Heres the situation. I put together a new pc and still have yet to successfully power on all the way. Heres the specs.
evga 750i mobo
bfg 8800 gt oc
ocz 1010 w power supply (72w over 4 12v rails)
4gb ocz 1066 ram
2x lite-on multi-drives
500gb wd sata hard drive
Heres what ive tried.
running outside case on foam surface
running barebones (cpu, minimum ram, gpu)
reinstalling heatsink and reapplying thermal paste
The only way i can get anything to run is with gpu not installed. Everything else runs fine without. With gpu installed without 6pin power everything runs but i get expected beeps. With everything installed board lights flash and fans spin up but promply cut off within 2 seconds. Sounds like a bad graphics card but i have yet to hear back from bfg as they dont pick up phones or email back it would seem. Any input or other ideas would be much appreciated
Yup like i said the wierdest part is without the card in everything runs like a charm...i dont just this moment have another card handy to swap but will in the morning...would plugging just the power cable into the card with it not connected to the board hurt it to test?
