My geforce gt630 run on pci-express x8 not x16

Hello, i bought and installed a new Digital Alliance
GeForce GT630 2Gb DDR3. i found out that my VGA card runs on PCI-e x8 not PCI-e x16, while the slot is supported x16. what could be the problem? does gt 630 not support x16?

  1. It doesn't really matter. GT 630 isn't fast enough to saturate even PCI-e x16.
  2. Which PCI Express slot are you using? According to the manual, the second slot (the green one) only supports PCI-E x8, even though it is an x16 slot. Do you have the card in that slot?

    I put the GPU Cards in the first one. PCI-Ex_1.
  4. power saving feature? click on that small question mark next to the readout, it'll start a small render test to kick the card out of the sleepy states.
