  1. Good news! I got both machines running, graphics drivers installed, and all drives detected! I used a non modular power supply for my main rig and used a spare power supply that I knew had the right power cables belonging to it on my girlfriends rig. They need a big warning label not to use cables from other PSUs lol. Very stressful and nearly expensive lesson to learn! Thank god for over current protection on the power supplies I was attempting to use.
  2. Would it be worth investing in another power supply with enough pcie cables for the 3070 then? Or is there something else I can try?
  3. Im using a Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition case. It has a built in RGB fan controller that so happens to use sata power to operate. I could plug the 3pin fans directly into the headers to avoid using the sata power, but theres still the issue of not being able to use a HDD Fairly cerain one of the 8-pin GPU power connectors came from a different PSU since the RTX needed a second 8pin power cable, otherwise, they are all original connectors and were working fine for the last 2 years of use with the GTX 1060
  4. Yes, you read the title correctly. I have just purchased an ASUS RTX 3070 KO OC to replace my MSI GTX 1060 Armor. After swapping the cards, my pc wouldn't boot. After some hours of trouble shooting, re-seating everything, I was finally able to get my system to POST and enter BIOS after unplugging all my SATA power connectors, which including 3 case fans, and 1 HDD. My specs: MOBO: ASUS ROG Strix X470-F Gaming bios version 4017 CPU: Ryzen 7 2700 3.2ghz GPU: old MSI GTX 1060 Armor 6gb new ASUS RTX 3070 KO OC RAM: TridntZ RGB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000mhz PSU: Thermaltake Smart Pro
