    Did you order a CPU direct from them? Which CPU? Did you get though to the their warranty department and if so did you get some help? What is the status? What part of the world do you live in? I hope they help out. Good luck.

    🤔😁👍 THANK YOU! That makes perfect sense. Asus customer support asked me to send it in to trouble shoot. Asus customer support had me pull video cards first. I now have a nice DP cable.

    why are you pluggin into the mobo and not the primary gpu? the 5600x does not have an igpu, so the mobo connections will never work.

    The SS 1200XP was one PCI express cable short for the 6 pin connector on one of the MSI 290x lightnings. I ended up using a PCI express 6 pin connector from the Seasonic XP660. I don't see why Seasonic would risk destroying customers video...

    You might want more than just the 860 for sure. Those 290s eat close to 300 watts each on their own. I have had success undervolting 290s a bit though.

    PSU is Seasonic Platinum 860W. The case can accommodate 2 power supplies. I may have to add another power supply dedicated for one of the MSI 290x Lightning. I have a lower rated SS660W Platinum available. I've seen some cable adapters...

    Yeah those cards will likely need some water cooling that close to each other. Looks great.
