel documentation, it really seems like they insist, whenever the X16 slot is mentoined, that this is meant for Graphics.

       

      Does anyone know if the mentioned Adaptec RAID controller will likely work on this board?
