notfordmanI'm not going to be any true help....but, occasionally my folding rig [1080TI] would not fold like you stated, half points of what it "should do". A restart will most times get it back for me, not always, but most often. My first thought was a driver reinstall. Do you use DDU? That may help if not used. I don't want to assume, cause you know what happens...Sorry not to be as helpful as intended. Another idea is to try one card at a time. Answer to what you were thinking? Trying to give your child a great PC experience, I think. Edit: after rereading your original post, wondering if the custom BIOS is giving issues. Sometimes certain WU won't tolerate much of an overclock. Hope you get it ironed out.
notfordmanWonder if the plug on the water block is not fully seated or something? The connector is on the end of GPU with the power plugs. Being water cooled makes it much "more fun" to trouble shoot. Did you install LED sync in Precision? Try one thing at a time so you can tell what the fix was. Wondering about the lower slot speed, this is on the new hardware [z490], right? Someone will chime in and help. I hope it's something simple. We have a great team that's always helpful. https://www.evga.com/support/manuals/files/400-HC-1189-B1.pdf^hydro manual.^
SmookinJoeSubscribed..Just a spectator....Cheering for ya!
SmookinJoeCan you test the 2070 in a different machine?(without changing the rgb connections)Are you using onboard video?(I do)Didn't you say you had another card not have RGB in that same slot...has that card been installed in a different machine...is the RGB still not working?Has that second slot ever had a card that's RGB worked?Happy now
notfordman~snip~ Thanks for chiming in SmookingJ.
notfordmanWhat are you using for hard drive M2 by chance? I'm still wondering if there is something about the bottom slot [speed, lanes..]. The M2 could be taking PCIx lanes from the slot. Thanks for chiming in SmookingJ.
SmookinJoeQuoting ProDigit.."For mid-tier graphics cards (GTX 1650, 1060, 1660, 1660ti, 1070, 1080, or RTX 2060 or RTX 2070, GTX titan), the minimum recommended PCIE lane speed is 4x, before a noticeable reduction in speed is recorded.For top-tier graphics cards (GTX 1080 ti / fe, RTX 2080, 2080 ti, RTX Titan), a minimum of PCIE 8x speed is required for highest efficiency."Taken from..https://forums.evga.com/HARDWARE-GUIDE-Folding-at-Home-what-hardware-should-I-get-m2927907.aspxHalf way down first Page Desktop SystemYour 2070 Super could be crossing the line into 8x territory and this could be why it is running badly..Remember I know nothing!...but I can read...lol
DucriderYes MSI 2070 super rgb inop in the folding rig. 2070 with rgb working before waterblock swap/new rig swap worked. 2070 super rgb still inop. in folding rig.
SmookinJoeWell my points are going to be lower today..power went out for 4 hrs...DucriderDid you figure out why your card is producing low points per day?
notfordmanHave you been able to work on this issue lately? Hope you have made progress, with no further help from me.... Wish I had the answers.
