Diagnostic tips & tricks

This section help you with common things that can help diagnose your build.

A. The Grpahic Card seems not detected when using the PCI-E riser but it is ok when connected directly on the motherboard.

This is a known issue with PCI-E Riser and combinations of Graphic Card and Motherboard. The XWORKS X32 uses a PCI-E Gen3 riser.
With the Graphic Card directly attached to the motherboard : Enter Bios and set the "PCIE Link" (or similar option) to "Gen3". Confirm it boots, then reinstall the PCI-E riser and Graphic Card.
