The fan of the GT 440 card is failing, and the software I plan to run needs more graphics memory. Therefore, I'm trying some more.
I compared the list of Nvidia-based graphics cards compatible with the IPISB-CH2 to this list showing which generation of Nvidia GPUs each board uses.
The results suggest that all graphics cards using the Fermi generation of GPUs, and probably most earlier generations, are compatible, but all graphics cards using the Kepler or Maxwell generations are incompatible. No information available for the Pascal generation.
If so, a G 705 or SOME GT 730 cards should be compatible, but not all GT 730 cards. Also, some but not all GT 630, GT 640, and GT 645 cards should be compatible.
Therefore, anyone trying to add to the above list of compatible graphics cards need to run a program that will show the GPU generation, and report what it showed. SIV64X shows it on the third line selected by clicking on the triangle to the right of Machine, then GPU Info (for version 4.53 or 5.15).
This forum stll won't let me copy and paste a text file unless I insert it as code.
Can anyone with both an IPISB-CH2 motherboard and any card from the following list check whether that card works with the motherboard, and then check which generation of GPU it has?
GT 630, GT640, GT 645
G 705, GT 730
any card in the GeForce 1000 series
There MAY also be a requirement that the card is compatible with a BIOS, rather than only with a UEFI, to make it work.
So you may also need to check with whather company made the card made it UEFI-only. Nvidia said that all the cards they make are compatible with either a BIOS or a UEFI.
I tried a GT 630 (Kepler type). It did NOT allow booting.
I decided to test the possibility that all graphics cards with a Fermi GPU are compatible with that motherboard (at least if they agree with the BIOS/UEFI setting), so I ordered a GT 545. It works properly, so you can add it to that list. It's probably the best I can have with all the assorted restrictions on that computer.
