I tested the new power supply in this computer I am on now with just the essentials and I got right to the boot screen. This video card works fine in this computer. If there is no standby light on the motherboard showing it is even receiving that power, wouldn't that mean its dead? The only thing strange is the cpu fan worked. Could it be receiving direct power from the 8pin connecter from the PSU, by passing the motherboard? I RMA'd the board I definitely looked for that light at one point during my testing and saw nothing. I could of had the power switch off when I looked. But it never came on when I had it running and I had no signal etc. I would of seen a bright green light lol.
I am just looking for some reassurance and or some guidance as to what I should try next if the board ends up being good. That's if they test them at new egg, I would think. Would the best thing be to buy a system speaker so I an properly test parts one by one? I am just realllly hoping I don't have to RMA another part, sooo long.
