I've been using this PC for 2 years now and I haven't really paid attention on the board explorer feature on my motherboard's BIOS. I am using an RX 480 and techpowerup listed the bus interface utilizes a PCIe 3.0 x16 lanes. However, yesterday I noticed that my GPU is only running at x4 in the x16 capable PCIe slot.
I want to know how do I get it to run at x16 so I can utilize the full potential of my GPU even if it only offers a small improvement ?

Ryzen 5 2600
