I think I may have fucked up something majorly today… I connected my new Zotac 1080 Ti to my motherboard (ASUS z270-A) using a M.2 to PCIE connector. I plugged in the riser USB and power as follows:
To clarify I have powered the connector M.2->PCIE from a power source (using MOLEX). The riser attached to it was ALSO powered from the same source (by MOLEX as well).
When I turned on the PC, card flashed blue and refuses to accept any command.
Riser also seems to be dead. Did I connect it wrong, or perhaps the card is defective and took out the riser as well? Any ideas appreciated.
