    Don't use the HDMI output?
    Look carefully through the mobo bios for a setting that might clear up this mess?
    Contact PowerColor & Gigabyte tech support?

    Pretty much my whole pc area is set up for HDMI, I don't even have a dvi to hdmi cable I think.
    I know the bios inside and out when it comes to video settings so I don't know what else to do there.
    The good news is that this particular board is going to be moved to another machine along with a pair of 6850's so that solves the problem by avoiding it.

    I'm not going to stress about it, but still it ticks me off that I can't figure this out. I think it's something to do with the board hardware/firmware not switching.

    I need to add this technique to my troubleshooting tool kit.

    Careful! This method not recommended nor sanctioned for novice slackers!

    Do I want to solve it? Sure. I don't know what else I can do at this time. The board will be replaced with my other UD5H that has the delidded cpu soon. Now if the top slot doesn't work on THAT board then I will be seriously pissed....but it's been working fine with a pair of 7950's so hopefully it will be OK with a single one.

    Now that u popped it off , did you have all capacitors near the connector ? Seems to affect the cheap ones with reference cooling.


    If you use the second slot , then the first one is in 8x. Is there BiOS fix for that card?

    ga-z77x-ud5h PCI-e is
    16x
    or
    8x + 8x
    or
    8x + 4x +4x (with Ivy only)

    Just for an update.....I contacted Gigabyte and they said to boot with no gpu cards installed using the onboard graphics.....and set the PCI Oprom to Legacy. Then save settings and stick the 7950 in.
    Alright, I thought it seemed like great advice since I forgot to even check it. But it didn't work......
    I sent them another message, will wait to see what they say.

    I tried removing the battery for an hour or so and left the psu unplugged all night and repeating the procedure but no go.
    Same thing, I can stick another card in the second slot and the 7950 in top slot works fine. Just freaking weird.
    If Gigabyte doesn't come up with a fix I may reinstall F14 bios and try again. Currently the latest beta bios is installed. I don't understand why the board won't revert to defaults and recognize the 7950. I ALWAYS boot the first time with a graphics card on a new motherboard so the system will recognize it right off.

    Speedwise you are not missing hardly anything, but the problem doesn't sound like other bios (mobo or gpu) related problems. With Bios problem you usually didn't get any picture in any slot and yours work with 2nd gen bus. And it was the F4 F8 that had problems with new nvidia600 series cards, F14 should work ok just like f15. Have you tested other 3x card in that mobo? Does it have the reference looking cooler? Does it have all capacitors @ bottom backside above connector?

    It's a reference card, just like my others. I have an EK block I haven't installed yet until I sort things out. I'm not putting my other cards in the slot because they have blocks installed and they are on my new Z87 I want to get fired up.
    Something on the mobo is fubar is all I can figure out, the card performs very well as long as the second slot is occupied. >8400 3DMark11 baseline with no tweaks I think is performing OK.....

    Did you read the link I posted? Theres picture for reference, easy to flipover the card and see backside if all capacitors (feeding the pciex3 lane) are installed. It's most likely you gfx card thats fubar.

    Can't you test the 7950 in another mobo then, like leave waterblocked hanging on their hoses for short while and see if you get post pic with z87?

    Gigabyte says the pcie slot is the problem and to RMA the board.
