Hi guys, I believe I may have received a faulty EVGA FTW3 3070 card. I've built multiple computers in the past and have never ran into this issue, which I do not know how to fix. I was hoping someone here could shed some lights.
Specs are as follow :
EVGA FTW3 3070 which I purchased from PLE brand new couple weeks ago
Asus Z590-E wifi motherboard
Corsair H150i Capellix AIO
Corsair Dominator 3600mhz 4x8GB
Samsung EVO 970 Plus 1tb x 2
Corsair RM1000x PSU
Corsair QL 120mm fans
Lian Li Strimer Plus (both motherboard and GPU cables, GPU cables light up so I do not believe its this cable's fault)
The EVGA card is plugged into 2 seperate 8 pins PCIE cable into the PSU. Plugging my monitor into the EVGA card shows no post. When I press the power button, the fan on the right hand side of the GPU spins for 1 second then stop. No LED light from the GPU lights up. I have tried the 2 different VBIOS option but both shows no post. Interestingly, when I remove the GPU from the PCIE slot, where the PCIE PSU cables are still attached, the fan on the right hand side starts spinning.
I have also tried HDMI cable, different display port cable, tried different PCIE slots. Bios did not detect the GPU.
I could only boot into windows using the iGPU from my 11700k. Device manager did not show the EVGA GPU. I decided to try downloading the EVGA and NVIDIA drivers but could not be completed because system did not detect a GPU.
Could you please assist?
