How to Use GPU (to fullest positional) with Broken PCIE MOBO?

Hello All,

          I am new to the LTT Forum but frequently watch all the LMG videos etc. on youtube. I will make use as few words as possible to describe my issue and i'm hoping there are creative solutions, as i currently can't figure out the best.

 

-I am trying to make a computer for my friend to game on.
-I have an old MOBO that is 6700K compatible (I forget the socket type 1151 maybe?)

-The Board functions perfectly EXCEPT the 1x PCIE-16 slot.

          -I use to have a salt lamp on top of my PC - and long and behold in the summer it starts to sweat and it eventually made its way into the PCIE pins and BLAM its Fawked now (tried cleaning and fixing pins too much                    corrosion.

-Is there any other way to salvage this MOBO by using another methodology to hook up a GPU to it? If so, I can build my friend a machine with this board. (also there is no discrete Display I/O on the Mobo)

 

Any suggestions? 

 

Thank you.

get a second hand mobo, or just get a newer platform like 1151 v2 or am4

depends on the motherboard, if there is one, you can use the 8x slot, or maybe even another 16x slot

What's the motheboard model?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Glad to see the volume on this post:

Just to give some more details and answer questions:

 

-Trying to create a super budget build for my buddy 

          -yes we can go out and procure a new 1151 MOBO or better (previously using a 6700K CPU on it) but need $$$ for other components

 

-Mobo is 3 years old now and not eligible for RMA or anything like that. It came from a DELL tower that was on sale during X-mas. Only reason i bought it is i had a bunch of coupon codes and it came with a 980-ti (when they were hot) for 1K [mind blowing deal at the time]

 

- Not sure if this is the exact board but this one is very similar (to my recollection) [Just wanted to give some reference to the design]

Would i use some sort of adjunct card to a allow a full sized GPU to function off this port? Can you link me an example? What is the approx. performance loss %?

The performance loss is in the single digits, if it even exists. 8x is fine for graphics.

You can use the 8x pci-e slot, no gpu right now need more than 8x.
