GTX 680SO PCI-E Expess problem?

My Gigabyte Geforce 680SO only runs at pci-e 1.1 x16@x1 all the time.Should it not be running at pci-e 1.1 x16@x16, and change to pci-e 2.0 x16@x16 when the gpu is under load?

  1. do you have other cards using the pci-e lanes? or perhaps extra sata ports that might use them?

    but im also thinking that having that kind of board should have more than enough lanes and should not resort to limiting the lanes electronically. i'm just guessing here lol
  2. its running like it should. Read before you buy:
    PCI Express 3.0 x16 cards supported:2 (x16/0 or x8/x8)

    This is the Z77 standard.
  3. ensure that your card is plugged in to the 1st pci-e slot.
    update your bios

    if you are having no problem in any games....its running fine
