    I would be trying again for slot 2 first. Max I would try for PCI express is 110

    Voltages max I would try for a few would be
    ICH Core 1.4
    ICH I/O 1.7

    Do not leave them like that for sure though

    Have you flashed the BIOS lately? If not try that and be sure to load optimized defaults and save and apply and reboot back into the BIOS to make your changes again before you load windows. Especially disk changes if you are using RAID

    i just updated the bios to F10, and then did optimized defaults...
    Its really wierd, but here something i found, mayb its can help:

    its from other topic:

    From the manual:

    «5.3 THINGS TO NOTICE
    λ Normal Mode:
    - Only PEX16-1 slot supports PCI-Express x16 interface graphics
    card function.
    - PEX16-2, PEX1-1 and PEX1-2 slots provide PCI-Express x1
    interface expansion card function.λ SLI Mode:
    - Use BRI-SLI connector to link two SLI-ready PCI-E x16 interface
    graphics cards.
    - PEX16-1 and PEX16-2 slots provide PCI-E x8 data transfer rate.
    - PEX1-1 and PEX1-2 slots provide PCI-Express x1 interface
    expansion card function.
    - Coordinate with graphics card driver to set Dual Video function.»

    So I think replacing, or moving the fan is the only solution. Unless you try this «5.2 PLACING THE SLI-NF4 SELECTOR CARD» to the SLI mode? Maybe that links both PCIx16 slots.

    a: I removed the fan and it's now in x16 - sweet!!! 3DMark 06 score doubled!!!

    Now I just worry about not having a north bridge fan - there is almost no space between the card and the motherboard.

    I'll have to look for a low profile fan somewhere like newegg.

    How long do you think I can go without N Bridge fan? I leave my case open as it is.

    ___

    i'm gonna replace the card now, but at the other slot its only X8....

    What makes you think you need a NorthBridge fan? Have you changed the heatsink on the NB, so it no longer has the original, or something like that?

    What other cards do you have inserted? Wireless, sound, what else? Interesting to note that only you have PCI-E 2.0 declared.

    Just for curiosity, saw my GPU clock frequency? I did it underclocked to avoid that nasty message.

    Sorry for asking but did you switched to XP now?
    Asked for other cards because another one sharing the bus could add wait-states, ruining the PCI-E bandwidth.
