I’ve started to build a Nvidia based ZCash mining rig using an old Asus P7P55D motherboard I had lying around. When I plug in either of my cards (I have one GTX760 and one GTX1080ti) to the conventional PCI-E 16x slot everything works fine. But when I use a PCI-E express 1X to 16X USB riser card I get no image on the screen at all when I boot. Regardless of which PIC-E slot I use.
I have no experience at all with riser cards, is there anything you need to do in order to get it to work? A bios setting etc? I’ve googled the issue but can’t find any information on it. Or do you always need at least one card in the 16X slot to get an image? If anyone could shed some light on this I would appreciate it.
The riser I bought is identical to this one:
