Time to downsize it.

In reply to: No display on monitor

This could be our old issues of new motherboard in old case to an overtaxed PSU.

Let's total up the TDP of the major chips than double that for safety and margin. Are we good?
CPU is 125W
Nvidia 970 is 145W
Nvidia 660 is 140W

Right there is 410 Watt so let's peg the PSU needed for long stable life at 800 Watts and a single rail. You don't have that so there's that.

For now you should downsize it to just one vid card, one stick of ram and no drives. You're going for a BIOS screen.

If this is a new motherboard in the old case the #1 gaffes are:
1. Extra mounting post shorting the backside of the motherboard.
2. A jumper in the wrong spot.

thanks for the reply but the 970 that I mentioned is a motherboard and not a graphics card, but I'm open to more solutions Grin

My mistake.

In reply to: hi

Still you need to downsize and it's unclear if you changed the motherboard. When that happens I supplied the 2 most common gaffes.

I've lost count over the most common gaffes. Your reply cleared up a few things but I don't read where you are working the problem.

Re: motherboard

In reply to: thanks for the reply

Let me recap what I understand about the situation:
- new motherboard
- old graphic card
- all components (motherboard, graphic card, monitor) connected correctly and have power
- monitor says no input signal when you boot your OS (what OS?)

Then the options seem to be:
- something wrong with the hardware (motherboard, graphic card, monitor, cables)
- insufficient power
- you didn't reinstall the OS after installing the new motherboard
- you didn't install the right driver for the video card after reinstalling the OS

It's a 'ga 970 g1' not a '970 g1'.

If your not getting a bios screen start unplugging stuff.

Hdd/ssd/optical/fans(not the cpu fan)/all external connectors.

If no help remove the ram.

Does it beep on power up?
