MSI Meg Creation, Top PCI-E Not Running 16x ?
I did remember reading something on this a little while ago but cannot remember whether this is a hardware limitation or not. Anyway, I have my very top PCI-E slot (Where my GPU resides) set to 16x in the BIOS, however in my BIOS hardware monitor as well as GPU-Z in Windows shows it as running at 8x, is there a way to force it at 16x ?
Looking at the tech specs for the board I can see:
2x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (PCIE_1, PCIE_4)
2x PCIe 3.0 x8 slots (PCIE_3, PCIE_5)
1x PCIE 2.0 x1 Slot
Now as I am using Slot 1, I would expect a full 16x speed so far as what the specifications are telling me as well.
The only other items I have running that would use PCI-E lanes are 2x M.2 Nvme drives but I doubt they are the problem.
Please see attached images of my BIOS relating to the PCI-E Slots.
Any ideas would be great.
