When I turn the computer on either the fans on the cpu becomes very loud and I have to hard boot and sometimes that doesn't work so I have to unplug the power cord. When this happens the fan seems to spin up and down every 1-2 seconds. The bios has a toggle for either pci/pci-e / onbaord obviously I am on pci-e.
The fan thing I think is the key to the answer. Only with the 5570 plugged in does the cpu fan go full power for as long as the computer is on with no image.
