Hello, my name is Chris.

I just upgraded my computer, installed all the components, fresh Win7 x64 install, all new stable drivers, etc.

I purchased a ASUS GTX 660 ti 2gb (TI-DC2O-2GD5) and tried to boot... nothing. It displays "Starting Windows" but when it gets time to display the UI, it blanks and restarts. I can go into safe mode, but i can't load into windows proper. I have everything installed correctly (both 6 pin plugs, and mounts).

I believe it's the card, because when i remove the card and connect to the onboard video, the system works fine.

The only reason i could think is this board not compatible with this card? (gen2/3 pci power?) I don't see why it wouldn't though...

I am an expert user, and can't find any reason why it would be doing this... Any help?

Specs:
mobo - ASUS Z87-k
proc - i5 4570 (haswell)
card - ASUS GTX 660 ti (2gb) Direct CU II OC
ram - 16gb (2x8) Patriot Signature Line DDR 3 1600
psu - ThermalTake SMART Series 750w (80 plus bronze) (62A on +12)
HDD - 1tb seagate

That's it.

Any help would be much appreciated!

If it's still within 30 days of purchase, I would just RMA it.

Sounds like a driver issue! You can boot into safe mode correct? Boot into safe mode, uninstall all graphics drivers from the add/remove programs folder. Navigate to your C:\ (or where ever windows is installed) and delete the NVIDIA folder. If you had ATI or Intel hardware before this card, then make sure that all those drivers are gone as well. Restart the computer, load your BIOS and make sure that it is set to use the Add In Card and not the onboard graphics, boot window in normal mode (it will take a little bit), windows will install the generic device drivers for your card. Once that is done, download and install the latest nvidia drivers.
