I've been setting up some rigs using the MSI Z270 SLI PLUS motherboard but it's having serious issues starting up with more than 2 GPU's.

Using Powercolor 570 rx 4gb Hynix x 6
Rig 2 is MSI armor 4GB x 6 - Looks like its having the same issues
I do have experience setting up rigs so I go through the normal motions of trying all the combinations of settings.

- We have new risers, switched out for older version risers which we know are working but that didn't solve it.
- PEG Enabled
- 4G decoding
- PCI Speed- Auto/Gen 1 work, Gen 2 doesnt work, miner would crash.
- Mixed Drivers
- ATI patch
- Latest Bios Flashed
- Windows Updated
- Tried PCI speed latency 92, not working


Sometimes on start up we get 1 out of the three cards with a yellow triangle in device manager. I have got them to miner successfully but not more than 1 card.

I also had major issues using simple miner, it would get stuck on boot up.

Processor: G4400
Mem, Corsair LPX 3000MHZ
SSD: Sandisk 120GB/ 3.0 Sandisk Ultra Flair, both not successful.
PSU - 1000W EVGA GQ.

Getting desperate now as we have equipment for 7 new rigs. I would tip substantially for a working solution.

I'm starting to think it's the motherboard. Although we made a rig last month on this board and it worked, just not with M2 slots.

I did a fresh install of win 10 last night on my rig and kept tge old drivers for my 1060's when windows updated. Been spot on and stable since. Before it would crash,restart,not recognise gpus.

Maybe try a fresh install of the OS and keep the software basic, claymore or whatever and an appropriate OC program. Your settings look fine i.e. 4g decoding enabled, gen 1 pcie etc.

I've tried formatting now twice. Both with and without windows 10 support in the BIOS.

Starting to think this is a chipset issue maybe. I'm not getting any display when I have PEG with graphics cards enabled, when I do get a display its because ive hit the restart switch like 4-5 times.


Sent an email to MSI.

The worst thing is that I have 7 of these boards :/

I've read that MSI has relased some new BIOS for motherboards that should help miner with those kind of problems.

I do not have any MSI mobo, so I cannot test it, but I hope that it will help you

I solved the issue.

When you have to constantly restart due to no display. The bios settings in the mobo eventually change without warning. 4G was disabled by the mobo/windows 10 in order to get back into boot.

I re-enabled this and got 6 GPU's working.
