  1. Now that I think of it, I should have probably just waited for a few reboots. As it was set to "Auto" I guess it cant change the PCIe speed on the fly and needs to reboot a few times to get the correct speed.
  2. that did the trick! It is working now! thank you so much for your help guys, seriously. You made my day
  3. yes it is the slot on the very bottom according to the manual. I'll set it to X4 and see what happens. Hopefully it will work. Fingers crossed.
  4. I have found an option the BIOS that says: PCIEX4_3 Slot(black) Bandwith which I can set to "Auto" or "X2 Mode" and "X4 Mode". Right now it it set to "Auto". The description says: [Auto]: If inser a X4 card onto PCIeX4_3, switch to X4 mode. If not, switch to X2 mode. [X2 Mode]: X2 for PCIeX4_3; X1 for PCIeX1_2 and PCIeX1_3 [X4 Mode]: X4 for PCIEeX4_3 With PCIeX4_3 does it mean the "third" PCIe slot?
  5. Ok will check that. thx alot. As I said, BIOS is up to date.
  6. So you think it should actually work like "plug and play" with the bottom slot?
  7. Thats what I thought too. Simply reconfiguring to two times x8. And yes I am sure. This is the NVMe drive: https://www.gigabyte.com/Solid-State-Drive/GIGABYTE-NVMe-SSD-512GB#kf And this the adapter card: https://www.lindy-international.com/PCIe-3-0-x4-Adapter-Card-M-2-SSD.htm?websale8=ld0101.ld020102&pi=51132
  8. Thx for your fast reply. I planned to use it for my transcodes and encoding storage for my videos as I am running out of space on my internal M.2 So you say there is now way I will get this up and running with the configuration I have right now? EDIT: also the metadata for my plex server is on the internal M.2 drive.
  9. I have a quick question. I am trying to install an M.2 adapter Card into my Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard. But for some reason my PC won't post anymore after I install the card (keeps rebooting without post code). When I remove it everything is fine again. As far as I know PCIe is downward compatible in terms of x4 x8 etc so it should not matter if I put the card into an x8 slot right? Do I need to reconfigure lanes in the BIOS first or tell it that this is a storage device? Sorry if that is a stupid question, but never did this before. All I have installed right now is a GeForce GTX1080 in my x16 slot. Thankful for any advice.
