So when I built my setup I had no way of getting internet without installing a dedicated card into a pci lane, so I couldn't put both gpus into the x16 slots, until now :).

Well I did just that and now I am getting less performance than if I had left it the way I had before. I have also been trying to find out why my pc won't boot if I change my xmp setting on, or even just trying to boost the ram a little, and I have no clue why.

Any help would be great!

I see you're on a X99 motherboard, those boards had some scaling problems if I recall correctly, might be something to check out, firmware wise.

And did you try other benchmarks like Heaven or Valley?
