    PCIe lanes and a cleanup batter build

    Chase Chick Level 1

      My workflow is a lot of C4D, AE, and PP.  I've been thinking of getting a new build, along with forcing myself to learn Octane Render.


      So I'm thinking about this build:




      Also, I've got a couple other SSD's laying around that I'll probably put in here as well.


      Question.  The 5960x is going to have 40 lanes. 2xTitans is 32.  Intel 750 nvme is 4, and areca is 8.  I'm obviously over the limit.


      Can the areca downgrade to an x4 mode, putting me right at the magic 40?


      Thanks all.
