alright here goes i have a xfx 6970 card i noticed that in under hardware it shows 8x under maximum bus setting. my specs are as following

mother board: 890fxa-gd 70

bios: 1.15

videocard: xfx 6970 2gb gddr5

cpu: amd phenom 965be

2 regular 1 tb hdd

1 blueray combo drive

8gb corsair memory

kingwin 1000w psu

i have tried switching slots from right under the cpu to the next one down and even the third but still 8x under cpuz and ccc. i have also gone threw and tried finding bios settings to change to 16x i cant find anything o the web about the same board and problerm just other boards and same issue they tried the same things i have, some got it fixed by settings and some fixed it by returning the mobo since finding out it was a manufacture flaw. now for the strange part my cousin hase the exact setup just one down on the video card and cpu he shows 16x. and no i dont have anyother card in any of my pcie or pci slots only the vid card.


any ideas would help im open to all 


been with ati since the ati rage 128 cards
