Can you post the brand and model name or number of the motherboard for us.

When using a single add on GPU the PCI-e 3.0 slot nearest to the CPU is the one that should be used, if that is the one that is not working the board has a problem, looked at the reviews for the board at Newegg, the first page here would put me off tbh, couple of the complaints are to do with PCI-e slots not working.

Okay, thanks PhillPower2. I'll return the board and see if I can get a different motherboard, maybe a different brand. Just surprised 2 board had the exact same problem.

Was surprised myself to see how many complaints there was for such an expensive board, smart looking board but perhaps too much different technology going on with all the bells and whistles.
Depending on how much time you wish to put into this, you could try experimenting with the SSDs as in just try connecting the one that has Windows on it and try it in the various ports when the GPU is in the PCI-e slot one, it shouldn't make a difference but who knows, as far as I was aware it was only PCI-e 2.0 slots that shared bandwidth with M.2 SSDs and would therefore have issues, daft as it may seem I would also try clearing the CMOS in case of a bad MB setting.
You are welcome btw
Edit: corrected typo.

I believe I just had terrible luck with the motherboards. Just really surprised they both had the same problem.
Me too but as mentioned there was more than one user reporting the same problem PCI-e problem at Newegg.
Hope that you have far better fortune with any replacement board.
