Pci Wireless Card and P8P67 Pro

So this is a bit of a hard question to explain but I'll do my best.

Yesterday I got the whole 2600k and P8P67 Pro setup going. The board has 3 pci-e and 2 pci. My network card (DWA-552) is pci. I want to plug the wireless card into 'second' pci slot to get it farther away from my video card. When I put the card in the second pci slot, it is not detected and the light doesn't even turn on. When I put it in the 'first' slot there is a very small gap between my one of the fans on my gfx card, and the network card itself. I'm worried the network card being so close could be blocking the fan from using its full potential.


So my question is: Is there a way I have to enable the second pci slot, without having someone else in the first? My friend and I both agreed it is most likely because you have to use the first slot before the second. If there is anyway around this please let me know!


Thanks in advance.

Look through the UEFI for any settings pertaining to PCI slot enabling. I'm getting a P8P67 Deluxe in today and I'll test it on my to see if it's a design choice or an issue with your board.

Well I looked through it, no luck. :( 

Did you get around to testing it? I've looked all over for other info on this situation, can't get anything!

I ran out of time last night as I only had three hours to do a complete setup. However I do have more time today and I'll give it a shot if I can remember. Sorry

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I just tested it and it runs fine in my second PCI slot with nothing in the first. I think your board has an issue.

Okay thats good to know. It worked right out of the box, there was no settings you changed? I want to make 100% sure its the board before I take it back.

You were actually quite helpful! Gave me the ambition to try it one last time and it worked! I hate magic problems that just fix themselves... so annoying.
