No everyone i know has laptops and The gpu came with a 8pin power cable that has 2 6pin connector on one end in which i connect to the psu

The psu is 600w and these tech shop wants alot of money just to to check and fix a computer. I was trying to avoid them :))

Doesn't your PSU have a 6+2 pin PCI-E power supply that is specifically for add on GPUs.

 

Know what you mean about tech repair costs but what else can you do, you have an 8GB GPU there that cost an absolute fortune and can`t do anything with it  :(

It looks like that card is compatible with your system.

There must be different versions of PSU with the same name as I found a couple via Google that say 1 x 6 pin and 1 x 6+2 pin PCI-E, example here

If the store from where you purchased the card is local you should head there without delay and have them test the card, they need to prove to you that the card works and not the other way around in that you need to prove that the card does not work for whatever reason, always keep in mind that new goods are covered by warranty and that you should be careful not to void it.

As advised please return to the merchant from where you purchased the GTX 1080 card and have them test it for you, the card may have been bad from the outset and as advised you risk voiding any warranty if not done so already.

Apologies for the delay getting back to you kings121.

 

i assumed it could only be one thing and that is the mini-itx board couldnt power the standard size 1080 gpu with 2 fans 

 

 

The MB was not responsible for supplying power to the GTX 1080 the PSU was, you changed the PSU and had the same problem so that rules the PSU out as the cause and leaves the MB, you changed the MB and the card works fine in that which by the process of elimination means the original MB was the culprit and most likely as was previously mentioned the MB had a problem with the PCI-E slot.

 

By the by now, we are pleased to hear that you now have a fully functional computer and thank you for letting us know how things worked out  :thumbsup:
