This Question would more belong to the Hardware forums, but since I can't post it there, I'll do this here.
My Computer has two PCI-Express Slots, one near to the bottom of the case, and one a bit above.
Yesterday my AMD Radeon HD 6870 arrived. I was happy to have it working, but I got a big problem, after about 5 Minutes on Fan Setting AUTO the temperature rised up to more than 85 °C, which was to dangerous for me.
This is due to my Case: the upper PCI-E-Card has better Air Venting, and on top the lower one is heating the bottom of my case and my floor.
Well so I quickly changed the new GPU to Slot #1 and my old one to GPU Slot #2.
This works atm, but I wanted it like this: My Old GPU (Which only made 80 MHashes/s) should be used to browse the Internet and perhaps even play games
. My new GPU should generate bitcoins simultaneous.
The Problem is, Windows 7 (and the BIOS) uses the Card in Slot #1 as a Display, and I didn't find some settings in BIOS to Change this. Does anyone know how to do this?
I need it that way, so I can use the Computer without experience lags or a burning GPU!
I would be really happy about any kind of idea!
