Just an update, the white screens and no signal issues had to do with my monitor, must be some kind of partial incompatibility/misbehavior of my LG W2361V connected via hdmi to my V.

Got my new monitor yesterday (again connected via hdmi to my V, same cable too), did countless reboots, off-on cycles, all gone, it wasn't the V... thumb.gif

I was ready to RMA 1 of my GPUs when I noticed my PCIe 1 was running @ x8. I tried to force it to run @ x16 in bios but didn't work.
So I moved my 2nd GPU to PCIe 2a then 3 and the card wouldn't work in either slot so I put it back in PCIe 1 now I cannot get my sound card working in any of the spare slots.

I am now going to RMA my board what a pain that's my water loop in my avatar. mad.gif

As mentioned earlier you should be running at x8 if you're running in crossfire on the MVE. It seems crappy, but it's really not. Even with 7970's or 680's you're not even close to PCIe 3.0 8x bandwidth. It's a little odd when dealing with tri-fire or quad-fire as then one of the slots is running at x16 and the rest at x8. My guess is that the difference has everything to do with the fact that the bridge chip is being used with 3-4 GPUs but with 1-2 you're still just using the regular Z77 PCIe lanes so you're limited to x16 or x8 + x8 on a S1155 CPU.

As far as the second card working - how do you mean? You do know that you can't run a monitor off of the card with Crossfire correct? All connections for video must be at the first card only. If by that you mean that with the second card added you cannot get Crossfire to work at all (i.e. can't set the driver to Crossfire mode, or don't see the card at all in the bios) then yes, RMA that board as it has issues - provided that the GPU itself isn't the problem.

If you look back in this thread a ways you can see a chart of the proper placement for cards for either SLI or Crossfire - that's the way the board works, for better or worse. rolleyes.gif I don't particularly like it either, but wanting it to be different is useless. If you wanted x16 + x16 and more slot placement options for other peripherals then a S2011 board like the RIVE would be a better choice. I know that doesn't help all that much but it is what it is. smile.gif

HUH? I HAVE SLI
but thanks for that information I didn't know that as I have never owned a crossfire system.

Actually I spoke too soon my second card is faulty just ran 20min before blank white screen on 3rd display in turn this upsets the board but I guess I am lucky that it didn't destroy my MVE
Not so bad I managed to get it in and out without splitting the water loop. That's where you might be confused? I was trying to run with one card only it would run @x8 in the native top pcie but after battery out it would run @x16.
the best slots you can use if you decide to populate only 2 slots with GPUs is top and the black slot this will give you native x8 bandwidth but if you add a sound card etc. using 3 slots you can only use the red slots all running at x8.
yes the PCIE 16 lanes with x77 but if I were to use the x79 I would have a total of 40 PCIE lanes, enough for x16x16x8 but no current GPU will saturate a x8 lane with the current GPU line up including a TITAN

Ah I think I got your rig mixed up with another I was looking at around the same time... thought yours was a golden crossfire bridge, not the black ROG SLI bridge I see now in your avatar pic. I'm curious about the sound card - why do you use it as opposed to the onboard sound or (my pref) an external interface like a DAC via USB or on-board TOSLINK? I had to give up my preferred sound card when I built my MVE rig as it was the ASUS XONAR ST - and there's no PCI slots on the board. Anyway, so you're saying that it won't work at all in the x4 slot with Slots 1 and 2B populated with GPUs?

Although part of the problem might be with the additional fact that you're running SB processor... so you're not getting PCIe 3.0 speeds at all (unless you've updated your CPU and haven't updated the system specs in your sig). There seems to be a few things likely to cause issues with a board that's had as much problem as this one has just getting a BIOS release that was stable and actually FIXED more things than it broke. rolleyes.gif

Note that I'm not saying you SHOULD be having these problems... I don't want you to think that I'm saying there's any reason why a 2500K shouldn't be used on an MVE board... it's just that I think they have a very, very limited number of configurations in mind when they wrote the firmware for this board. wink.gif

I have the Maximus V Formula and 2x SLI GTX 680 OC Edition, and I think, to connect the 4-pin molex power as a supplement to the PCI-E lanes.
I'll have some risk ? Or just maybe I'll have positive results in terms of stability ?

My understanding is you only need to use that 4 pin molex on the edge where the front panel connections are if you don't already use the 4 pin connector that is next to the 8 pin CPU connector on the opposite edge of the board. This would usually only be the case if your PSU lacks the additional connections.

Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong.

Im talking about EZ Plug connection !!!
In the user manual, say additional connection for CFX / SLI.

Edit for add picture.

I know which one you are talking about.. thats the same side as the front panel connectors.

Now look at the top of your board near the 8 pin CPU socket, you will see a 2nd 4 pin socket there which is for the same purpose. Use one or the other, not both.

I think the other 4 pin connector, is to give power additional to the CPU, and the EZ Plug is to give power to the PCI-E lanes.

Anyway, I'm using the regular 8-pin connector for CPU, and the EZ Plug. The connector that you tell me, I'm not using.

well as benchAndgames said the 4 pin is for cpu extra power somthing will be used when u go over 5ghz overclock ,
and for the Sli or crossfire i think 2 cards will be fine when u g for 3 then u will need to plug the extra power u can check the motherboard Review on youtube by JJ from asus themselves they say when to use it
