Default Asus M4A88TD-V EVO

I noticed you article only credits the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO with one PCI-E 16x.

2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 , support ATI® CrossFireX™ Technology (blue @ x16 mode,gray @ x4 mode)

So the second slot is physically x16, but only x4 electrically. Doesn't say if the x4 slot is only 1.1 spec, although if it's running off the SB, that wouldn't be surprising.
