Thread: PCI-E issues

  1. #1

    PCI-E issues

    I recently purchased this board and everything was running fine until I updated the bios. Now my GPU in the top PCI-E X16 slot runs at 8x instead of 16X. The bottom GPU is running at 16x however.

    I needed to update the bios to support my new CPU (Phenom II X4 970).

    Is Asus going to do anything to address this issue?

    Well if the issue is found to be happening for many people I'm pretty sure they will fix it, Brian could answer you with that. But it it's only a issue that affect you then it would be harder. Maybe you could try to flash again and reset the bios? only to see.

    This happened to mine as well. I went back to an older bios and it didnt fix it, instead it ramped my CPU upto 1.79 volts from the rated 1.375 . Since then ,the #1 slot has completely stopped working. When I coldboot the PC ,the card in that slot runs the fan at 100% and it wont post. I cant even get the LCD to Det Dram. RMA in processs atm !
    Amazing product other than this =)....Wouldnt want another board till They come out with 4 CPU's on 1 board !
