Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 275, 285 or 295" thread

Got the BFG GTX 285 OC last week, also upgraded power supply to handle it. Had some problems initially when trying to use the nvidia monitoring utility. Since I uninstalled nv monitor, things have been good.

And yes, the BFG GTX 285 OC has its clocks set over the specs on the box. I'm still debating whether I should flash the bios to lower the specs to what it is supposed to be.

A question: Should I run two lines from the modular psu to the card, or is it okay to use one line with both connectors?
