    Code 0E Load VGA Bios

    I have a Asus X399 extreme mobo with a Titan V GPU and 1200W EVGA P PSU.
    Works great, no issue

    Just purchased a 2nd GPU, Nvidia RTX 2080 and want to have a 2nd GPU running on my rig

    However, when I install the 2nd GPU and boot, I always get a Code OE error and can't even get into BIOS

    What I tried

    1- Clearing CMOS

    2- Booting again with just the TitanV in PCIE slot 1 to confirm everything still works

    3- Booting with ONLY my new RTX 2080 in PCIE slot 3 to confirm it boots (yes)

    4- Swapping the power card to GPU's

    My best guess is that I need to change something in my BIOS in order to boot with a 2nd GPU

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi,
    Tried with just the 2080 installed in the top pci-e slot ?

    Would be nice to list all of your hardware, power supply/.....

    Will try poking around the BIOS to see if there is something that might help.

    Hi Asus reps, the current bios for Zenith Extreme is not compatible with operating a RTX 2080 in a multiple card configuration.

    This also means an SLI configuration of two RTX 2080's will also fail to boot.

    Someone mentioned a beta BIOS on demand

    Are older BIOS versions working, so could a rollback help? Or a BETA maybe?


    I'm in the same shoes with single card boot as the only option ...

    *reviewers a couple of weeks ago pre launch were complaining about thread-ripper and this card some said they could get it to boot only if they disabled cores that the card only used 2 cores when trying to bench*
    -- they said that there was going to be a day one firmware update or driver ...
    sounds like amd or asus needs to update something on the board too for this card
    sucks I was gonna jump to a 2080ti guess ill wait a few months to see what happens

    I'm having the same problem. I've posted in the ZENITH EXTREME BETA UEFI 0901 thread too. Not sure where the best place to get attention on this issue is. Only response I've had so far is from elmor on overclock.net forums. I see the issue raised on multiple platforms:

    - Reddit
    - overclock.net
    - ROG forums
    - Nvidia forums
    - EVGA forums

    @Harley2000 It's no excuse on ASUS'Ss part but you can use the dip switches to disable PCIE slots for the immediate term. If it comes to replacing the board it's a whole other matter.

    You're quite right. Support has been a disaster considering this is a flagship product.
