Re: Pci-express speed
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?
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
