Default 7950 pcie x16 running @ x8

Hi,

I just got this new card and it is running at half the maximum speed of x16. I have it in the first slot in my motherboard and according to the manual it should automatically switch the the fastest speed, but it isn't. I am only running one card and there does not appear to be an option in the bios to manually switch the speed
I am aware that the difference in speed is negligible. I would like to figure out what is causing this though, does anyone have any ideas?

My motherboard is p8z77-v-lk
card is Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100352-3L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
