UEFI BIOS PCIe Settings Options for Aurora R7

Does anyone know if it's possible in the UEFI BIOS settings for an Aurora R7 to change PCIe settings, such as the version?  I have an Intel Wigig card that's sitting in the fourth PCIe slot (X16) that I'd like to force to operate in PCIe version 3 (rather than 2.0 now).  Seems like a common motherboard option, but I can't find it in the interface if it exists.

If its not possible the BIOS, could you point me toward a way that I could force the version in Win10?

Thanks for reading,
Jeff

AFAIK,

You can't change a slot's PCIe version (or speed / lanes).

x16 slots = PCIe v3.0 - x8 electrically (only)

x1 slots = PCIe v3.0 - x1 electrically
