Nvidia Geforce 760 Ti not working with Gigabyte X99P-SLI motherboard and Intel core i7 6800k processor

Finally upgrading the firmware of the video card worked for me. - http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-2288384/upgrade-gpu-bios.html
Additionally I would like to add a peculiar thing about the motherboard. The other graphics cards which were working with it were only working when the RAM stick (I had only 1  RAM module) was installed in 7th slot (DDR4_7_1D). The motherboard's manual says that a single ram module should be installed in slot 3 (DDR4_3_1B). This information in the manual is wrong.

I am trying to assemble a new system for a friend. Following is the configuration.

MB - Gigabyte X99P-SLI

CPU - Intel 6800 k
PSU - Cooler master V1000

 

The graphics card which I am trying to attach is Nvidia 760 Ti. After attaching the card, and booting the machine, I am unable to see anything on monitor. It simply goes to sleep because of no input.

The card works absolutely fine on my computer which has ASUS Maximus VII Formula Motherboard, along with Intel 4790K CPU, and Antec 1300W PSU.

I also have checked by swapping the PSU from my computer (ASUS 1300W) to his (which had CM V1000 originally). I have also tried different cables.

The BIOS on the friends computer is also the latest.

 

What should I do?

 

EDIT - I have tried attaching it to different graphics card, no gain.

I borrowed Geforce GTX Titan from another friend, and that graphics card works absolutely fine.

 

How can a graphics card not be compatible for a MB or a CPU? As long as both the card manufacturer, and the MB/CPU manufacturer are following the PCI-e specification, all card-MB-CPU combinations should work fine. The 760 is still not working, for unknown reasons.

Have you tried connecting to the motherboards video out to see if you get video there? You could also try to move the card to a different PCI slot and see if that works.

I suggest you buy a better graphics card for an x99 system.

That's not his question, and it's possible they need the GPU only as a display adapter. May not be a gaming machine.

X99 doesn't have iGPU.

X99 doesn't have iGPU.

Even if it is a production machine, Any practical use that a 6800k would have would require an acceptable graphics card, If they just need it for display output, they shouldn't have built an X99 System, The whole system doesn't make sense, and don't get me started on the 1000w PSU.

try putting the GPU in another pciex16 or even an x8.

Why? What if the stuff they're doing calls for a good CPU?

Anything that requires a good cpu would be benefited by a good gpu, A better system would be a 7700k with a good gpu, you could us both acceleration  and  it would be cheaper.

There is no video out in the MB. I tried 1080 from another friend, and it works.

Not always. A lot of tasks can be CPU heavy and only use the GPU to display a GUI (for example 7Zip file compression) in these cases Intel's integrated graphics are enough most of the time.

If you're trying to enter a competition for the World's Wrongest Post™, you're off to a strong start. Photoshop can require a speedy af CPU, but for all it cares you can use a Radeon X300. And another shocker would be software that has absolute shitty GPU utilization where adding in a GPU doesn't speed things up a whole hell of a lot *glares at Blender*

 

OP, all I can suggest is swapping slots, and if that doesn't do anything, a spare GPU would help a lot to see if it'll at least boot with one of those. Another issue that comes to mind is RAM that isn't seated properly (has happened to me with older PCs).

Who uses a dedicated system for file compression?

Make sure you have the right drivers installed and test out other outputs on the card. all I can think of right now lol

It was just an example of 1 possible application. There are alot out there that don't even need a dedicated GPU. For example Web browsing doesn't need a GTX 1080 It can be done with integrated graphics (unless you plan to stream 4K video).

Drivers should not matter. Drivers come into picture once OS takes over. I am not even able to see BIOS screen.
