The himself and here after upgrade in z68.(Z68XUD4.U1A)
I updated the bios to Z68XUD4.U1A and upon reboot got no video.
Long story short, when I flip the video bios switch on my 6950s back to the factory bios, I get video. When I have it flipped to the power up flashed video, I get no video. Interestingly windows boots and everything either way, just with no video coming from my cards when flipped to the 6970 bios.
