    PCI 3 on rampage IV Extreme. Do I still need to force enable it?


    I am finally replacing my dear friend the GTX 590 to a 700 series GTX card (haven't decided yet on which one, may be 770 SLI).

    The GTX 590 was PCI 2.

    The new cards are PCI 3.

    Was reading in different places that there were issues with Nvidia cards and getting them to work in PCI 3 on the RIVE.

    Is this still true or has it been fixed in the current drivers from Nvidia? OR is it fixed in BIOS updates for the RIVE?

    Or do I still need to use the fix?

    If I still need to use the PCI 3 enabler where can I download it?

    Oh and 1 more question my current BIOS is 4102. I haven't upgraded since I read that the updates after that are aimed at Ivy Bridge processors. Im using a Sandy 3930K. So am I alright? Or should I update to the latest?

    I noticed BIOS 4802 is out I feel behind lol.

    Thanks you in advance.

    Best stick with that BIOS if it is working well...

    Gen 3.0 is to do with the processor not the board or card or BIOS etc so yes, you will still have to enable using the force enable...though you might not want to...there is no real performance difference and indeed maybe reasons not to...

    If you want it just google "PCIe 3.0 patch"

    Sandy-e doesnt support pcie 3.0 officially. It can cause problems to use it.

    If you want pcie 3.0 out of the box you need an ivy-e. Well if you need it is a different thing. as long as you dont use very high resolutions like you get with 3 monitors pcie2 is enough.
