    Hi all,

    i just finished format and reinstall my PC: MSI P6N SLI, E2160 and a Sapphire HD4830 but gpu-z and ATI CCC shows my VGA it's running at 2x. :confused:

    It's a hardware problem, incompatibility?

    Any help?


    Best regards.

    Do you have any sort of external HDD or PCI-E cards in?

    Not, only a Audigy 4 PCI. Thanks for the interest.

    That's weird then. Have you tried resetting the bios and running no CPU OC?

    GPUZ might just be reading it wrong. Try running games and seeing if they perform worse.

    This is a driver issue with your motherboard. I would first though advise that you go into bios and check any of you pci settings that you have. Like such making sure your pci-e is set to a fixed frequency of 100.

    If that doesn't seem to have any effect then I would just reinstall the latest Chipset drivers for your motherboard. In the end, try to reinstall bios if that doesn't work.

    Make sure it's set to PCIE and not PCI in the bios. Make sure your motherboard and chipset drivers are up to date.

    PCI-E Frecuency is a 100MHz.
