Yes i removed the old drivers and installed both 8 pin connectors.
Still no change, fan keeps spinning at full speed and no image.
Is it possible that the card isnt compatible with the mobo?

There are so many things it can be. Im currently trying to find someones timing for my 6790 to try since Im having issues with that. Did you do the basics (like they asked, did you remove the old graphics drivers etc etc) What have you tried?

The best way to tackle a problem like this, is go somewhere that you have access to a bunch of other pc parts that will fit your computer.

You will need another GPU and another PC with a working one. so ie you just need another PC

Swap out each part, starting with the GPU putting it into the working pc, if it does not work then the card is likely dead.

If it does, they its some other issue, once you've done this come back with results and we can help further.
 


I recommend you overclock it to at least 3ghz to minimize your bottleneck. Otherwise the only suggestion would be new mobo/cpu/ram.

The solution to your problem is quite simple. I have used this mobo recently and with an ATI/AMD GPU.
Best BIOS for O/C is 0608.
But for your problem wich I had too, you should consider these 3 things.
1)Mobo battery low voltage --- plausible.
2)SLI Bridge can cause issues if not properly seated.
3)Just update your BIOS to the latest 1406 --- I believe this is the solution.Look at the description!

Hope that was helpful enough.
