Im pretty sure its just a damn near DOA card.... I mean it has 3 fans on it and I've heard multiple reviews the fan controller just cant handle that many. I got my vid card to boot i think 2 times out of 50 tries? I tried wiring the vid card with 2-6pin PCI-E connectors from the PWS, as well as trying the 2x4pin(Peripherial) to 6pin PCI-E converter connectors that came with the Gigabyte Radeon HD6950. I am very disappointed and fairly sure its not somthing I did wrong, but a shitty card.
