The nvidia settings dont show it enabled, and neither other benchmark software. My motherboard support it too

That's some board issue, check your board manual how to setup it correctly.

both cards work in windows, tested 1 at a time or both in, but only 1 off the cards shows up in bios, single or in pair.

Then it's clearly and issue with the board. Check with ASUS.

Could it be PSU isn't up to powering the 2 cards?

Have you tried using HWInfo to check?

Contact ASUS as said already. If both cards work individually it is a board issue.

What is the board to do with a card that is not shown in bios, the other card shows fine. if I have the working card (the card that shows in bios) it is the only card that shows in bios. both in single and pair setup. The other one is not shown either way.

Do both cards show and work fine in the same slot individually when used alone?

The bad card do not show up in any slot, single or in pair in bios. the working cards shows just fine anywhere in bios as you can se in the pictures . I have tested to switch them around . They work in windows tho. I have the bad card in now in single and it work fine, but I can't get it to be in SLI mode when bios don't recognize it.

Then get the bad card replaced
