How to Change PCI-E Speed?



The peripheral component interconnect express (PCI-E) is the expansion card on a computer's motherboard for peripherals responsible for adding power and processing speed. Changing the PCI-E speed is relatively straightforward through the motherboard's native BIOS configuration menu.


However, boosting the speed too much could result in overheating, which could permanently damage the motherboard. Adjusting the speed of the PCI-E takes time and patience. Multiple attempts are required to adjust it properly and safely.

Now, let’s show how to change PCI-E speed.


First, reboot your computer and press the "Delete" key on the keyboard repeatedly during start up to access the BIOS configuration menu.


Secondly, use the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys on the keyboard to select "Frequency/Voltage Control" and press "Enter" to access the PCI-E control options.


Thirdly, use the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys on the keyboard to select "PCI Express Frequency Control" and press "Enter." Press the "Left" arrow key to change the value from "Disabled" to "Enabled" and press "Enter."


Fourthly, use the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys to highlight "PCI Express Freq" and press "Enter." Change the PCI-E frequency value by increasing or decreasing the value in small increments. For instance, if the default value is 110, change it to 115 to increase the speed and 105 to lower the speed. Press "Enter."


Fifthly, press "F10" on the keyboard to save the changes and exit the BIOS menu. The computer will reboot.


Sixthly, use the computer for 15 minutes. Surf the Internet, play a video game or just do whatever you normally do on your computer, and if the system doesn't freeze or encounter any problems, re-enter the BIOS menu and increase or decrease the PCI-E frequency by another increment of five.


Finally, repeat this process of changing the frequency and using the computer until the computer freezes. Restart the computer, enter BIOS and lower or increase the frequency to the last operational value.


Tips & Warnings:

Changing the PCI-E frequency in small increments is tedious but will protect your computer from a catastrophic overload.
