Windows 7: Vid card not running at full x16 speed.

Well I ran an occt test on my dfi board with my new psu and new video card. I just now got to check the results. (The computer had restarted as well)

Here's the files that it left. What's with the drop after 30 min or so?

edit: Thanks Ram... I have removed and reinstalled the drivers plenty of times. I even ended up reinstalling windows! Nothing seems to be narrowing it down!

double edit: I'm not able to swap the psu with my nuuo - the misses wants to play her sims 3 tonight lol silly valentines day!

Bumping with new information. I use a coolmax psu tester and the -5v light didn't come on. I can't find anything that says this leads to a bad psu, but I can't find anything saying it's ok either.

12volt amperage could be better on that psu, but it should be sufficient for a stable system.

Ok. So the mobo goes back! I'll keep you guys posted on what happens when I get the new one.

Ok, so I hate to bump this thread and keep babbling... but... tonight I came home and put everything back together because I wanted to test the ram one last time. I had the mobo ready to pack up in a brown box to ship. So I literally reassembled the entire thing. Everything seems to run perfect. After a couple of reboots (just to make sure nothing changed) I ran occt for 1 hr came out fine. ran prime95 for 1hr 30 min or so and 0 errors and no bsods or anything. So it seems as though I did not have my processor set just right. Although it appeared to be.

So for now I will leave this thread in peace since I seem to have fixed my own problem. Thank you all so VERY much for any input that was given. Thanks so much guys =D

If you read the entire thread you'd see the OP has basically done what you suggested a few times. Hasn't worked.

You shouldn't have to fix power issues by removing and replacing the video card all the time. The fact that this is necessary says there is a major hardware issue that needs addressing.

In short – under normal operating conditions, that step isn’t a requirement.
I read the entire thread, I thought it was worth posting. I'm well aware of the bug and the underlying issue. I prefer my post be taken at face value by the OP, nothing more..

Anyway glad it's fixed.
