    pci-e /w gpu running at x4

    Hello everybody.

    I have read many articlesand posts here and heard their solutions, tested them, but w/o any success.

    For four days now I've been sitting in front of the computer and can't find a solution ...

    In advance:
    i7 6700k 4.0 GHz
    Asus maximus extreme viii
    evga gtx 1660 xc ultra
    32 GB hyperX fury 2666 MHz (hx426c15fbk4/32)
    corsair h60
    evo 860 250 gb sata 6 (out now)
    evo 960 250 gb m.2
    bq dark power pro 10 750w
    (None of them were overclocked manually during the tests)

    I tryed...
    - Bios update although the current version was already ahead - cmos reset via switch and new bios update with latest vers.
    - switched to the third PCI-E slot (sli/cf)
    - put in one of my old AMD R 6870 into the first PCI-E slot
    - on power supply switched VGA 1 to VGA 2 (... helplessness) - - run it with one single RAM
    - (SA) graphic configuration primary display Auto>peg
    - starting w/o ssd
    - the interface cleaned several times
    - PCI-E slots activated and deactivated by Switch on mobo
    - cried a little in between
    - removed old SSD, added new one

    Im thankful for any help...

    oh also make sure u dont have thermal paste on the under side of the cpu !!!!
    clean the underside of the cpu itself!!!
    make sure there is contact between cpu and motherboard!!!
