Re: m91p trying Nvidia PNY Geforce GTX2070 Blank screen??

Thanks BiggAl.  I read them few times, looked my Bios.(6-10-2014) i tryed changing to Legacy. No Luck. only other setting my bios has is the Order it looks for video card by slot. pci-e,pci,on board. can set that to just pci-e.   i havent tryed that but other video cards i try are found fine. i"ll try that to rule out everything i can. (the PNY 2070 dont have any switches on it)

 

  I So hoping this PNY Geforce 2070 will work. i bought over month ago i cannot return it now. guess worst case maybe different motherboard if all else fails. (if i can find a 1155 board worth buying).

 

Since im Not having much luck with Gefprce GTX2070?  i wondering Since Bios much Newer for M92p

 if i should try that computer.bios is 12-11-2018   i7, 16GB DDR3, right now it has PNY Geforce GT 740. Since my M91p has 2014 is newest Bios for it. maybe the M92p woud work? (except i would have order the 24-14pin power supply Adaptor) if Others have got 1070 and 1080s to work I think 2070 is allmost exactly same as 1070 just newer this year

Just figured I post what worked for Me. i tried everything to get PNY GeForce RTX2070 to work in M91P. with No luck so i figured i try in my "M92p" Mainly because the Bios flash Avalible is WAY newer!

i swapped out the small case (from M92p) put it in bigger case, with EVGA G2 750Watt., And the 24 pin to 14 Pin Adaptor for M92p Motherboard. Gladly Monitor turned on FIRST try!! AND Also made me happy was with different PSU the CPU fan Dont spin at full speed like it was doing in M91p.(id Still like to figure that out?)

Which bigger case did you use?  Did all the motherboard mounting points align with the new case?  Any issues connecting the front panel switches and USB ports?  Thx. 

 

Also, to avoid confusion, the card you are using is a RTX 2070?

i used Corsair Spec 02 case(mid tower) all holes line up.power botton works fine has single wire ends, usbs i haven't hooked up yet thinking might used ones from old case.

 PNY RTX 2070 working great, havent got chance test many games yet but couple i did can play at high settings. or epic
