Alright guys! Earlier I had posted a question asking about legacy BIOS compatible for the RX 470, specifically the ASUS Strix edition.


After ordering an RMA and getting a new card, I must sadly say that this card doesn't seem to be compatible with older Intel sockets. 


I tested this on both a DELL XPS 8300 as well as an MSI board with the LGA 775 socket, both of which resulted in the same issue, black screen with no post.

Upon inserting an older card I.E the R9 285, both PC's booted up no problem


I'm not bashing the 470, its an amazing card, I just want to warn anyone trying to upgrade their older systems because there is a possibility that it may not work.


If you see any fault in my conclusion please let me know!!!
