    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    :cry: I just wanted to try the other team and it was actually beneficial since the card is covered by the local warranty whereas the 5870 was bought from compUSA so if anything goes wrong with the card i'd have to find a way to ship it to their office in cali to avail of the lifetime warranty...

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    @ puma That I haven't tried yet. I'll try looking for another psu as i used my old psu when testing the card on the other machines. They run great so i think the psu is good?

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Yeah, sprayed some of it on the gold fingers of the card. The contacts looks new by the way as the card was only purchased locally around march 2012. Also tried resetting the cmos. The only thing that i havent done is to flash the bios to an older version.

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Yep, i tried alcohol and i even bought a can of contact cleaner and gave the mobo a bath especially the x16 pcie slot. Tried what you suggested and the 9600gt booted at x16..i tried the 560 in my sister's desktop and it was at x16, also tried it in my office computer also at x16 :eek...

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Okay tried it in another machine, the pcie lane was detected at x16. I'm at my wits end here, not really sure if the issue is in the mobo or in the gpu

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    I was getting tired of the driver issues with my old ATI card. I swapped it with a friend's GTX 560. I just wanted to try nvidia for a change, heard that they are faring better with their drivers. I uninstalled all the ati driver and used driver sweeper to remove the leftover files. Yeah, i...

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Tried that too, card was on 100% load and the lane is still at x4. I was running an XFX HD 5870 2gb eyefinity 6 ed card. Bios of the board? or the card? Thanks!

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    tried that to no avail..still at x4 One thing that i noticed though, when i uninstalled the drivers..both gpu-z and aida64 detected the pcie at x16. Will try the card in another unit just to test.

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Yeah, tried it in the 2nd slot and the it runs in x8 which is more acceptable but its proximity to the psu causes it to heat up on load. Update: I tried using my old video cards on the 1st slot and they are running at x16. 9600gt and ati 2400xt

    Asus Sabertooth P67 B3 PCI-E x16 runs at x4..help!

    Hi guys, I need help with an issue that i encountered when i changed my video card to a Palit GTX 560 Ti earlier this month. I noticed that when playing SC2, the settings defaulted to MEDIUM though i'm sure that it should be at ULTRA. I checked GPU-Z to check whether the clocks on the gpu...

    4870 Bios Chip location

    Yeah, tried reading the label on the chip. Strained my eyes. The problem is that the numbers are illegible even after using reading glasses/ magnifying lens. Even tried looking for large format images on the net. I do know that it's supposed to be close to the gpu but the i am not sure...
