So, last week I bought a MSI HD7950 Twin Frozr card, and got a problem. It worked for like 2 or 3 days and then it crashed my system totally. Somehow it seems as if the card itself is triggering the failsafe function in the PSU (Corsair CX600W Bronze) when you put one of the 6-pin connectors to the slot closest to the display outputs. So I did some troubleshooting and it is the cards itself that is the problem.
The fans always start spinning but since I can't start the card with both power connectors in it, there is no way that I can even try a bios update. As far as my research goes there are several people that have had this issue in different parts of the world, and not so few either!
So is there anyone that knows a way to fix this? Right now I'm rocking a GeForce 6800 and frankly, it's not a BF3 card at all!
I've tried replugging everything with an ESD connected to me, and switching the card for the old ones and they work but not this one.
This is quite a big issue I think and I can't find a single fix for this.
