[Solved] Asus ET2300 2xmPCIe
I have an All in one system ET-2300 which has 2 thunderbolt connectors and 2 mPCIes. The CPU is i5-3330 (Ivy Bridge). I am wondering if I can use 2x mPCIe using Gen 2. I remember I have seen somewhere that was mentioned that mobos with Thunderbolt were somehow still unlocked and bonding was possible. How can I verify that?
In addition, can I use the Exp GDC with 2 hdmi ->mPCIe instead of the NGFF?
Thank in advance!
Best way to check the lane width of the mPCIe ports is to peruse them using hwinfo. This is a 3rd gen i-core system. Intel locked down lane combining after 1st gen into the ME FW. You'd need to confirm the mPCIe ports are [port1+2], [port3+4], [port5+6], [port7+8] before you consider trying to hack the ME FW to combine those ports as x2.
