Having an issue with brand new 5700.


Basically the system wont post, it appears to start but the display stays in power saving mode. Occasionally the system will start and boot to bios. when it does however the bios oddly shows to the CPU temp to be -55c. When i try my older GTX970 in the system, it boots and works fine, the CPU temp in bios shows a correct reading of around 25-30c.


I have tried manually locking pcie gen mode to gen 3, the motherboard bios has been updated to revision F4i

i have tried the other pcie slot. My next attempt now is going to be to fire up my old socket 2011 board and try the card there.


I am currently thinking its an issue between the motherboard and graphics card being incompatible.


Does anyone else with the same setup been able to get it to work?


Thanks for looking.
