    Issue

    I have a Rampage IV and I just noticed my setup is running 16/8 instead of 16/16. I know it was running correctly before but I have upgraded my bios since then, I am thinking this is when it changed? But I am not sure to be honest. BIOS reports 16/8 as does GPUZ w/fullscreen. Cards are in the proper slots for 16/16 I do have my sound card in x1 slot. Can this be bridge related? BIOS is also set for GEN3 but I also tried GEN2 and same result. Running most current bios from asus.com 4804

    I'm just wondering because I've noticed that Cpuz reports Link Width @ 1 and Max @ 16 on my system.
    I could have sworn that it used to say Link Width @ 16 and Max @ 16.

    I see, I know I had it running 16x on both a while back, the most recent changes I made were just BIOS updates a few months ago and today I flashed the newest.

    I would be concerned about the bios reporting that. I would believe what the bios reports before software.

    Yea, like I mentioned in the OP GPUZ reports 8X as well even full screen test for sli

    The 1X slot should not be causing the problem right? I have my soundcard installed there.
