Mining With a ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING II Motherboard

Updated: Mar 21, 2022

My Specs for this Build:

Ryzen 5 1600 (20 PCIE Lanes)

8GB Of Crucial RAM

Kingston m.2 SSD

GPU: 2X 1060 6GB

Motherboard Layout:

My Kingston NVME drive is in M.2_1(Socket3)

I have one 1060 plugged into the PCIE16_1 slot running off a riser

The other 1060 is plugged into the PCIE16_2 slot.

I am unable to get the 1x slots working with this config and I will do more experimenting in 3 days when my 1000 watt psu comes in (Will update this page as the build continues).

BIOS Settings That were Changed:

PCIE 1x Mode

All PCIE Modes were changed over to GEN2.

SB Link Mode-GEN 2.

4G Decoding-ENABLED

On Board Audio-Disabled


Tools->Graphics Card Information

Bus Interface-PCIEX16_1

When the 1000 Watt PSU Comes in I will do testing to see if I can get the 1x lanes to work, I will also test a pcie 1x to 4 usb multiplier card and see where that gets me. Both cards are running stable 24hours+ using NBMiner so far!


You can run 8 cards with the above BIOS settings. Just use a PCIe 1 to 4 Splitter on the first PCIe 16x slot and the 3rd PCIe 16x slot.

Hey! Did you put more GPUs? I'm having white led issue (GPU error) trying to connect with riser, 2 to 3 cards.. any findings on a specific PCI order or specific config required? Thanks!

Replying to

Yes, use a PCIe splitter on the 3rd 16x slot and you can run 8 cards.

Did you finish the tests?

Did you run into a first gpu mines 100% speed then the second card does 50% max.
