I have a z170 pro and had tried all the suggestions from this thread
but no matter what i did i could only get it to detect 5 gtx 1060's

What i ended up doing to get the 6th card to show up was put the
display setting back to auto, then plug up one of the cards to my

That disabled the intel onboard graphics gpu in the chip and allowed
the 6th card to show up

What I'm now confused about is the motherboard has 7 slots but it
appears you can only detect 6 cards max if you disable the onboard

If anyone else has this board and have 7 nvidia cards running please
share what you did to get all 7 slots to work

Anyway I wanted to post this in case someone else was having this
same issue and couldn't get the 6th card to work Smiley

Hi.  I am pretty new on here.  Just built my first rig using the asus z170 pro mobo.  I was having all of the same problems as everyone else here, so I was reading your guys posts to get some ideas on how to fix the issue.  I was having trouble getting my rig to notice all 6 cards.  Let me tell you what worked for me.  All my bios settings were correct, but there is a little trick to getting the mobo to read your cards.  The pcie slots are numbered (3 large slots and 4 small slots)  They go in order from top to bottom 1-3 and 1-4.  So you have to plug your usb risers in the correct order.  The 4th small pcie slot at the bottom should be left empty, so the second to last slot will not have anything plugged into it.  After this my pc recognized all cards after loading them up.  I restarted my pc after all cards were recognized and now am hashing away.  If anyone needs more details please let me know.  I will be happy to share my settings.  Happy Hashings!
