Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:14:02 PM Any ideas? Those that mean if there is a second card added it will run at 8X or is t running at 8X? Maziar August 18, 2010 12:16:12 PM Before changing the settings in the BIOS,was it reporting 16x ? Also try testing it on another PCI-E slot Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:22:22 PM Maziar said:Before changing the settings in the BIOS,was it reporting 16x ? Also try testing it on another PCI-E slot Don't know what it said. And my second slot is an 8X slot so what would be the point? Best solution Maziar August 18, 2010 12:34:16 PM Share hmm,i think either your motherboard or VGA has problems,can you test your card in another system ? Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:37:08 PM No sorry Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:38:26 PM Say if in CPU-Z it says the link is at 8X is it running at 8X? Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:45:34 PM Asus did include one of those VGA switch cards but it disables my card and puts in the integrated GPU. Userremoved August 18, 2010 12:56:09 PM UGH! I found a solution on the Asus forums: The VGA card goes in the top PCI e slot and GPU goes in the blue PCI e slot. Thanks for all the help thought.

Maziar August 18, 2010 1:14:39 PM Is it solved then ? you said that you tested it in both PCI-E slots and both reported 8x, so now is it reporting correctly ? Userremoved August 18, 2010 1:54:51 PM Yes it's fixed GPU-Z and CPU-Z now report 16X Maziar August 18, 2010 2:56:36 PM Glad to hear it Can't find your answer ? Ask !
