I have a GTX285 that I use only for Physix in Games like Crysis in the Max, when not use it I not even plug it to the PSU i leave it only inserted in the PCI Express slot because I have wires in front of it and its a pain to put and take it all the time. Is there a problem with this in therms of my GTX285 health?
Thanks - advance[/QUOTE]
Your asking for trouble that power connector is there for a good reason as the GPU will need the power when it needs it to cool the GPU itself and it doesn’t take anymore power then at idle and only uses the extra power when the Graphics require more power to run GPU intensive games. Also you don’t identify which GTX285 your referring to would help as well. Also are you limited to power connectors or something? You gave very confusing hardware configuration to be of help to know how you have it connected and setup?
