Welcome to the ROG forum!

What exactly do you want to do? Reassign IRQs or move your VGA one slot below? :confused:

I guess, just move that graphic card one slot down (second red) and that's it. You may turn off the first slot if you're not using it (PCIe x16 Lane Switch #1)

yeah i just want to move the card down to the second red port, i did move it down but it would not display (through HDMI port) so it is now moved back. i couldn't find anything in bios cus im a bit noobish in that respect. so any thing i can do to move it down??? or what? how could i turn on the #2 port if that is the problem??

Actually, I have a R3E too - just realized that the graphic card (GTX 560 Ti) is in the second slot... Not sure why I put it there, but it was working from the beginning with no issues...

For turning on that PCI-E lane or check if it's turned on, you have to check the PCIe 16x switches on your motherboard... there are 4 of them, below the reset button, next to the DIMM slots. I turned on only the PCIe #2 which has the graphic card, all others (#1,3,4) are in off position.

mk, well i did that furst, and it didnt work. i just tried it again and all good. so problem solved. thanks for your help =]

Excellent, happy to hear that it works! :cool: First time perhaps the VGA was not seated completely in the slot...
