Ultra-D + GTO² in 1st PCI-E Slot= Bad

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm still trying to figure this one out.

I put my GTO² into the first PCI-Express slot, and it doesn't clear the northbridge fan. So, I'm trying to figure out what's up. I also heard that the 2nd PCI-Express slot is 2x instead of 16x. Does anyone know a fix for this?

It should clear it, my X800 Pro did when I had DFI, and my GTO clears the MSI NB fan. Weird... also, that 2nd x16 slot is useless. You won't mod the board to SLI, and noting uses x16 but vid cards.

Whoops. I just re-installed it, and it turns out that when I boot up, the northbridge fan stops before it starts back up, probably because of BIOS PWM settings. Well, I put it in the first slot, where it belongs, and now it works great...Awkward.
