Hi, So I have just bought this Z170 Krait Gaming motherboard and hooked up everything correctly. I have even taken it apart and put it back together multiple times. The problem with the motherboard is that no matter what I do the GPU is not detected. I have updated the BIOs, unplugged everything and back, tried all the slots on the mobo, looked in bios to see if there is a place to enable the slots if they are disabled? didnt find nothing, and also tried different GPU's. I cant even install the drivers because it doesnt detect the GPU. Could the slots be bad or is there something I need to do to enable it? Everything else works fine its just that.
