Unfortunately this configuration isn’t clear on the product manual or on the manufacturer website.
Did you move the 560 to the second (red) slot or the third (white) slot?

First Slot (White) PCI-E Runs @ Full X16
Second Slot (Red) PCI-E Runs @ X1
Third Slot (White) PCI-E Runs @ x16
Fourth Slot (Red) PCI-E Runs @ X4

I am sure the Third and Fourth slots are correct unless I got them mixed up. Newegg stats the bus slots to run x16,x16,x4,x1 down the line starting from the first slot. I obviously have experience and I have to say they are wrong. The first two run X16, x1 for sure. This is a Junk Mobo -_-
You must have missed my reply.
The board is laid out that way to allow two dual slot cards to be used in Crossfire, at x8/x8.
