Ahh... Try re-seat the card, that should help you fix your problem... :)

Not long time ago i also suffering from the same problem like yours, instead of x16 my pcie speed is x4, so i re-seat the card and my card goes back to x16...

Yes, i heard you. Now, even your card already on x16 slot, have you re-seat it again? Re-seat=unplug and plug it again to your x16 slot?

If your card isn't properly attached to pcie slot then it could make issues like yours (x8 - x4 - x1).

I've taking it out the slot and unplugged the power cable, twice and needed to re install graphics drivers

ANd make sure you install the proper driver for your card...
Just do it slowly, even i must re-seat my card 2 or 3 times to get the actual speed (x16)...

I've done it 3, times installed the old driver that came with card....garn back to the new drivers. :(  it's laging in everything I'm just going to go back to x4

Have you tried resetting the BIOS and running without an OC on the CPU?

Resetting the bios by removing the battery?

Sometimes you may have to move a jumper to reset, check your motherboards manual for resetting CMOS.

I reset CMOS and took off CPU oc, still at x1
