I have a Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 3 motherboard with a Killer E2200 gigabit network chip thingy.
The problem is that it only reaches 100mbps.
I've already tried a different cable (only one, but it worked on another pc), checking the port, un and re installing drivers.
Any ideas?

Yes to both questions. A couple other PCs have working gigabit in the same house, connected to the same router.

If it's flashing orange, you're getting gigabit connections (connections does not mean speed, though). Test that cable again in another computer to see if you're getting steady green, flashing orange, or both as you seem to be getting from this computer (if should be one or the other).
