Install Intel® RAID Controller RS2BL080 in Asus p9x79 pro Tags: New Build Asus NAS / RAID Controller Systems Last response: September 11, 2012 8:51 AM in Systems Share hughdunit September 10, 2012 2:16:19 PM 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 Pistola Pete More about : install intel raid controller rs2bl080 asus p9x79 pro noidea_77 September 10, 2012 3:03:03 PM 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? hughdunit September 10, 2012 9:00:18 PM 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?

You should check the contacts and also unscrew the backcover und plug it properly in without it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
