Hey guys, its been a long time since I've posted here but I know this is the best place to come for help.

I have been getting by on a 6570 and recently pulled the trigger on a Gainward 760 Phantom, ANNOYINGLY after spending a while routing cables and making my new 760 at home I went to boot and the damn PC just hangs at post with the "American Megatrends" logo but nothing else.

First thing I did is pull out the GPU and test it in another PC which booted without a hitch with the 760 working fine.

So I have boxed the 760 and the 6570 is rocking my i7 again ಠ_ಠ
My motherboard is a Z77MX-D3H TH
The motherboard that the 760 was working on is a P35-DS3R

So I have a lovely 760 sitting doing nothing in my cupboard at the moment. Any Ideas?

Are you talking about a NVidia GTX760?
What power supply are you using (make & model, Wattage & 12Volt Amperage)?
Did you delete the graphics driver before the swap out?
Are you using two 6pin PCIe connectors?
Did you try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking (F8)? If it boots into Safe Mode, you can remove the graphics driver and download the correct one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

PSU is a Corsair TX650M with a single 54Amp 12V rail
Both PCI power cable's in firmly.

Didn't delete drivers but the system is hanging before it even posts. Post logo comes up, but stops, no writing or anything it just sits at the very beginning of post and cant get into BIOS or anything.

✔ Best Answer
What BIOS version on your board? The two latest are F5 & F6b (Beta). If you're still running the original, you might wanna consider updating. If you don't wana risk it, try resetting the BIOS & loading defaults. You can manually configure the settings again later.
