PCI-E Card failure?
#1
Hey,
like how I ask in my previous post : https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=7125 - I have connected the RP64 to an molex +12 Volt cable of my 600W ATX PSU - Its working without any pci-e card, booting up etc as expected.

If I test the voltage, my half working diagnostic tool say its arriving 13-14 Volt ... (is this normal? not 12v??) - I cant check the current (amp) but how I understand there should be enough amps, in the internet somebodys say its can be 12A depending on how many devices connected, so I have no other devices on that 600W PSU.

I try just with ayufans image : stretch-openmediavault-rockpro64-0.7.14-1081-armhf.img.xz

The SATA PCI-E Card which I bought:
  • Chipset: ASMedia1061 x 4
  • Ports: 8 SATA 6GB/s Ports
  • Compliant with PCI-E Specification V2.0 and backward compatible with PCI-E 1.X
  • Supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ)
  • Compatible with SATA 6G, 3G and 1.5G Hard drives
  • Compliant with PCI-E Specification v2.0 and backward compatible with PCI-E v1.x
That chipset, I saw was patched to the kernel which ayufan is using, I double checked in his source-code to find, and I did.

On the board, all the LED´s working normal, heatsinks of both cards are getting hot and the LAN-Port LED´s blinking as normal.

If I connect a HDMI cable, I get a signal, but the screen is blank/black (no cursor) - with and without connected card

Has anyone a hint how I can debug with a verbose boot to see errors or booting sequence on the hdmi signal?

Its possible that the PCI-E Card is not get enough power? I have a extender cable for PCI-E x4 (20cm) - ( If I connect it with that extender the RED/WHITE LED´s are not turning on or turning off quickly, without that extender the LED´s working normal. )

I saw several times on PCI-E GPU extender cables that is separatly powered with a normal DC-Jack plug. I have at office someof this mining pci-e x1 usb extender, but Im afraid its not provide enough bandwith for GIGABIT storage function.

I think there are different problems with the rockpro64 itself. See the posts under the linux section.
In my case my sata controller overheats (over 80°C), so it's not warm to the touch. Other users are reporting similar issues as well.

My guess is this is a hardware problem on the rockpro64 itself by not conforming 100% to the PCIe standard. But this is just a guess...
