gtx 980 issues
show user profile  digs
So i just bought a gtx 980 and can't get it to work

I was using a 590 - plugging that back in everything is fine

mobo - p9x79 deluxe
850w power supply
i7 3930k

* when I plug in the 980, my mobo's boot device LED comes on / won't turn off

I've tried to switch pcie slots, I swapped ram positions, took out the mobo's battery for a few minutes, changed the graphics card's power cables and nothing works - every time i start up my machine with the 980 i can't even get to bios

I'm going to post on tom's but i know some of you know your shit

any ideas?

Pretty sure it is not a power issue.
the GTX 980 actually consumes less than half power than the GTX 590
You might have a defective unit.
Do you even get to try POST?
or it just doesn't boot up at all?
