    That particular card probably is bigger than yours. a 2.5 slot and probably longer too. I suspect it is bigger than my TI will be.

    The TI's are huge. This is the Gigabyte Aorus, look at the size.

    I know everyone is excited to get their new card for benches, but is anyone actually playing games with them :)

    I'm currently replaying Dragon Age: Inquisition with my aging AMD R9 Fury and forgot how gorgeous the game looks running in Mantle. It actually looks better in Mantle than DX11. Just a beautiful looking game.

    Funny story - during one of my game play sessions it suddenly gets very hot in my room. So hot, that I actually thought my wife turned on the heat. At the same time I hear the GPU fans ramp up. Nothing unusual here as the game's graphics really pushes the card.

    Anyway I get up to go see why it's suddenly so darn hot and happen to look down at my case and notice the front fan's LED is out. OK, maybe I accidentally hit the LED switch on the case. Noooooooo.... the front fan is out... and the case suddenly sounds like a jet engine. Now I know why it's so darn hot. There's not enough moving air to push that heat out the case and it's radiating heat!!!

    So now I have to emergency purchase a 230mm front for my HAF X case. Here's the weird part though, the fan is suddenly working again

    I'm still going to replace the fan though since this is an indicator it's ready to go. Still weird though.

    You might want to go to Device Manager and see if there is an update to (in my case it's) the Intel(R) 100 Series/C230 Series Chipset Family Thermal subsystem - A131
    After the Creators Update I went into DM and check for update on some of the low level drivers in System Devices, and found some, including for this one, and Intel(R) Xeon(R) E3 - 1200/1500 v5/6th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) Gaussian Mixture Model - 1911

    I think you'll see them playing games. Blackrose definitely and essenbe just bought Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 ready to launch that puppy with the early May ETA on his card. All whom I know are waiting for their cards, except Solarstarshines.

    PS: not a funny story to me, a scary story. Glad you were right there when it happened.

    LOL - I've been living in Device Manager because of an unknown USB issue as discussed in the Gigabyte forums at overclock.net here. And this issue proceeded the update. Anyway no, there are no other issues in DM saying I need drivers.

    That said, since I'm obsessive about driver updates I'm always looking for them. But no, no driver issue. Anyway this is a case fan issue, so I fail to see where drivers come in.

    BTW how did you determine you needed an updated driver through DM? I know about exclamation marks, but am I missing something else???

    Thanks.

    Well is was a case fan, not a CPU one. And it's easily recognizable since it lights up the front of my case. If that light is off, I'm going to investigate :)

    But yeah, don't need case fans going since I only run 2 anyway. Prefer a quiet system.

    I have had the problem, others have had, with PS/2 drivers not connected(I don't even own any such devices)

    when doing a System Health Report(perfmon /report) and showed hidden devices to check for a drive update.
    Then, well, one update check lead to another(Geek boredom I guess),
    but also I checked the thermal because the exhaust fan on the back of my case(behind my heat sink fan), started shutting down when my CPU Package was under 29C(the heat sink keeps running, just the exhaust fan shuts down), then it starts up when over 30C.
    It used to just slow waaaay down, but never shut down.
