Kona 3 in slot 4?
on Mar 15, 2007 at 11:14:33 pm

Hi!

I have bought a MacPro with a Kona 3 card installed in slot 4. The installation notes delivered with the card says it should be in slot 3 for optimal performance.

As far as I can see, I have no problem with the card. What could happened? Should I move it to slot 3?

Thanks!

If AJA says Slot 3 is optimal, you should install it into Slot 3. Those folks spend a LOT of time testing all this stuff for us and I always follow their instructions to a T. Including the Expansion Slot utility.

the slots in the Mac Pro are dynamic, and the number of lanes can be changed with the apple Expansion Slot Utility. Slot 3 is the "safe" slot, as you can't screw it up (by making it a 1 lane slot). Everything depends on where you put your storage host card (SATA, Fibre, or SCSI).

I'm just running Firewire 800 drives right now. Mayby I should move the card anyway.

Thanks!
