hello everybody.
This is is my second computer i have built,no experience what soever,just read forums
and did it.
I bought verything for pci gen 3.0.
msi z77-gd65 mobo
2 asus gtx 680 v.cards
i7 3770k processor
But can,t get the 3.0 to work.
enabled 3.0 in bios
when i startup
it still says:can,t find any device
mobo uses 2.0
So what am i missing
Everthing runs smooth as blue sky in sli.
but this feature would be the top of my built.
thanks fo your help.

I think this will tell you what is going on. When using 2 or more gpu slots will run at x16 2.0 I think.
Hope this helps[/quote

Thank you for the idea.
I have read the article a few times,but all I can get out of it is.
That it,s better to leave the third slot on 2.0. but I need to run the first
two slots on 3.0.would be nice,but it runs fine on 2.0
.I,m just curious!
