Default Re: gigabyte GTX 760OC. no display.

No, these modern GPUs work off of the 12V rail only, which they then convert down for the GPU core, GPU secondary core / PCI-E comm bus, RAM Vdd, and RAM Vtt. The only place you will see 5V is on cards that still have analog output / RAMDACs - and that would be through a linear regulator typically fed from the 12V rail again (and from the PCI-E bus connector). On that note, nVidia removed analog output (no VGA capability on the cards anymore) starting with the GTX 10x0 series. For ATI/AMD, it started with the RX line. So if you need analog output, the last and best cards are the GTX 980 Ti and R9 290/390[X].
