Kanuki Hi.. guys..

I'm currently using Crosshair VI Hero and I believe that I'm hitting the PCIe support limitation.
I'm considering to upgrade to this Crosshair VIII.

I need your advise or experience whether it can support all of my PCIe card or not.


My PC components are

CPU: Ryzen 7 3800X


Sound: ASUS Xonar STX II 7.1 PCIe x1

SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD

NIC: Intel i350 1Gbps Base-T Dual Port PCIe x4

Baio73 Just to say that those BIOS settings:


that used to work with CH7WF are also good for Formula with RAM in sign.
Didn't find DRAM BOOT VOLTAGE but I assume it's something Asus as better implemented in CH8.
Other difference... with x470 board I had to keep GearDownMode enabled, otherwise I got BSOD resuming from sleep. No necessary on x570.

MultiDoc Update: after numerous trials, different bios option, swapping slots and drives etc, It appears the drive itself is faulty. The other drive appears/gets detected in both slots but this one doesn't no matter what... despite being two identical drives. Disconnecting the sata ssd's didn't help either.

I've initiated a return/exchange through Amazon and hopefully will have a working one soon.
In the mean time I'll set the system up, install windows and see what i can do with ram and cpu oc.

Thanks for the help and suggestions gents, much appreciated

You'll just need to reactivate Windows.
Back to say everyhing worked fine... and no Windows reactivation!
Now it's time to understand the new board!

Badgerslayer7 Have you tried removing the drive and reseating it? Or swapping the drives over to see if its not faulty.

MultiDoc Hello everyone, need some urgent help!

Just finished building my new system (finally) and just booted up for the first time, still haven’t installed windows yet. I updated the Bios to the latest one (1302) and configured pump and fans and also enabled xmp.
But the problem I have is that only one nvme drive shows in the bios, M2_2. It shows up fine while the M2_1 doesnt show up at all ! Both ports are populated with identical MP600 2TB drives.

Any ideas please ?

System specs as follows: 3950x, Crosshair VIII Impact, g.skill 2x32GB 3200cl14, 2 x Corsair mp600 2Tb, 2080Ti oc, watercooled cpu with apogee drive II

Thanks in advance !
