Hi @baronwang13146688

Can you look at the PCIe slot and tell me what it's capability is? I'd like to verify you've put the card in a gen3x16 slot. 

If you can't verify the slot's capability by reading it, verify that ther eare gold pins in the pcie slot from end to end. If you cannot, then the slot is not electrically x16. 

Regards,

Matt

It looks like the card is picking up a Gen3x8 slot, not a Gen3x16 slot.  As mentioned above, please check what slot you have inserted the card into.  If it is, in fact, a Gen3x8 slot, then there is no problem with the setup / board, the validation failed simply because a Gen3x16 slot was expected.  Operations should still complete, but you will have less bandwidth.
