    Found out that my card gtx 660 oc gigabyte works only @4 in x16 slot. Any ideas? Psu is new and should be more than enough. asrock 970 extreme 3 board does not have many options i could change. Tried to re-seat it, but no luck.

    I had the problem, that i used the lower slot at the start, but then i switched back to the upper one and it still shows @x4

    Could it be a driver issue? Or is it can it be only hardware related?

    Hardware related or BIOS settings related. Reset CMOS.

    Is it maybe just a 2d power saving feature? Try opening a game?

    Thanks for all the suggestions, resolved - as it was dark and late at night and i did not want to wake my girlfriend up by turning on the lights, it turns out that i put the card back into the lower slot and not the upper one. Damn. Now i put it back in the upper slot and all is fine.

    Its power saving feature. Slot automatically down clocking when you alt tab out of game.
