Vertical GPU riser not posting in slots 1 & 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

Bit of an odd problem, I recently bought a Cooler Master Vertical GPU riser kit, and mounted my Asus ROG Strix GTX 1060 6GB. My mobo is the Asus X370-F.

 

The problem is that it only POSTs when the riser is plugged into my third x16 expansion. This is costing me performance and I'd really like to get it fixed. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas about what is causing this, and how I could fix it?

could be an issue with the riser, or the motherboard. does the card work without the cable in the top 2 slots?

Yeah, it does. Interestingly without the mount screwed in properly I was able to get it to post briefly in the top slot, but moving the card or screwing it down caused it to lose video output and fail to POST.

that sounds like there is either a short or a something wrong with the cable's wireing, since you are putting more pressure on it, it might be breaking a connection, this is probably just a broken cable issue, since the cable is under less stress when in the 3rd slot

In that case do you think an RMA is in order?
