Well I was going to tinker with it, but I had to have a system in place of it so I went and spent $100 CAD on a 1090t w/16gb ram and gtx 460 +psu hdd etc, I put the x550 gpu in the 1090t system and it's fans were still at 100%. I put the gtx 460 in the problem am2 system and.. everything started at 100% and then both cpu fan and gpu fan settled down and became normal. ???? i don't know what's going on. Last I tried the 8800gts in the 1090t system and still no video and 100% fans...
Bottom line, I also found an x4 965 be i thought i had given away and now i can build 2 complete systems, 3 if I baking the 8800gts works or I get another gpu.
