I recently got new motherboard/cpu/ram, though the PC wont boot at all when the gfx card is plugged in. Gfx card is still old and quite outdated so I was thinking maybe it is imcompatible?
PC components are:
- MSI X99S
- Intel i7-5820K with Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
- 16gb Ballistix Sport
- Radeon 5770
- OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W (Did also try Corsair RM Series RM1000 1000W)
The issue seems to be linked to the graphics card as if I remove it all the fans spin correctly and everything seems fine. When I put the graphics card in the motherboard everything still seems fine, gfx and cpu fans spin pretty fast.
As soon as I plug in the power cord into the gfx card though then the CPU fan spins really slowly for a few seconds then stops, then spins slowly, ect. The graphics card does this too. Like I mentioned above, I tried a bigger psu assuming it could be a power related issue but this same problem still happens. I have tried putting the gfx card into my old machine and it still works fine there.
Any clue what components may be causing issues here? I dont have any other gfx cards around to test sadly. I was thinking of buying a new one but wanna make sure it is likely to be related to that.
