My friend just got the rest of his parts in today for his new build. the parts are, In Win Griffin, 8GB red Rip Jaws, Gigabyte HD 6850, Core i5 2500k, and the mobo is an Asus p8z68-v lx, and the psu is a TX650 from corsair. We've tried everything we could think of to get the 6850 to work. we even used the 4pin molex to 6pin pci-e even though his power supply has 2 6+2pin connectors. So when we weren't able to get that to work, we decided to put a 9500GT that we KNOW works (bought it from Radical Edward a while back) and it didn't even spin up the fan on it. So this has me thinking bad MOBO. We even tried a bios update just for the lulz... and well no luck on that either. Any ideas like bios settings, etc? We bought it at a microcenter so hopefully we can just exchange it and hopefully they wont charge us for it. Id also like to point out... the thing likes to reset A LOT after you apply any settings in the bios or change any hardware... the thing powers on 2 or 3 times... doing some kinda tests maybe? it did 3 or 4 resets after the bios flash as well... but it is working.. we're browsing the web and such with win7 running just fine... it does seem a bit sluggish but i think that's the old temporary hard drive we're using at the moment.
