Hi Peter,

Putting your Kona LHi in Slot 2 will not give you any added benefits. The LHi is not an 8x card and therefore can not take advantage of Slot 2's higher speed. The main reason the LHe and LSe need to be in Slot 2 is because in testing, these slots were found to be the best stable slots for the cards. Additionally, the LHe and LSe are a different architecture than the Kona 3 or LHi (which share a similar architecture). As for the Kona 3 or LHi, either Slot 2 or 3 will work just the same. My only reason for suggesting Slot 3 as the best configuration is that it gives you the widest options when configuring a system.
