Okay. I'm not sure exactly what to do if I should return the items or whatever but here's my problems and ice tried just about everything I know to fix them. So I'm hopeless and need to guidance before I smash everything.
The Evga 670 gtx ftw sounds like a harrier jet that I can literally hear from down a flight of stairs away. Drives me insane.
And the "heatsink" fan provided with the i5 3570k processor starts to spin about 4-6 seconds after clicking it on, so basically is this delay bad? But the blow dryer instantly works and gives me a head ache.
I've thought that it may just be me being picky with the noise produced but I can't imagine it is widely accepted.
for cpu fans now it normal for them to spin up a few sec latter then the other fans. most mb now have anti surge built into them.
they try to slowly bring the power on iteam one at a time or a few sec after each other to keep the power from spiking the power supply. on the video card the drivers wont see the video card till you install the motherboard chipset drivers. also make sure that if the video card has two 6/8 pin power plug there both plugged in and the 4/8 pin power to the mb is connected.
also check that your running your monitor off of the gpu and not the onboard video. most nvidia video card at power up will test the fan (spin up to 100 percent for one min) then slow down to the bios set point of the video card. most time it 30-40 percent.
if the cpu not slowing down then the card not working right.
