Default SLI in 16x and 8x mode help

Well I just added the second EVGA gtx 470 to my system and GPU-Z is reporting that the cards are running in 16x and 8x mode. My motherboard has 3 16x slots.
The latest version of gpu-z (4.8) states one card is running in pci-e mode 1.1 @8x and one running at pci-e 2.0 in 16x mode. An older version shows both running @ pci-e 2.0 16x and 8x mode. Is there a better tool to look at this information? I do want both cards running at 16x speeds.
