    GPU-Z(0.6.4) show my Graphics BUS interface "PCIE 2.0X16@X2.0".In fact it should be "PCIE 3.0X16@X2.0".

    Devices Information:Motherboard GA-H61M-S2PV,CPU I5-2550K,Graphics GV-N650OC-2GI ,Power ANTEC EA-502.

    The strange thing is that Graphics contents becomes correct after replacing Intel I5-3450 or GV-R785OC-2GD.

    That's not an error.

    i5 2550K is Sandy Bridge, Sandy Bridge = PCI-E 2.x.

    i5 3450 is Ivy Bridge, Ivy Bridge = PCI-E 3.0.

    yap that was what i was going to write :laugh:

    so nuth wrong, it's the 2550k that's limited, it was made before Intel implanted PCI 3.0 into the cpu's:peace:

    I am more curious is that when I replacing GV-N650OC-2GI replaced by GV-R785OC-2GD ,it show "PCIE 3.0X16@X2.0".

    So I think it should be a error.

    Its not an error and my asrock board does the same.

    2 of my PCI-E slots are 3.0 if i remeber right but due to my I5-2550k they will only run at 2.0 as the PCI-E controler on the CPU is 2.0

    The I5-3540 you posted about is an ivy bridge cpu and the PCI-E controler on it is 3.0.

    Now the GV-N650OC-2GI was a PCI-E 2.0 card and the GV-R785OC-2GD is a PCI-E 3.0 card that is why GPU z now shows PCI-e 3.0@PCI-e 2.0 with a 2550k cpu
    If you use the 3540 it should read PCI-e 3.0x16@3.0x16

    As I know GV-N650OC-2GI was a PCI-E 3.0 card,so it should be"PCI-e 3.0@PCI-e 2.0".

    Motherboard GA-H61M-S2PV have a PCI-E 3.0 slot.

    It shows "PCIE 2.0X16@X2.0"means GA-H61M-S2PV have a PCI-E 2.0 slot.

    And I know :Sandy Bridge = PCI-E 2.x
