I have built my 2 month old system on the Asus Maximus VI Hero motherboard and I have 2 GTX 780 Lightnings. I noticed that while running only 1 card GPU-Z shows PCI-E 3.0 x16 @ x8. I have it in the top slot and and it should show as x16. Even the bios detects it at x8 (I have the latest bios). Can someone tell me what is going on? I even checked GPU-Z while on load which shows the same.
On another note, I have been getting very strange freezes on my build for the last 1 or so week and I am trying to determine what might be the cause. Maybe a faulty graphics card? Bad memory? Windows 8.1? I am not sure. What happens is that the screen just freezes and sometimes I get the display driver has stopped working and sometimes a bsod with dpc watchdog violation error.
