    I have asrock fatal1ty h270 performance to got same code 12 things. I hate this when i got on Z170 mobo.

    I got 2 GPUs(3 of code 12 error) to 5 GPUs work with this setting.

    - Top of lower Usable Dram
    Dynami to minimum(1GB on my situation)
    - PCIE1 ~ 6 Link Speed
    Auto to Gen1


    i have the sam mobo, but i cannot run more then one GPUs...only the 16x slot is working, the rest i cannot to get working. I update bios, tried all of the setting, which i found here, try also anyother, not helped.

    when i start, only main GPU fan start doing, the rest 3 gpus just turn a mm, but then shout down.

    any help please. i am getting really angry on that mobo...
    Hi When you connect the other GPU is completely normal that the motherboard shutdown and restart several times, just leave it, after that, all the GPU will be recognized.

    hi, only one GPU work. only 16x slot with metal. i tried, test it and after that i plug all other. And yes, it did happened,that mobo did restart few times, ike you said. but i still cannot see it it he bios.., just can not to get working...

    Hi,

    Go to BIOS, set all PCIEX speed to [GEN1], turn off all on-board components you aren't using (be careful not to turn off USB ports you are using), and enable Vt-b & Above 4G Decoding.

    Above all, be certain if your card requires external power supply to connect the power cables. Some GPUs require extra power from PSU. So that's, power to the risers and power to the GPUs.

    Good luck.

    Hi guys,

    I have an Asus b250f Mobo and I was trying to setup 6 Asus STRIX GTX 1070, but unfortunately windows managed to recognize in device manager only 5 of them. Bellow are some pics from my bios config which is updated to last version 0608. I tried wind 10 pro 64 and win ent 10 64 having the same result, no more than 5. Something is missing.

    I have another rig with the same mobo(asus b250f) running with MSI Aero gtx 1070 with 6 GPUs, yes 6 :) and I was expecting that the same configs to work for my second rig but it seems to not and i'm going crazy :)

    For this one, which is working, maybe it helps someone, I have the following configs in bios:
    - 4g encode enable
    - PCIEX_16_2 set to X2
    - primary display CPU Graphics
    - win 10 ent 64 bit

    Any help is high appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi,

    I am trying to setup a 6 GPU Rig. I am using ROG STRIX B250F GAMING motherboard. I have been successful in connecting 4 RX 480 8gb OC Sapphire onto it. But as soon as i go over that, it starts showing errors.

    Has anyone been using this board . I was facing Code 12 issue earlier. then driver crashed.

    Specs

    ROG STRIX B250F GAMING
    Sapphire RX 480 OC 8GB (4 as of now, want to connect 6)
    8GB DDR4
    G4400 3.3 GHz Dual Core CPU
    Win 10 Pro 64 bit

    Please suggest what should i do to get all 6 GPU working.

    Regards
    Chirash

    I have the same MB. Fixed the Error code 12 by changing the PCIex16_1 to Gen1. Otherwise it uses probably the Gen3 (while on Auto) and uses all the lanes leaving your MB without free lanes.

    4 cards work fine on B250F, but adding the 5th card to this MB took me like 5 hours struggle.

    Currently all the 5 cards are active but windows crashes with and without overclocking. Couple of mins after the Claymore is started the watts start to change rapidly and then crash.

    Trying now to figure it out if it's a HW issue or some other BIOS setting needed.

    DMI Link speed and Vt-d. Don't know if that will help but will try that also.

    Currently I unplugged the 5th card and left the rig with 4 cards only, cuz they mine without issue for days.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Okay guys, here's what everyone needs to do.
    I have an Asus B250H Gaming, very similar to the OP's B250F, and I spent >5hrs figuring this thing out too.

    Before doing this, you must already:
    - set >16GB as virtual memory
    - have ample power supply (2x 750w or 1x 1200w)
    - know that one wire from PSU musn't power >2 risers

    Let's get started.

    First
    BIOS settings:
    1. CPU graphics - disabled
    2. 4g decoding - enabled
    3. PCIe - set all to Gen2

    VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the GPU that has the monitor is connected to PCIe x16

    Second
    Power all your GPUs (by PCIe 8-pin) but don't connect them yet to the PCIe ports.

    Third
    Now, connect the 1st riser (monitor-connected) and another riser (doesn't matter which PCIe) then boot your computer. Fire up Device Mgr and PC should recognize two GPUs at this point. Run DDU, reboot, then install the latest drivers from AMD. After, shutdown then plug a 3rd riser.

    Keep doing this until you have 5 GPUs being detected by Device Manager, every time shutting down and plugging the next riser. If you went hasty and plugged all 6, this won't work and you'll start from square one.

    In the Device Manager, go to View>Show hidden devices. If you have all 6 GPUs connected via 8-pin wire from PSU, you'll see your 6th GPU as a hidden device. Right-click this hidden (6th) GPU then uninstall device. Shutdown, plug the 6th card into the last PCIe then boot your computer.

    At this point you should be able to see all 6th GPUs being detected by Device Manager. :blush:

    I also have the Asus B250H Gaming running 6x RX 4xx cards on ethOS. Did the same BIOS mods as @greatauror28 stated, except 16gb virtual memory is not necessary in ethOS. Seems the motherboard running ethOS (Ubuntu subset) isn't as sensitive about the card install sequence as Windows.

    Hi Friend, Try to disable onboard audio and USB 3.0 and put all PCIe to GEN1, it works for me, We have 5 RIGS with this MOBO and works perfect:
    1: 4 Asus O8G RX480 and 2 Asus GTX 1070 8OC
    2: 4 Asus O8G RX480 and 2 Asus GTX 1070 8OC
    3: 6 RX480 Asus ROG O8G
    4: 6 GTX 1070 (Diferent Brands)
    5: 6 GTX 1070 (Diferent Brands)

    I got one of these boards, and after reading this forum thread I have gotten only 5 gpu's to work. It seems that the 5th pci slot away from the cpu doesn't like to load anything. Has anyone gotten all 6 to work after 5 are working?

    Ok.. so I had the same issue..
    MB: ASUS B250-PRO (the MB has 2X PCIE16X and 2X PCIE1X)
    Issue: When I was plugging the 4th card, the computer would boot on BIOS and then reboot continuously

    How I solved it:
    - Set all the PCIE Settings on 1X
    - Activate 4G
    - Set Windows VRAM to 16GB (very important)
    - Disable Audio & USB 3.1
    - Set CPU Graphics as main Graphics card
    ---------------------

    I believe this is caused also a bit by the power supply that I have (850W Corsair Platinum), because my setup is now consuming ~800W (with 4X RX580 8GB).

    Thanks guys for all the feedback!

    There are a couple of settings ASUS support guys told me to change.

    Solved, use that configuration and install in this order one by one the graphics card (turning off the pc for every card):

    1.- PCIE_16x_2 (use it to connect your monitor/tv)
    2.- PCIE_x1_2
    3.- PCIE_x1_3
    4.- PCIE_x1_4
    5.- PCIE_x1_1
    6.- PCIE_16x_1

    cheers
