Ok before I reformated I could have it on 8x and faster write. I reformated, loaded the drivers and for some reason if I move the slider to 8x and reboot. It doesn't stay on it, I don't think I am gettijng the full potential of this card beacause of this. I am not being able to run Battlefield 2, which I should be able to. Why is it doing this? Why is fast write ghosted(you can't check the bubbles) and why can't I pick 8x and it actually apply? Take a look at my attachement.
