Well shit.... I guess the next thing to do is put the vid card back in the top slot to be sure.
I cringe every time I take my G4 off of my X2. I know it's on with a good mount cause I've got a suction seal, and you can see that I have good coverage with the thermal paste cause it's semi-transparent and there are little peaks everywhere where the thermal paste has pulled apart. But I have to apply so much force to get the waterblock off. It scares me every time.
Phew! Back to PCI-E slot 2, and the system has video again. Something horribly wrong with the chipset fan tho. Makes grinding noises at higher RPM. At least I know now that it's not a dead MB.
The stock chipset fans have allways been a pathetic joke for me. Damn good to hear the board is ok though!
Looks like my chipset is ok afterall. But I still don't know how to get video working in slot 4.
C'mon now... cheer up. Yer back in the fold and that's what matters most.
Shyt happens brotha froggy. No need to stress... just roll with it.
not a folding issue
