i took this photo when i solder all back .. i also don't why its not work for me..OK.
On the picture, the R17 resistor is still présent, so if you want to get the 5.0 GT/s, you must remove it.
Are you sur the R18 resistor is now in good condition ? because on the picture you send to me it looks bad...
When you removed the R17 resistor the first time, are you sure you didn't make a tin link between the resistors ?
Your picture is not very detailled but it seems there is a tin link between R16 and R17 resistor and may be also between R18 and R17.
Really, I don't understand why it's doesn't work for you. You seem to be the only one...I'm so sorry for you.
but doesn't matter now.. the card now gone ... brick .. go for warranty see if they will exchange another for me ..
maybe try again later ...
thank you for all you guys help ..
