Sabertooth Z77 Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I recently just upgraded my rig and I was wondering if it's possible to set my second gpu as the primary. Either through the BIOS or any other way others know of.

Do it in the BIOS. I don't know exactly where, but there's a place to do it.

i have to ask - Why do you want you 2nd GPU as primary?

I've looked everywhere in the BIOS and the closest thing I could choose was primary display through AUTO, iGPU, and PCIe... I was wondering if its possible with this board because my sapphire gets to high 60's low 70's which is too hot imo... Even with a fan profile set. So I want to set my primary as my second which is the dc2t hoping I can lower temps. Any suggestions? I don't have the option to switch the two around on the mobo.

By chipset design the top slot is Primary, You cant switch them.

High 60's and low 70's are perfect temps for a GPU, Max temp is 105c, so to me if it was in the high 80's then Id say its starting to get hot.
