    I am not 100% sure but I think I haven't seen the slow video since I started using both outputs and the graceful shutdown.
    I updated the drive for the intel card, and the slow video thing never happened again.

    I actually keep both outputs hooked up full time now, got tired of racing for the cable. Since I use the computer every day I wonder what keeping it off for a few days would do? I wonder if I'd see the issue despite my room and system temps.

    It's my bet this is a design flaw somewhere in the system. I bet everyone with the same hardware loadout has this issue. I also wonder if Asus is doing anything about it. As long as it stays manageable I'm not to bent about it. I barely have to think about it anymore. I keep hoping I see someone post that they have found a permanent cure.

    really, I have done soooo. much stuff I don't remember if I did that as well, I wouldn't be surprised if I did. I was updating everything I could think of at one point.

    I just know I saw it twice and all of a sudden I never saw it again.

    Are there any ways we can contact Asus? to let them know about the issue?

    It seems it's all temperature related since once the rig comes on I'll leave it running for a minute or so and then I'll do a hibernate or a restart and the sound goes back to normal.

    I don't mind it so much, but wish it would just start up normally.

    Did you just have the fan issue? or did you have the slow sound/video issue as well?

    I know I have mine on normal. I'll put it on high performance and see what happens...

    Just for reference I have a the GTX 760 version.
    I put mine on high performance and I had more trouble getting it started properly than I previously did. I would restart and the screen would go dark which means that only the on board graphics was working. This happened a couple of times while it was on high performance.
    I reverted back to normal performance and things are back to the way they were.
    I still need to restart/hibernate once or twice after the rig has been off or on hibernate for a while.

    On one occasion the graphics card would not work and the fans were spinning as loudly as possible. I waited to see if they would stop spinning and they did not even after switching to the on board graphics card. This happened a couple of times and the rig seemed sluggish.
    I then checked all of the power cables and realized that the power plug to the graphics cards was not connected properly. It was still connected but not in fully. I had moved the rig earlier and it seems one of the cables had come loose.
    Once I plugged in properly everything worked fine.

    If you are having the spinning fans and the discrete graphics card not working, switch to the on board graphics, shut down and then just make sure everything is plugged in well. Then turn the rig back on and see if that was the issue.

    Since the last time, I had been just powering up the system with the fan blowing and then rebooting it which bring everything back to normal. There has been suggestions about the issue being related to temperature and so I was waiting for temperature to get warmer (didn't artificially use a portable heater to pre heat the unit up). *LOL* It has gotten warmer than before and today when I turned on, everything was just fine on the first cold boot up. Crossing my fingers it stays that way until another winter season.
