Will the GTX 660 or GTX 760 work with my Motherboard?

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

I have a IPISB-CU (Carmel2) motherboard but I have read numerous articles stating that the GTX 660/760 is not compatible with the Carmel Mobo by pegatron and upon booting the pc the screen would remain at the HP Splash Menu. The reason I am asking this is because I am looking into buying a new GPU, but I need to know if it will work with this mobo before purchasing. Thanks

P.S. I am aware that I will need to purchase a more powerful PSU

it modulates the stuffer expander. i hope you have clink filters installed. you dont want clink getting in the stuffer expander, thats what causes overheating in a lot of hyphootinators.

i learned that the hard way, cost me about £250 to get a replacement since you cant RMA a hyphootinator if it overheats from clink Sad

You guys are assholes. This is why we never retain new members.


Hey dude. What you need to look at is the available slots on your motherboard. You have a PCI-Express slot. Therefore you'll be fine.

Haha finally a normal response! Thanks but I'm not worried about not being able to physically install the GPU, but I am worried that my motherboard is not compatible with a upgraded GPU and PSU. I currently have a nVidia GT 520 installed, which came with the computer upon purchase.

not too hard. make sure it will fit your case and the chipsets match. it took me about an hour of trial and error my first time. psu wires should all be labeled and the motherboard sockets should be labeled as well. i ran into a front usb issue, but nothing too crazy.

I hate prebuilts....you're probably going to have to just get a cheap b75 or h61 motherboard, about 50-75ish bucks. Then Windows 7 or whatever you have will start crying about verification, also get a new power supply, the one in prebuilts is assured to be crap

i got a nice modular 700w for 50ish.
make sure you check dimensions first to make sure it will fit..
