    off course dude... check SYSTEM INFORMATION @Catalyst Control Center...

  3. have you tried putting it in the other x16 slots and seeing what it reads then

    1st slot = x8
    2nd slot = x4
    3rd slot = x16
    4th slot = doesn't fit

    the deal is... isn't it supposed for all the slots to work @x16???
  5. yes, is it to late to rma the board it does seem like theres a fault
