Hi all,

Been reading & googling all around Internet for an upgrade for my GTX 960. Finally decided on ASUS GTX 1660 Super (see link below)
https://www.microcenter.com/product...ed-single-fan-6gb-gddr6-pcie-30-graphics-card

So I bought this new GPU yesterday along with 6pin-8pin adapter. Hooked it up but PC was not able to detect the new 1660 Graphics Card.
Checked on Device manager & there wasn't 1660 showing up :(

- I have had my BIOS flashed to the latest : 1.2.15
- External Power Brick of 330W
- Used single 6-pin to 8-pin adapter to connect to GC. Must i use a dual 6-pin to 8-pin instead?


Any advise on this?

Hi, my problem is solved after i did a replacement of that 1660 Graphics Card.
That GC did not fit perfectly well. You have to make sure the height is 4.65". Not more.
Right now I am using it without the panel
