Hello Community!

ricently i bought my new GPU.
I have seems to do something wrong with installing my GPU since it supports PCIE 3,
sine my MB and CPU are supposed to support PCIE 3 i guess i went somewhere wrong,
i would be glad if someone could help me to understand how to connect my GPU with PCIE 3,
or should i leave it on PCIE 2?
or my PC is not even capable in supporting PCIE 3 and i live in a lie? XD

Did you download and run the freeware utility TechPowerUp GPU-Z?

When you run it make sure you click on the ? symbol to the right side of the Bus Interface display field to put the GPU under load.

It does not matter if you're using PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 3.0 right now, you're not even reaching the PCIe 2.0 bandwidth cap. PCIe 3.0 will not be needed for another generation or two. Put it on a PCIe 2.0 x16 or PCIe 3.0 lane and you'll be fine.

Your motherboard supports PCIe 3.0 on the very last/bottom lane.
