Women Love the Rod!
How can you not like a girl who is 26 but look 13?
So I tried to turn on my computer Tuesday morning before leaving on my trip and I had a bunch of red lines across the screen as the PC booted, and it ended up being in really low resolution (like when you run off the motherboard graphics). I shut it down and left as I didn't have time to worry about it then. I get home today and boot it again, same problem.So I pop the bad boy open, test it in my dad's computer, and it works fine. So I put it back in my computer, but in the second PCI-E x16 slot on my mobo instead of the first. It boots in low resolution again but there are no graphical glitches.Is there a hardware reason why I shouldn't use my card in my second PCI-E x16 slot instead of the first one. Internet suggests my card will run x8 mode instead of x16 but that there isn't tangible performance difference in gaming.For context I have a geforce 660gtx and an asus p8z77-v LK.
Started having problems with the 570 again, on two separate fresh installs of Windows. Weirdly colored lines on booting, graphical artifacting in CSGO, crashes, video driver not responding, etc etc. Going to see if I can stabilize it by not playing CSGO anymore, likely going to send one or both cards in for RMA this week.
From what I've read most of the power draw is from the video card and people only recommend 500 or 550 (but quality psu) so I'm pretty sure 750 is fine. Also I think the little numbers on the PSU show that the main rail (+12V) is rated 54A and that's plenty for a 500/600-series Geforce.
56°C is about 130°F which is fine. What's the voltage look like?
