hello im wondering if this card will fit in a 2012 mac pro in the bottom slot?
i can confirm this too if it's the evga ftw one
i installed a 680 in the slot were the 5770 was and now my fans go crazy but when moved to the next x16 slot the fans act good is this normal?
^^^ No, but on some Mac's it seems to happen.
Several people have reported this with aftermarket video cards. A few have reported this even with official Apple 5770 and 5870 video cards.
So far, the only solutions seem to be:
1) After bootup, run any program that works the card.
2) Cold boot into Windows, then reboot into OS X.
3) Use slot 2 as you've done.
I wonder if we could figure out which machines/boot roms are affected?
I DID notice that hardware monitor app (Pro version, or whatever, the one you pay for) has a "GPU %" entry near bottom of screen that appears on 4,1/5,1 but does not on a 3,1. So AGPM would have different info to decide on fan speeds.
