In Topic: MSI R9 390 problems

Last thing I can think about is trying the old power supply. Something similar happened to a co-worker and after some testing we figured that the PSU was not supplying enough juice to the video card.

How did you figure that USB is not working? Just curious since there is no video.

Couple of things to consider:

- what PCIe slot are you using? Top one or bottom one? I'm talking about the blue slots.

- in the BIOS, is there a setting for PCIe? What is it set to?

- how are you connecting the monitor to the card? HDMI, DP or DVI? Is it the same cable you are using for the 6950?

- with the R9 390 connected, if you connect the monitor to the mobo's HDMI, do you get video or no?

The MSI Z97M supports M.2 SATA III and M.2 PCIe 2.0 x2. It would be a waste to pop the Samsung 950 Pro in there. Get a Patriot or a Crucial M.2 SATA III for example and save your cash for something else.

Why not 3??? I agree with Waco. I would've ordered 10 or so and made lots of people happy next Xmas lol.

Friendly advice: make sure to check what your motherboard's M.2 slot is compatible with. They are not all the same. The M.2 drives capable of crazy speeds are M.2 PCIe x4. The M.2 SATA III drives are similar in performance to regular SSDs.
