Are you sure the cables are good?

Try plugging in just one card using each cable to see if one of them (or both) are bad.

To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people simply exist.

I have been wrestling with the same issue. I can run the card plugged into the MB socket, put the 16-16 extender inline and the issue comes back.  

not sure what is the reasoning behind the issue but I am currently stuck using 3 1x-16x ribbons and the cards behave properly

I really hope someone can figure this out, having one in the Mb socket is overlapping my 5th port so i have one of this cards sitting on the damn shelf

not a solution but a work around, since having them running they perform wonderfully
