    Hi! :D I was wondering if the OCZ RevoDrive will work with my Asus p5n-e sli?

    That motherboard doesn't have a PCIe x4 slot, so I don't think it would work. Then again, I've never tried putting a x4 card in a x16 slot.

    From Wikipedia:
    Anyway, isn't an OCZ RevoDrive a bit overkill? Just get an OCZ Vertex 2/3 with a SATA connector (it also costs less) :P

    Or a Samsung 830 with a SATA3 connector. Also costs less.

    you can fit smaller pcie card than the pcie slot width.
    actually things can be even more messed up as pcie slot width may not equal the number pcie lane available on that slot and also most card can function with less pcie lane than what they would ideally require.
