The 660ti is a super old card and doesn't support UEFI which your new board runs.

Only way to get the 660ti working is either disabling CSM/secure boot in the bios (not a guaranteed method) or buy a newer more modern GPU to roll with that motherboard. That's just how things are unfortunately

I have used successfully GTX 760 with H61 board. I don't believe it's "more modern" as it has Kepler core too.

but I agree with you "That's just how things are unfortunately" - this was back days many years ago. In say more recent years if I try to change GPU in some old client PC I could face same problem, so it's better to use AT LEAST HASWELL (4 gen) stuff. s1155 and it's crappy mesosoic H61 chipset is full of compatibility issues.:)

I have a 660Ti in a Dell T3610 which is Sandy (like OP's) and Ivy bridges working fine. UEFI does not effect here.

Plug in diagnostic speaker for beep codes and diagnose the issue perhaps.

Good Luck.

Try booting using the integrated graphics via the Motherboard after removing the 660 Ti.
What Ram is in it and what PSU?

I've run X 800 XT in LGA 1700
Had a 4070 Super in a H97 and 4690K yesterday.
Board needed bios update for the M.2 drive only.
POS doesn't do over 1600mhz memory though. :(

Sandybridge to haswell, some boards have better support than others.

The AsRock B550 Steel Legend is running a XFX R7 250X Ghost in it, no bios update, but it might help on this old ass H61 motherboard

Anecdotal, but I've lost count of the number of failed 660 Ti cards I have seen over the years of building/fixing countless amounts PCs for people. These seem to be the most unreliable of the common Kepler cards in my experience. Yet, I have several plain 660 cards still in service out there with people to this day.

So to OP, does your 660 Ti work in any other system? Could easily be a dead card.

That's quite an old setup. It would not be a shock if any part just quit working.

Since it's an H61 board with a display out port with the i5-2400 coming with an iGPU, you can pull the GTX 660ti and test without the card. If it boots then the card is likely DOA.

I've put cards like a GTX 670, RX 480/580, Radeon VII and various GTX 10-series cards on H61 boards and they'll run fine. The only time I've had problems with these boards is in OEM setups.

This setup is old enough that the BIOS may have an issue with Bit-Rot. So, I'd take the previously given advice of updating the BIOS.

over 1600 MHz was very rare DDR3. Even 1866 was hype product but on end of an ddr3 era, and more targeted to AMD BS FX crap CPUs. Nowadays there is a trend to try to push ddr3 to ddr4 starter clocks, same stupid as trying to squeeze clocks over 4400 from ddr4 now, when it's tad easier and not so very expensive already to get ddr5 platform.

Ddr3 over 1600mhz might be very rare on Intel H chipset.

The rest is untruthful however.

It would be like saying anything over DDR5 5200mhz is stupid....
