card is on the slot closest to the CPU, Link State Power Management is OFF

Well if it's showing that it's right about the reading your getting from your PCIe slot it's running in. Mine shows PCI-E x16 @ x16 and so should yours.

Check to see if you have the most updated mother board BIOS. Crosshair IV Formula

If it is up to date it might mean it's PCIe slot is failing. It's usually an all or nothing however. Loss of lanes is what's happening somewhere along the line. All the red slots on that board should be PCIe x16.

I also have GPU-Z 0.5.3 like you.

Reseat the video card. If the contacts don't make good contact, they will get to less than x16.

Go run something like a game and see if it changes. My old AMD board use to drop to x1 and 1.1 mode on idle to apparently conserve power then jumped the link up to x16 2.0 on load.

Put your GPU on your 3rd PCI Express Slot.
1st PCI Ex=16x
2nd PCI Ex=8x
3rd PCI Ex=16x
4th PCI Ex=4x(not controlled by the SB).
In your 3rd PCI Express it should show 16x
If it doesnt you got a gpu problem, if it does you got a mobo problem.
