I emailed the Swiftech rep to see when the adapter would be for sale. It has been announced but apparently isn't available for purchase yet. The retail price on it is $11.99.

JP, I really don't know what to tell you.
Normally, I would say this is probably driver related. A lack of completely cleaning the system of old drivers before installing new ATI/Nvidia drivers. That being said, I'm sure you've heard enough of that up to this point...
I can only suggest testing the card in the another system, but then again, it may have caused a problem with yours in the first place.
Do you have another system to test your 5770 in?Edited by Frosty88 - 8/22/10 at 9:04pm
