  1. the slot could be defective. how old is your mobo? have you been using that same problematic slot for quite sometime?
  2. the mobo is new i have it for 2 weeks now
    the store that i boghet it from said that its could be becuse of the speed diffrence
  3. the PCIE 2.0 X16\X8 slot isd only for a second GPU.

    so it is not a defective slot?
    did you experince this problem as well?
  5. The (top) Red PCIe 2.0 x16/x8_1 is meant for the primary (single) GPU, so IF you have (1) one GTX 560 and it's properly seated in that slot AND you're having problems AND the (single) GPU won't work properly AND ALL of the PCIEX16SW(1~4) are Enabled then there's a problem with your MOBO.
