Scroll down to the integrated graphics drivers (usually found at "Display Adapters"), and disable them. Do NOT uninstall them, otherwise this'll bring you a world of trouble.
3) Shut down the PC and install the GTX 670 in the case. Make sure to plug the monitor cable into the GTX 670 this time, not in the usual iGPU one.
4) Start up the PC again, when you get to the Windows Logon, it'll probably run on low resolution.
5) Install the graphics drivers for the card, by going to Nvidia's website and downloading the newest drivers for it.
6) Job done.

Evidently this won't work with the graphics cards installed, because the iGPU doesn't show up under the display adapters list. Whether there is a way to do it via windows once the GPU's are in I don't know... probably not as the iGPU is deactivated.

There may be an option in the BIOS however.

Edit: Try this in the BIOS.

Settings>Advanced>Integrated Graphics Configuration>Initiate Graphics Adapter=PEG

The BIOS is configured correctly; its set to initiate PEG first.

I'll try the other option, but how do I make sure these items do not startup at boot? Do I just disable them in the task manager?

The only option I could find was, as mentioned above, under Advanced, Integrated Graphics Settings.
Virtu is disabled
Initiate Graphics Adapter is set on PEG
IGD Multi-Monitor is disabled as well.

When I look at the location of these files, they are in System32. I don't want to touch anything I am not familiar with.

EDIT: I had some Intel HD graphics drivers left on my PC. Uninstalled them thinking the startup items would go away but they are still starting up.

Also even if I am using IB, it seems like the second pcie16 is limited to x4, ie. x8 x4 x4.

For my current board, I can run at x8 x8 x1 for the 3 pciex16 slot. Just want to confirm if I can do the same for this board?

I'm pretty sure it's 8x 8x not 8x 4x

With top 2 x slots occupied 8x 8x, with 3 slots occupied it's 8x 4x 4x.

Never tried the top & bottom together, don't know if that would be 8x 4x or not, or how the 1x would affect things (8x 8x 1x or 8x 4x 1x).

Oh ok ya that makes sense. Even with a sound card in the third slot and not another VC?

Only other suggestion would be to give up the sound card and buy a good USB one

Thanks

Can anyone with 2 x gpu and 1 sound card occupying all 3 pciex16 slots confirm this? This is with SB CPU.

1 - yes I can run x8 x 8 x 1 or

2 - no can only run x8 x 8 and the 3rd pcie16 is disable.

If you have not read my original post, due to space limitation, I can't use any of the Pciex1 slots for my sound card, and this is for SB CPU.

Also I believe x8 x8 x1 for all pciex16 is not a chipset limitation but rather the board maker or biod as my Asus p67 allows me to do so which is nice.

I would love to get this board is I can use all 3 pcie16 with x8 x8 x1.

Hello everyone, I got myself one of these bad boys so I guess that makes me part of the club now? Well on to my question. I just put my rig together yesterday but didn't get a chance to fire it up. Today right before the family came over to watch the super bowl I connected it to my screen being my tv through an onkyo tx-nr818 via hdmi from the gigabyte 660 ti vídeo catd. I got no video signal from the video card so I switched to the main board hdmi but still no signal. I could see the blue leds on top of the motherboard on. I didn't have time to do any more trouble shooting so had to abort to greet the company. I just want to know if I should have seen a video signal through my gpu or was I supposed to leave it out until I got the os installed first then install it? When I get a chance again I'll open the case to see if there is any codes on the display. Thanks in advanced for any replies.

You should be able to get a POST screen & get into the BIOS with no OS installed.
Check the debug LED & see what post codes are coming up, the monitor should kick on just after the b2, if it is stopping before that it is a different issue.
Never hurts to try a regular monitor with a dvi or vga cable as well.

Also, for the Mpower mainboard users with an msi gpu, the MSI 3dmark challenge begins tomorrow!
