Any help will be appreciated! If I add a 6th card it doesn’t work. The card shows up in HiveOS, but it doesn’t show the memory type and it can’t mine. The 16x slot is being used (by a different card) and the first 4 of the 1x slots are being used by other cards, so this card is in the 5th 1x slot. All cards (including the 16x) are on powered risers and I am only using one power supply. My cards are all AMD 5700 XTs.
There is nothing wrong with the card, I was able to plug it into an earlier slot on the board with a known to be good riser, and it worked fine in that slot. But that doesn’t solve my problem because then I still have one card not in use.
I have not yet 100% ruled out that this could be a riser issue (either the USB cable, the 1x card, or the 16x board), but it seems unlikely since I have tried 3 different risers from 2 different companies. This is something I will work to rule out if I run out of other options, my rig is difficult to work with for stuff like this, so I’m hoping I will find a different solution since I don’t think it is a riser issue.
I have not yet ruled out a power cable issue. I don’t think it is since these are quality cables, but I will do some work to rule this out at some point if I run out of other options to figure out what is going on.
This is the first time I have tried adding an additional card to this rig since I switched over to HiveOS from msOS. Not sure if that provides any potential clues. I haven’t changed any of my motherboard settings since I made the switch to Hive.
I tried plugging it into the 6th 1x slot, leaving the 5th 1x slot empty with the same results.
