Alrighty so here's the situation. Dont call me dumb lmao. I fixed it.
I had my card mounted vertically with a PCIE riser cable. It didnt fit in the first PCIE slot with the armor for some reason so I put it in the second. Thats what did it.
I just removed the riser and forced the card into the armored 1st PCIE slot and were back lmao. Gotta love it
