Hi all.
 
I am having an issue with my GTX 970 SC. 
When the is PC turned on the fans start spinning on the card for a second and then stop, this process repeats every few seconds - almost like it keeps boot cycling. Of course, this means that the card is not outputting a display. 
 
I am able to get a display from my onboard graphics and can see that the GPU is not showing up in device manager. 
 
I have tried the card in a friends rig and the issue persists, although he does not have on-board graphics so I can't see if it shows up in device manager (but I can assume it wouldn't). I have also tried his GPU (Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT) in my rig and it works fine, so I don't think the issue lies with any of my other hardware.
 
I would appreciate any troubleshooting help you guys can provide - or if it is a lost cause, I would appreciate knowing that before stressing myself out trying to revive it! Thanks in advance.
 
My rest of my setup is as follows:
CPU: i7 4790k
Motherboard: Asus z97-pro gamer
RAM: Hyper X Fury 16GB (2x8GB) 1866mhz
PSU: Corsair RM850x
Boot Drive: Crucial M500 240GB

    The gpu kicked the bucket.. No signal through the card and when using on board it doesn't show up in device manager.

    Oh well, thanks for the heads-up.
    I may put it under the heat gun in that case, see if I can eek a bit of life out of it until replacement cards come back in stock.
