Not running PCI-E 3.0?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am having a problem, GPU-Z reports that my 780 SLi is not running PCI-E 3.0?


When I did my research, I found that the Z87-A motherboard would support 3.0 running in SLI, now it will be very annoying if this does not turn out to be true.. since it is running PCI-E 2.0 x8 according to GPU-Z which is probably bottlenecking my cards frown.gif

Have you switched it in your BIOS to run in 3.0?

I tried switching the PCI-E speed to ''gen 2'', but it didn't work :/ . I seriously hope gen 2 is 3.0, because there is no gen 3 setting in the bios!

I also flashed my bios to the latest version, also didn't work.
