I was working on a system upgrade yesterday and everything seems to be going fine with the new CPU/MB. I've even been able to overclock the system but I have an issue with dedicated GPU.
What happens is when I power it up (GTX 650 TI OC from MSI) the fan starts to spin and then stops. It never actually spins whether in the BIOS or Windows. I've tried upgrading drivers, moving the GPU from the main PCI 3.0 slot to the secondary PCI 2.0 slot, tried using the 6 pin power cable and the 6+2 pin power cable without any luck. So I'm stuck as to why the card works (I was even able to start a benchmark but quickly quit the GPU benchmark as the temps climbed into the high 80s) but the GPU fan won't keep spinning. The fact that it tries to spin makes me think the fan should still be working.
I don't think it's ESD as I was careful to ground myself to the case and I spent a hell of a lot more time with the MB (MSI Z97 PC Mate) and the CPU (Pentium G3258) than I did with the video card.
So I'm looking for suggestions as right now I'm running off the IGP (thanks Intel.)
Can't use an Overdrive/MSI Afterburner to set the Fans to a higher speed? My 7950 defaulted to 30%, and I could barely hear it. Cranking it up to 65% makes it audible.
