Install Intel® RAID Controller RS2BL080 in Asus p9x79 pro
Sep 10, 2012, 2:16 PM
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 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x8 mode), because it's a x8 anyway.
Did you get any beeps when it switches off?

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

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.
