I am in the process of building a custom PC. Space/airflow is limited. Heat is a non-issue.
I still would like to disable the nvidia chip from the mobo entirely, to stop it heating up / save energy and potentially remove the mammoth heatsink.
My question is, do motherboards depend on the nvidia chip in 100% of scenarios?
Will the mobo stilll boot should it be desoldered and a dedicated GFX present?
