Symptoms don't spell anything out in particular for me so I just concluded that it's an incompatibility issue. I think I will try going into the bios and forcing a gen2 on the PCIX 1 to see what that does. If it works I have bigger issues though thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

So have you tried just a 9600 and the revodrive?
What happened?
Do you have an hdd you can try?

Does it boot with just the 7970 installed, nothing else?

But yes to confirm this I drove to a couple different friends and the card works great (making them really jealous BTW) good FPS in DEUS X at DX 11 no problems, and again at another friends.... But back in this system stuck at the POST with no video response. I am waiting as I am trying to rebuild a RAID array that got damaged when I had no video and reset the BIOS to IDE instead of RAID (default) this config attempted booting one of my HDD's (the PCIE revodrive is my OS drive though) damaging the array info. now I am rebuilding the drive.... I think i'm gunna be sick confusedsmiley.png

In your system, you tested the card w/o the revodrive and it failed to post?

1) 9600 and the revodrive?
works 100%
2) 2x 9600 + revodrive
works 100%

3) R7970 NO other cards PCIE 1 ONLY or PCIE 2 ONLY (same)
RED light on VGA LED (depending on if I clear CMOS / drop battery) it will either go strait to RED light no video or seem to grab the card light goes out fans adjust and then back to solid RED on VGA LED.

4) PCIE 1 : GT 9600 ::: PCIE 2 : R7970 ::: PCIE 3 : Revodrive X2 250 gig :::::::::: video plugged into PCIE 1 :::: sticks at OCZ BIOS screen with error. Red VGA light solid still
5) Same without OCZ revodrive, display is illuminated synced with nothing on the screen no way to get into BIOS. Or so it would seem

consider.....

MB works over a month with boring graphics. Only issue pertains to video card introduction. Video card works elsewhere.

Only thing in the whole world I can think of is gen 3 support. Gunna try that next, check back in couple hours, lost my RAID array... really sad....

...............

and to think the night before the card arrived I was so excited I could barely sleep I have been running a dual core for like 6 years!!! Now I have a hard time looking at the computer without feeling sick and watching price is right doesn't make up for it....

It's your boards bios. This used to be an issue in the old 486 days with bios compatibility issues. Try updating, or have Asus write you a new bios. Those Asus boys should be able to replicate your issue... that is if they want your business. Otherwise return that board and get a different make.

You may be right I have filed tickets with ASUS and XFX, detailing everything a few days back. I don't think the pigeon made it to them yet tho j/k as I have only got one email back from XFX asking what drivers I was using !!! sorry to say but DUH I havn't seen any video yet !!! Plus I detailed how it works elsewhere. Ohh well I am getting testy. Sorry everyone, just really extra sucks for me cause the card was 640 dollars (only vendor willing to ship to Canada). Paid 80 shipping, then the Canadian boarder dinged my another cool 100$... But I said hey that's ok it's cutting edge!!! Now I'm bleeding on the floor, cut to close to my wallet.

"Btw, it's PCIE not PCIX."

I wrote it right the first time and switched it because it looked wrong...
