Pci express only running at x8

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've just reinstalled my os as I was setting up a new raid config. However now that I'm back up and running I noticed that my cards are only running at x8.
I've taken the 460 out and booted up with my 480 only and it ran at x16, then I reinstalled my 460 and it went back to x8. I'm almost 100% positive they were running at x16 before my reinstall.
Any ideas on how to sort this??

they were never running at 16x but no worries as your cards cant saturate 8x anyway.

Your motherboard is not capable of running at 16x with 2 cards no matter what..

There is no sorting it. Your board will run two cards at 8x/8x.
