So I’ve made an executive decision to plop RTX 2070 video card into one of the workstations.
Bought a splitter
Upgraded PSU to 800+ watt unit.
Received a banged up video card - some visible damage on mounting brackets, but shouldn’t cause any performance issues. USPS did a number on this package.
Plugged everything in. Monitors don’t show anything. Fans take off for a second and then stop.
From what I am reading, fans only spin when card is hot. So I have no idea if the video card is working or if it’s not getting enough power... or if the card is damaged.
I’ve ordered some sata to 6/8 pin power adapters. Coming tomorrow... but I am guessing card is damaged.
What say you? How do I tell if the card has enough power?
Shouldn’t I see some boot up pictures from a video card that might not yet have the drivers installed? I think it should.
