Default Re: GT430 not functioning correctly

Thanks for the reply. The card is not PCI express. Ordering a PCI express card was the first mistake I made in this learning experience. This card is PCI and should work. If PCI card in a PCI-X slot is the problem I was hoping someone could tell me. Prior to getting this machine I had never heard of PCI-X.

You are the second person who has mentioned the PSU. I have 460 watt x2. The card needs a 300 watt. This shouldn't be my problem should it?

The chaps at HP suggested that it may be due to it being a passively cooled card in a 1U form factor box where it may not be getting sufficient air flow. Yes? No? What if I mount a fan directly over the heatsink?
