  1. Have you tried updating the BIOS?

    I thought about it but there is only 1 bios available for this mobo.. F1 ( FIRST RELEASE)
  3. First off, your running the second card in a PCI-e x4 slot.
    You do not WANT the card to work as it will drop your performance massively by holding back your other 280x.

    So no point in even trying to fix your issue.

    My bad, leaving the performance to the side just a bit, could this card work and a riser cable or something?

    Thanks
