PCIe 1.1 x16 problem GTX 680

I have had a GTX 680 for about 2 weeks now and usually it says PCIe 3.0 x16 @ PCIe 3.0 x8 on GPU-Z which I have learn't is the same as PCIe 2.0 x16 so I left it but I turn my PC on today to find this:


It says its cannot run anything above PCIe 1.1 x16
My system specs:
Intel i7 3770k
Asus P8Z77-V LK
GTX 680
Latest nVidia Drivers
My 680 is running in a PCIe 2.0/3.0 x16 slot

Please can someone help I dont know what is wrong?

  1. May be gpu-z fault.try to update bios of mobo.
  2. no, no, no. it's not a problem, if you press that question mark, it will fully use the card... so you can read the specs.
  3. The render test doesn't help it stays put at PCIe 1.1 x16
  4. try re-seating the card into the slot, make sure it is all the way in and the small latch at the end of the slot locks it in place.
    The card is in the top most dark blue pci-e x16 slot, right? (edit 2nd slot if you count the small x1 as well :))
  5. It was in that slot already, I have fixed the problem now it is running at PCIe 3.0 x16 now
    I had to mess around with some things on my motherboard
    Thanks to everyone who replied to try and help :)

    would you like to be a bit more specific? pls? for future reference and all that? :D
  7. I went into advanced mode and under the advanced tab there was 'System Agent Configuration' in there I disabled my iGPU and then I set my PCIe to Gen 3 instead of Auto
  8. ah ok, sounds plausible enough. (so it wasnt just a reading error or anything like that on gpu-z).
    thx.
