Case is the problem?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

After RMAing my p8p67 PRO TWICE, I switched to a DELUXE so that I wouldn't have any problems.

Except there were still problems. I'm gonna start out and say none of the components are faulty as I have endlessly tested them and swapped with other pieces, trust me on this one.

What happens is that when I try to boot from my first (BLUE) PCI-E slot, I get a no-VGA detected error. THis happened on both the DELUXE and my previous defective PRO mobo. It does, however, boot in the second (WHITE) PCI-E slot. The system works fine in this configuration, except that I need to crossfire. Even after flashing the bios, the blue slot does not work and so I cannot use crossfire. I wanted to try the 3RD (BROWN) Pci-e slot, but my case is too small and I can't fit my videocard there.

TLDR: Is this a bios/mobo related problem, or is my case possibly short circuiting something?

Try running it outside of the case and seeing if it alleviates the problem.
