Just taken delivery of my fsx machine, i7-2700k based with a asus p8z68-v pro/gen3 motherboard. I bought it without a graphics card as the pc builder didn't supply asus cards and I specifically wanted the asus hd6970 direct CU II as I believed it to be a good brand, liked the twin cooling fans and the 6 video ports. Anyhow maching is running fine the card installed properly, fitted it a couple of times to be sure, latest drivers and utilities downloaded from asus and the system (win 7 64 bit) just does not recognise the card.
So what am I doing wrong? The fans are spinning and there is a red light on the board but nothing. One thing I still have to try is to power both of the auxailiary power sockets but that seems like a long shot.
So any help would be greatly appreciated as asus support is pretty non existent.
