1x 16x + 1x 8x or 2x 8x ? - Page 3

post #21 of 51
Alright, I just dremeled the thing, plugged the card in and got a 2E post code.

2E => cannot initialize out devices

Is there anything I need to do other than the norm?

You did just dremel the plastic bit and not the shiny metal bits, didn't you?

Also, check that your overhanging extra 15 PCIe lanes aren't touching anything they shouldn't be (i.e anything)

yeah, you shouldn't have any problem getting it to work if it was just that end part that you cut off.

Yeah, my dremel job was fine. I'll go try my 5450 and see if it boots. I'll be back in a minute.

I took some pictures with my phone

Alright, I tried a 480, 470, 450 and a 5450 on two different computers, and they all gave me the 2E error.

I'll go read up and see if there is something else I need to do.

Yeah, I'm not sure what to try next. It doesn't seem like anyone else is having this issue. I'll keep looking and hopefully I'll find something.

if I had any of those risers on hand, I would do it myself Now I'm kinda scared to mod mine once it gets here but that's because I bought the one with a ribbon cable.

I take it, that you only had one riser to spare?
post #30 of 51
Yeah, I just had the one...

Modding isn't difficult, I doubt that was the problem with mine.

edit: the riser did work to rise a pci-e x1 sound card last year...
