So for years, I've had my GPU on the bottom slot as in people like to call the 2ndry slot. I was looking up info and people say to put the graphics card next to the CPU. So I decided to do that and i use to run rocket league with about 40-120 fps and now its running a clean 110-120+. I just want to know the theory on why it boosted my fps.

The logical suggestion is the second slot runs 8 or less lanes whereas the top slot where the video card should go runs the expected 16. The number of lanes implemented by the second slot can vary with the design specification of the mainboard, and the CPU spec, whether it provides 28 or 40 lanes.
