So I have a huge problem with my case / card / motherboard.
The second slot feels to be deeper in the case. The card bracket hits the mount on the case and won't let me insert the card fully into the slot (or so it feels). It also appears to be diagonal with the far right side of the card hitting the motherboard heatsinks. I've pushed the back of the case in to line up with the mounting bracket, but when the screw is in and I let go of the case, it looks as if it's going to rip the right end of the card out of the motherboard.
So, left side is in but not completely due to the bracket being "too short" and the right side is able to be fully inserted but gets pulled out and left due to the back mounting area of my case being so tight.
It is similar in the first slot but I didn't notice it as much.
I will run some tests and games to see how the second slot works out.
Am I able to raise the mobo off the back of the case a bit more somehow?Update:
I ran Sims 3 and played for a while with no issues. I ran FurMark and everything was fine. But when I tried to run AIDA64 with all system components and GPU stress testing, it crashed the Nvidia drivers again, or the Kernal. I don't know if it's the program or the card. Shouldn't I see artifacts in OCScanner if the card is the problem? But I don't... I guess I'll just keep trying to get it to crash again.
I'm also getting a weird window dragging glitch:
This is so impossible.Edited by Cyanide89 - 4/20/12 at 8:15pm
