Soundcard in 3rd PCI Slot causes system to not post (X99)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Currently I have an odd issue, my X1 slots are blocked by my SLI and if I even manage to wedge the sound card between the GPU I cannot use any I/O outs because it is directly against the EK triple slot block. My only other option is using it in the third PCIE X16 slot but when I do this the computer boots, monitor detects a signal...and it stays black. When I remove the card it boots normally.

I have an Asrock X99X Killer and 5820K is it just bad lane design and a limitation with 28 lane cpu on asrocks part? I have no M.2 or anything either. I can prime now a 5960X but I rather not have a $1000 experiment to deal with without knowing for sure

If it would work in the X1 slot, can you use a riser cable?

If it's drain the loop vs. spend $1000 I know what I would do. Then again I don't have a custom loop so I can't appreciate the amount of work involved.

Have you poked around in the BIOS settings to see if there's any settings you can change related to PCIe slots? I know AsRock can be a bit weird sometimes (I have an old AsRock AM2 board which requires a "switch card" to run in single-GPU mode).

The i7-5930K also has 40 PCI-e lanes available so you wouldn't have to get the i7-5960X.

Is the on-board audio that much worse? I'd probably rather use on-board audio than buy a new processor.

I was trying to stick to prime now. I had went and ordered the 5960X (last one) they couldnt find it in the warehouse called and cancelled order. Bios update allowed post properly and a warning to plugin molex was given before i could get into OS ( did so) how I exceeded 24pin+8pin power limit with just two 980ti and stock 5820k is beyond me but okay asrock, at least it works now.

I don't think it will work.


According to the manual the video cards need to be in slot 1 and 3. If there are cards in slots 1, 3, 5 it needs to be in crossfire mode, but doesn't support SLI?


I though we left the SLI vs crossfire issues back in 2006:mad:
