    GPU running in PCI-e 2.0 not 3.0

    My GPU (Winforce 970) seems to be always running in pcie 2.0 mode. When I go to my mobo settings there are only options for pcie 1.0 and 2.0. From the specs of the motherboard I gather it supports pcie 3.0. Any idea on how to fix this? PC: Asus z97m-plus Gibabyte Gtx 970 Windforce Core i3 4160
