Please tell me your using a better PSU than one in your sig. if not there is your problem. you can't under power like that. It burns up the GPU.

Most 970 need a 500 watts w/o overclocking. Your Asus Strix is 25 watts higher, so your talking a min. of 550 no overclocking.

Guy, unless he has a crazy OC on CPU and GPU he should be around 300 or so, possibly even less. A 450 watt Gold is plenty for his system.

I second this, even a 980ti with a 4790k@1.29v pulls around 400w from the wall, which means around 360w of load after efficiency.

His PSU is absolutely fine.

Yea, even if I ran Furmark and IBT at the same time @ 5GHz I might run into an issue... I've run heaven + Prime95 for hours to test my PSU and I've had 0 issues. Well...that is till my card died but that's a different reason.

I'll likely be upgrading to a 6700k in the near future <1yr with a m.2 Sandisk X400 512GB drive... same 970 hopefully if this one isn't a dud.

Interesting to say the least. I remember when I flashed an AMD 5850 With an OC BIOS. After that nothing on screen..but the PC was booting. I then took the card and put it in another system, Bam it was working fine. I then put it back in my original system and again no picture.

 

I reset the CMOS, Re-flashed the Mobo BIOS but nothing worked. So I put it back into my second system and flashed the stock BIOS back to the 5850, put it back in my original system and it was working fine again. No matter how hard I tried my original system refused to show anything on screen with that custom BIOS.

 

Both systems had the same PSU so it was not a power issue and generally speaking would not be anyway as it used minimal power on posting.

 

I never did solve it...it was one of those random gremlins that did not follow any logic. You get it sometimes :( 

 

I hope you get a better card back !

I pick up the card tonight. If it's in good working order, I'll be selling it in lieu of getting a 1060. I really like the power consumption numbers on the 1060 and I think with custom bios the 1060 can really really out perform the 970 by a huge number and still consume like 50w less. Plus newegg has a $25 off coupon if you use paypal till Aug1.

New card is brand new! Still in factory box, sealed and ready for me!!!!

Card is golden! Well...compared to my last one it is. Does 1530MHz with no voltage bump. Best part is it only gets upto 55C on a custom fan curve. lol.

Still tweaking but this thing is great!!!!

Awesome! Glad to hear!

The GTX 1060 looks like a really good card, it does really well against the GTX 980 and it has more VRAM, its a shame it doesn't have SLI fingers though.
