Gpu install on 2nd pcie slot Asus Hero Viii-temporary purpose

Just arrived a used evga 1080 ti gtx ftw3,upgrading from a 780 gtx classified!! going to a 34" display needed the horsepower
gpu is watercooled,waiting now on arrival of an ek block for the 1080

I want to temporarily test out the 1080 in my sytem,while still leaving the 780 card in the waterloop
i would install the 1080- in the 8 lane pcie slot of my asus hero viii.

I would of course disconnect all psu power to the 780,and plug in the 2 x 8 pin for the 1080
Without any power going to the 780 from the psu,and just plugged into the 1st pcie slot,
will the bios and windows just recognize the 1080 and not the 780,or would that cause a conflict?,like the bios
saying something about no power to gpu-plug cables in etc

Thanks

Why not leave them both powered on. No need to unplug the one under water.

In the time since you posted this, you could've done it and then turned this into a post that can help others in the same situation. Just try it. Do exactly what you said you are thinking of doing. It won't take much time, and I bet you it will work just fine. Again, you have nothing to lose but time.
