So I finally bought the gigabyte gtx770 oc version and it's an insane card like I expected, but I noticed a problem since I installed it, my games which are installed on black caviar wd seem to freeze randomly on loading screens and the hdd seems to stop working(i get a pulse in the hdd led insted of continues reading) My system is installed on ssd and it wont freeze like the game, I can actually go to TM and close the game with no problem.
What can be the problem? Can it be that one of the components are not getting sufficiant power? Or maybe a problem with the driver?
Any help will be much appriciated.

Did you completely uninstall previous drivers for your old card first?

Since installing your GPU has the system reset your shut down times for HDDs when not in operation? Check your power settings and then the advanced settings for it and set your hard disk to close after 9999 minutes.

As said before it should be sufficient power, 230W total power for the GPU on full load, another 140W for the Motherboard and CPU. Thats 370 so far, leaves you with 180W to go around for hard drives etc.

How is your GPU connected. Are you sharing an extension for the 8 pin or 6 pin with a strand of molex's which share with the SSD? If so then make sure it doesn't keep any molex cables you used with extensions by themselves and not shared, if you have a PSU with a 6 and 8 pin separate, then don't worry.

Also it is possible your SSD is not compatible along side the 770. Hard to predict that would happen, and very unlikely but can still be possible.

Check your event viewer and look at any errors when the SSD powered down perhaps it will go into details there.

I uninstalled the drivers but I dont if completely, and yes the gpu connected to the 8pin with adaptor but it doesnt share connections with any ssd or hdd, btw I dont think the ssd is the problem like I said the games are on the hdd WD caviar black and when the game freezes I can still go back to windows and close it drom the task manager(the windows is on the ssd).
Btw all of the disks are set to never turn off..

edit: in the event viewer I get this error: the program _____ version_____stopped interacting with windows and was closed.

could be when you installed the card that maybe some cables to the hdd and sdd arent properly connected? also when using the hdd and sdd and knowing they are sata 2 or sata 3 try to connect them to the relevant sata 2/3 ports on the motherboard, so they have the right sata 2/3 slot for each, also when using a dvd writer/player, also connect this one to a separate slot, that way you know for sure its all correct setup and no wire'ing
problem.

the way i did mine is the sata 3 devices in the sata 3 ports and the dvd in its seperate sata 2 slot

i also checked some forums about freezing problems with the same card as you have and most are telling it can be a driver problem some used the latest driver some went back to the earlier. since its a rather new card

I suspected it would be the case like i wrote in my earlier posts in this thread, I actually hope it's a driver issue and not a power issue..
