I hope I am in the right forum for this question, but I am sure someone will have an answer.
I installed the Asus Xonar Phoebus and lost SLI, can someone help me find it 🙂 .
Motherboard: Maximus V Extreme Video card: 2x Asus GTX670-DC2-4GD5 BIOS Info: 1309 x64, version 10/05/2012 (if this needs updating please link me to step by step idiot proof instructions) Power Supply: Corsair AX1200i Sound Card: Asus Xonar Phoebus
Video Cards are in slots 1 and 2b. I had to install the sound card in slot 4 rather than the PCIex4 slot until i get the water blocks on or it would block airflow to the video card in slot 2b.
Power cables checked. Cards properly seated. Fans working. Prior to sound card install SLI worked.
If I read correctly it should have seen the sound card as an x1 and adjusted slot 4 accordingly. Currently no option for SLI. BIOS shows slot 1 as x8, slots 2a, 2b, and 3 as empty, but does show slot 4 as x1.
BOIS options “force x16” disabled. All slots set to “auto” no idea what “Gen1”, “Gen2”, or “Gen3” mean so didn't mess with it.
Thank you for reading and any suggestions you may have.
Thank you both for your help. Unfortunately, using slot 3 with the stock graphic card in slot 2b is not an option. I will remove the sound card and reinstall it when the case I am building is complete and the water blocks can be installed.
