    Default How can I enable PCIe 3.0 X16 ASRock X79 Extreme 6 GB

    hello guys,

    I've started to notice that GPU Z is reading PCIe 1 slot at 3.0 X 16 and also second slot at 3.0 X 16 and all of a sudden down to PCIe 16 X 1.0 for the second slot?

    Can somebody direct me on how to enable PCIe 3.0 X16 on both of these PCIe slot? I'm running SLI GTX770, i've already downloaded and installed patch from Nvidia, set my BIOS to PCI Express 3.0, set SLI at Nvidia CP.

    So far I don't have any problems with my existing BIOS or Do I need to update to the latest BIOS released Version 2.30 dated 30 July 2013?

    my system specs:
    MB - ASRock X79 Extreme 6GB
    BIOS - 2.1 Version that was released late in 2012 before version 2.30
    CPU - i7 3820 (liquid cooled OC'ed to 4.6Mhz)
    RAM - DDR3 4 X 4 gigs (1866mhz)
    GPU - 2 X GTX770 Lightnings (liquid cooled)
    Sound Card - ASRock Game Blaster (installed on PCIe 4 slot as directed by Manual)
    PSU - 1000W coolermaster

    thanks in advance for help
