    Oh, I'm sorry. Read your question too early this morning and didnt realize you were talking about the GPUs. I don't believe there are any switches on it, I can double check tonight but I'm pretty sure there is not.

    No luck yet, but I was scouring forums last night and I found a very interesting post that is nearly identical to my issue. So this guy:

    • Had no cards working / detected in the second slot, but they all worked in the first slot.
    • He suspected PSU / Seating issues just like me
    • He swapped his mobo for an exact copy / updated bios with no change
    • Literally could come up with no explanation


    The funny thing is it sounded like his system was running fine and then he bought a new case (Fractal Define R2 XL) and then the issue started happening. Well guess what case I have? Exact same. I'm curious if there is something particular to the case that is shorting the board or something.

    It seems like people never follow up their forum posts when they have an issue because I don't know what ended up happening with this guy.

    His post is here:

    scratching head .........

    The only thing I could possibly relate to a Fractal, any Fractal I've built with, is that they use those black anodized MB screws. Possibly not properly grounding or intermittent due to the anodizing at one or more of the case/MB provided mounting/grounding standoffs/holes provided.

    Everything else Fractal provides is bog standard mounting hardware. still scratching head ..........

    Should be easy enough(used loosely for your PITA effort needed) to check. Pull the black anodized screws, assuming you used the Fractal provided, and replace with bog std shiny chrome plated ones. Again, I know. PITA

    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    I actually was able to get an email back from the guy in question, this is his response:
    "It ended up being a problem with my new Fractal case. Basically, the metal part that you screw the video card to on the case was too high up away from the motherboard - which made it impossible for the video card to be properly seated.

    What I ended up doing is unscrewing the bottom 3-4 screws on the motherboard and pushing it up toward the video card as much as I could. Sure enough after I did that, the card was recognized and runs perfectly. There is no need to actually put the screws back into the motherboard so that's all it took."

    I've spent roughly 4 hours every night for the past week sitting over an open computer, pulling parts, installing new drivers, etc etc etc going absolutely insane. My fingers are very tightly crossed.

    Issue resolved, it was in fact the case (Fractal R2 XL) the pcie mount for the 2nd slot must have been just slightly too high because i needed to stick a rubber grommet below the mother board to push it up enough to fully seat it. Working perfect now.
