    its not an issue since you wont saturate the bus anyway

    EDIT: didnt see the board, you might have them in the wrong PCIE slots? but even still doesnt matter as i said you wont saturate the bus anyway, also anymore info you can provide would be nice.

    I.E
    what have you tried already?, etc.


    For both X16 you have to be in the slots labeled PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 which may not be right next to each other, look at the mobo and they will be labeled

    From GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-X58A-OC (rev. 1.0) Specifications

    1. 2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x16 (PCIEX16_1, PCIEX16_2)
      * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16_1 slot; if you are installing two PCI Express graphics cards, it is recommended that you install them in the PCIEX16_1 and PCIEX16_2 slots.

    2. 2 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8_1, PCIEX8_2)
      * The PCIEX8_1 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16_1 slot and the PCIEX8_2 slot with PCIEX16_2. The PCIEX16_1/PCIEX16_2 slot will operate at up to x8 mode when the PCIEX8_1/PCIEX8_2 is populated.
      (The PCIEX16_1, PCIEX16_2, PCIEX8_1, and PCIEX8_2 slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)

    3. 1 x PCI slot

    This information should also be in your motherboard user manual.
    Unfortunately I know the spec of the motherboard.
    I was interested in finding a solution to the problem of reduced speed on slots 1 and 2

    do yo have anything populating the other PCIE slots? these are all guesses here from what you have given.

    So from the provided info we can only assume you have something populating the other slots which means that it will automatically drop to x8. This as I said is not an issue though because you wont see a performance increase because you cant saturate the PCIE bus anyway and having x16 would be purely for aesthetic purposes anyway.

    No, only first two slot, maybe share pci express line with other controller?

    Nope, either something's populating the other slots (doesn't have to be GPU), its been manually set to x8 in bios, or its bugged but I couldn't tell you and I don't know what you have done to try and fix it. Like I said, it's not really an issue as you can't saturate the bus anyway so unless you're having issues I'd not worry about it

    I think for controller pcix (marvell 9182 sata 6g and realetek lan and usb 3.0 controllers)

    they wouldn't publish those ports as being 16x and not provide it due to on-board gear.

    how do you know they are running at 8x?

    Vin

    EDIT: here is a bench from HWBot where a guy did it with the same gear... So it's possible... alancsalt`s Aquamark score: 332928 marks with a GeForce GTX 580
