Recently for my new build I have decided to revamp a abandoned servergrade computer. The mother board and case are unknown but based of the Bios it is a super micro board. My system has been running fine with my Gtx 960 4gb running perfect. My problem has been with audio because the humongous motherboard has no audio ports(it can't even fit a FULL TOWER). We went to our local Frys and bought the sound blaster Z and downloaded all the drivers. Every time I loaded it up it said it couldn't detect sound blaster hardware. The card shines red with plugged in and the pc is on. In the bios it can't detect anything. I've tried every pci slot, even the one for my gpu. Specs:
Cpu: AMD Opteron 6320 16 core x4
Gpu: Nvidia Gigabyte Gtx 960 4gb
Psu: Supernova 650W
Mobo: Supermicro ServerBoard 6 pci slots 32 Ram slots
Storage: 2tb Hitachi HDD 500gb Samsung SSD
Memory: Mix of 2 gb and 4 gb Total of 48 gb of memory
Optical Drive: Samsung Super Writer
Cpu Cooler: ???
If there are no solutions I probably just try another card and if that doesn't work. I'll probably start a new build from the ground up.
