so i installed it and the first thing i noticed was how extremely close it was to my GPU, simply because my GPU is huge. However everything works fine, but when i choose to enable hardware acceleration, after about 5 minutes my PC will reboot. I have checked the temps of the card and they stay below 40 despite rising somewhat with hardware acceleration on.
Could this be PSU problem? I thought i had a well decent PSU for my requirements. Could it be the GPU and tuner card are physically touching causing problems? (i doubt it because it runs without a hitch without hardware acceleration). Or could it be something else like my new 6870?
Lastly, i do notice an increase in quality when enabling hardware acceleration, so it would be great to get some assistance. thanks
ok thanks man, it could very well of been my psu because it was the first thing i suspected as well, however, since trying today, i have had no such problem with hardware acceleration being enabled so will wait it out a bit
