What makes it b grade?

Original Poster

B Grade items may have been used, have damaged packaging, missing accessories or a combination of these.

Some items may have scuff marks or slight scratches but should otherwise be an operable product.

why is it b grade?

You could buy a decent gaming PC for this price. Who cares how good the graphics card is? Senseless people and their money...

It could be damaged in transit, returned with missing accessories, anything really. It could come in perfect condition mind you. The warranty puts me off with these purchases.

Could have been returned due to coil whine.

Why buy things in life, just steal them, duh!

Below is the original description for this product, any reference to warranty is to be ignored. Warranty for this item is 90 days as with all B Grade items.
Not really a Big deal with warranty for 90 days ...

Agreed, I've just sold my GTX 1070 and bought an S3 Virge so I can play all my games on low at 1 fps

As far as I know it's 90 dats warranty from Ocuk and remained warranty from manufacturer

That's just what they say, but by law (Sales and goods act of 1979) they have to offer you longer.

Do all manufacturers transfer the warranty over?

Just purchase a graphics card capable of running the original Dawn Of War and you're sorted because that's all you're ever gonna play.

Why didn't ocuk return this themselves back to the manufacturer? They must have good working relationships with them as a buyer.

tsk tsk

To get RMA you have to send this back to OCUk first and they will send this to Gigabyte service which means you don't have warranty after 90 days .
There is no way to send this back straight to gigabyte it's strange but that's how they work with any RMA .

"mehmeh", "ahahaha" and "hahaha"? That pretty much sums you up.



I've always leaned towards AMD.

So much bile and hostility from you both. Did Santa not bring you what you wanted for Christmas?

as mentioned before I don't know how these mainstream suppliers get away with it...SOGA states that good must be fit for purpose regardless of 2nd hand etc. you could quite easily make the case that 500 quid graphics card should last longer than 90 days.....taking them to court to honour it is a different matter though......shame on you OCUK!

​really???¿!:!! I think you are a little out of date there mate...... you may wanna do a little research on updated consumer law

be honest, asking why someone would want a quality item is a bit daft?no?

why would you want a nice car etc?

Hi guys, I need help desperately. Would this card work in a H-CUPERTINO2-H61-uA TX (Cupertino2) motherboard? I hace the card and it boots up and gives display but doesn't go beyond the initial bios page and the motherboard mildly beeps every minute or so. I have updated the bios. The old card is working just fine.

TBH you'd be better off asking on a dedicated PC hardware site, like the overclockers UK forums. The motherboard has a PCI-E 16x slot though, so it should work. Is the PSU strong enough and do you have power connected to the card?

Hey, yeah the power is connected and the PSU is 850W. In fact the previous card in the system was an r9 390X, which takes 2 8-pin connector cables hence a lot more power. The previous card also allows the pc to boot into windows without any hassle however the GTX 1080 stops at bios and it starts to beep. I have now trawled the internet for days and the nearest issue found has been on 1060 and 960 cards which is exactly the same but fixed by a bios update. I've updated the bios to no avail.

I'm assuming you've already found this video-

If none of that works, you're probably out of luck. There's always been issues with buying PCs from the likes of HP and then upgrading them, like they don't fully follow technical standards when making the mobos or something like that. You're options would seem to be return/sell the 1080, or maybe if all the other parts are standard (i.e. not HP) you could just buy a new non-HP mobo, but then you'd probably need a new OS license and you'd have to reinstall windows and I don't know if it's worth the effort.

Btw you should be able to look up the mobo beeps in the manual, although it probably won't tell you anything more than 'vga init failure'. Only other thing I can think of is blow in the PCI-E slot to check there's no dust in there, and check the card is seated all the way in.
