After alot of switching plugs around, I fixed my power issue.
Turns out the adapters are compatible with my BFG card, but not my XFX's. Weird, I thought all 280's were exactly the same.:suprised:
I now have 3x 280 gtx's running on an 850w PSU!
Hello all once again.
I've just invested in a third 280 gtx but much to my dissapointment, my Coolermaster 850w PSU lacks a third 8pin pcie plug.
Before anyone asks, I've tried using the adapters (molex to 6pin, etc) bundled with the card and they did not work.
I don't want to fork out for...
Make sure you havn't set your voltages too high.
Not all cpu's are identical in terms of overclocking capabilities. Some get hotter than others.
I can only squeeze 3.4ghz stable out of my q9450. I should be getting at least 3.6ghz.:cry:
Bman, use ATItool. Its the overclockers best friend. You can set it to automatically find the highest rates without frying your card.
It might be worth checking google to see what max rates other people are getting, then work around that.
hey lord, I'm literally kicking myself. I forgot to connect the two pin spdif cable from the graphics card to the motherboard.
The only problem now is the cable won't reach my second card xD
Will I see a drop in performance if I ran both monitors on the same card?
