Hello, I have a Problem with my i5 6500 Processor.
This is my Setup:
Problem: When I use my Graphics card in the PCI Express #1 Slot (16 Lanes incl. lanes of CPU) of my Motherboard the System shuts down while Gaming. When I use the same card in the PCI Express #2 Slot (only 4 Lanes I guess) the system works fine.
The grahpics Card ONLY works in the slot #1, when I manually Change the PCI Express Speed in the BIOS of the Asus Board to “Generation 1”. When I use “generation 2”, “generation 3” or “auto” I get the described error.
What I did already:
Can you help me here? Is there a problem with the PCI Lanes of the CPU or might be another issue?
The only way to check if the processor is defective would be placing another one on your computer.
You could try updating the motherboard BIOS or see if there are known issues through your motherboard maker.
If you think you may have a defective processor,please contact Intel support at Contact Support
