    Asus GTX 580 dissapeared ?

    Hi R-O-G Guys =) . Well ive builded a new System basically its Rampage III Extreme , Corsair Dominator 6 Gig , Core i7 920 , Corsair 1200 Watt PSU and 2 x GTX 580´s .
    Had the System running for a few days on a benchtable be4 i would be take the parts in the case ( just to test the system ) . Yesterday i putted all in the Case and then suddenly i think 1 of the 2 GTX 580´s dissapeared . The Card starts with 100 % Fan from booting and when i enter Win7 the Card isent reconized by any tool like GPU-Z for example . Ive tried pretty much everything . Tried every PCI-E Slot on the Mobo , everytime the Card spin 100 % and dont give a Signalscreen . On the other Hand the second Card doing it well as she should , everything fine with her . It would be strange if the Card dissapeared already since both of them including the rest of the System is only a few days old and neither of these two was overclocked by me , but they had a tiny factory oc i think . Ive had very much Graphics Cards in my Life but never had a broken one so far . Dont get me wrong i dont wanna claim Asus quality or something here , just wonder if some of you guys may experienced or heard something like that be4 and could give me his conclusion or thaugths .

    Regards !

    The card could be just defective and after a few day of use she crapped out. Or you also migh have damaged it while putting everything in the case. If it's only day old I would just go back where you buyed it and get a replacement.

    Well...PCB is pretty fragile. Sometime it can be just not perfect and then you touch it just at the wrong place ( like a women :P ) But my guess is that it was just a bad card and the testing was just to much for her. This happen from time to time. But hey, 1 580 should be enough the time to get the other one back XD

    If you want to play crysis a single 580 is moooooooooore than enough dude You could get a refund on the second one and notice no difference. If a game didn't lag, it didn't lag no matter if it's 90 or 70 FPS.

    Did you try the card in another slot to see if it's the slot that's bad?
