Don't really have the luxury of trying it in another system. I might just buy a new PSU tomorrow and see if that works. I have had this PSU for like 10 years so it's pretty old.
I'm going to try swapping one of the 6 to 8 pins with the adapter for the 2x6 to 8 pin since I have it. I tried to hit up Fry's Electronics today but they didn't have the cable so who knows.
If I lower down the Power Target to 80% it seems to do okay, but it should work at the stock "gaming" setting. That's what I paid for. So I have a ticket in with Asus and waiting to hear back from them.
Anyone have a good suggestion for a PSU? 750W is probably way more than enough for me. Just one card in my system.
I'll let you guys know how it goes with swapping out the cables.
Is there a guide on OCN for the Asus GPU Tweak II utility?
