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?
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)

Any help would be much appreciated!
