    I just had something like this and it was my gfx card. To confirm test the card in another system and another card in your system.

    First impression - 280x/cpu fan called it a day.

    Steps to diagnose in the order -
    1) Check if your cpu fan is working.
    2) remove your GC and connect the monitor directly to your CPU and test it.
    3) check the temp of the cpu using hwmonitor and observe for any high temps

    report back your findings

    My money is on the GPU 280x, highly recommend you test with another GPU, not sure if the X99 comes with on board graphics.

    I had pretty much the exact same problem 2 weeks ago on my 6 year old sapphire 5670. 99% it's your card, and the only way to be sure is to check the way i said earlier. find a pc and/or a card for testing.

    You simply unplug and remove the GPU from its slot and connect your monitor directly to the MoBo output. Tell me if you are able to boot in and test it. Check the temps as well as suggested early.

    Why does he need an onboard gfx to connect and boot up his system?

    I donno RMA and finalising that its the GPU without testing by removing the GPU is a good idea. Rest is your call OP.

    first your rma the card if under warranty and get used card like nvidia 210 or any-else below 1k

    the rma take 1-4 week depend on service center and stock status

    Iam not suggesting him to RMA without due verification.

    I suggest OP to open justdail and see computer repair persons near him. Most would charge 100~200 bucks to come home to check the pc. Ask him to bring a pc with him or take your pc to him to confirm whether its gfx card fault or not.

    No dont buy yet. You better send it for RMA once confirming that the issue is with the GPU indeed. Sapphire has the reputation of replacing the RMAed GPU with a newer variant if the one that was given for RMA is obsolete. So you have a high chance of getting a newer variant if its indeed the issue with the GPU.
