GPU / Sata Issue

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Brought a 1060 and it arrived today, plugged it in however when i set to boot from on board it shows all four of my sata connections as disabled, using CX600M PSU going from a 280x to 1060 6GB on a z77 pro4-m Motherboard. 

 

When booting without a GPU or with my hold one it is just fine and recognises all SATA connections. 

 

Any ideas what could cause this? 

 

my first thought was PSU not powering it sufficiently however would the power draw of my old card not be significantly more?

I had a look at the manual for the board, and it mentions nothing about the sata ports and pcie having compatibility issues. Is the new card putting pressure on the connectors perhaps? I know some boards have really awkwardly placed sata ports behind the gpu.

 

I don't think a power issue would cause that - usually, even if a disk doesn't have power, the port it's connected to would still show as being enabled, it just wouldn't detect the disk.

I'd be looking at the number of PCI-e lanes - it might be an issue with that. do you have a x16 length slot with x8 lanes you could try the card in? it might just be your cpu is running out of pcie lanes, and choosing to turn stuff off

New card is small form factor so can't be clamping down on the sata ports. it isn't disabling the sata ports per say just showing them as all disconnected. The board only has 1 pci-e 3.0 slot.

I doubt that's the issue. The motherboard specifications don't show anything of that nature. And why wouldn't the issue creep up with the 280? They both use PCIe 3.0 x16 if it's allowed.

The 1060 consumes less power than the 280X.

Is there any chance the new gpu is a broken one? I don't have anything on hand to test this however I could run down a local store to check it some time during the week.

So I managed to gett this working on the 2.0 slot however it is extremely slow and not usable, proves the gpu is not the issue. It will register that the 1060 is on the machine however it will not let me update the driver or use gee force experience at all with it. And in games its worse performance than my 280. This is with pci enabled over on board again.

Try running Display Driver Uninstaller (http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html) in safe mode. Then install Geforce Drivers (https://www.geforce.com/drivers).

There's a chance you don't have enough PCIe lanes. I've seen a few boards that disable the chipset SATA lanes when an M.2 Drive is installed

Is this still possible even when I have another 3.0 enabled card in the slot working fine?
