Question 1060 6GB and 3060TI dual GPU black screen

I am currently trying to boot my pc with a 1060 and a 3060TI installed but it doesn't create any output (Black screen, doesn't boot). It works with just either of them installed but is causing issues when they're combined. Also, is my PSU too weak to handle both of the cards? (it is not meant for gaming but will be on high load)

Specs:
  • Ryzen 7 3700x
  • Asus ROG Strix b450-f gaming II
  • 8GB DDR4 Ram 2400
  • RTX 3060 TI
  • GTX 1060 6GB
  • 750W Be quiet PSU

How are you running your PCIe cables to the GPU's? Are you using three; two for the 3060 Ti (no daisy chain) and one for the 1060? Your PSU should be able to handle the load.
I have one PSU cable running into each graphics card. so 2 in total. My 3060 TI only needs one.

Is your motherboard giving you any error codes (lights or sounds)?

Have you tried switching which card is installed in what slot, 1060 top vs bottom and vise versa? H

Have you tried booting up with one the cards in in Safe mode and doing a DDU then try booting with both cards and install the Nvidia drivers?

Have you tried clearing your CMOS?


It could be your PSU not having enough power draw but for those two cards, though it should be able to handle it.
