Uh, keep it or send it back? (Broken card does 900 core)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The longer I wait to contact Newegg (Monday) about the cards lack of desire to post the more I play with it, and the more I like it.

I've never had anything like this, my 9800GT which I got about 3 months ago "wowed" me, now I have this and I'm ecstatic.

Should I keep it despite it's inability to post at times, or send it back?

Not sure how well most gtx 470's clock, but I know it could be worse... I could always try to leave my comp on for as long as possible



I forgot to change the cpu to physx, I wish my cpu was that awesome >.>

Does the card have trouble posting at stock clocks and voltage?

Yes, but as of today I've restarted four times (twice to flash) without issue.

I've yet to be so bold as to put my 9800GT in too

Not sure why - but it clocks fine it's posting from cold boot that is the problem.

When I know for a fact it is stable..

Probably not, the cpu has been stable on this board for over a month.

The issue only occurred once I got this card, I moved my 9800 to slot 2 and put the new card in and it wouldn't post.

I tried for like an hour to get it to work, then connected the display to my 9800GT and it posted but the gtx 470 wasn't in windows.

The other problem with it being psu/board related is that when the gtx 470 won't post after several attempts the moment I put my 9800GT in it will post - it will post even without the 6pin in so the board is giving power.


I should send it back but I already sent one and it will probably be January before I get the third card - and who knows if that one will be perfect - I bought the dang thing on black friday
