Install Intel® RAID Controller RS2BL080 in Asus p9x79 pro

Hey Guys,
I have a Intel® RAID Controller RS2BL080 that I want to use in my new Asus p9x79 pro mobo,
I have 1 GTX670 gfx card plugged into the top slot and nothing else.

When i place my raid card into the slot and turn it on, it instantly switches off..
I have tried both slot 3 and 4...

can anyone recommend what to do next?
My raid card is rated at 6gb/8X
and the board is rated below,
3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (dual x16 or x16, x8, x8) *1
1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x8 mode) *1
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1

Which slot do i use?

Thanks in advance

  1. 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x8 mode), because it's a x8 anyway.
    Did you get any beeps when it switches off?
  2. Hi there, thanks for responding,
    no it doesnt do anything.
    It powers up for 1 second then the whole thing just shutsdown..

    You think maybe I can shift the gfx card down a few slots and see put the raid card in another?

    Thanks in advance

  3. That sounds more like a mechanical / electrical problem. You should check the contacts and also unscrew the backcover und plug it properly in without it.
