Annoying issues with PC.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Sooo I've been having issues with my 780i, enough that I just decided to pull the trigger on SB, but I still want to solve the issues so I can sell what I can.

E-mailed EVGA for support, still in the process of doing so, but here are the issues I'm experiencing:

- Random memory-related/GPU related BSODs.
- GPUs losing their hooks in games, making my FPS drop to 5-10 fps, GPUs go back to idle until reboot(re-opening the game doesn't change anything).
- Raid-1 randomly deciding to show up as two degraded raid-1 arrays though they are perfectly fine
- Sometimes, it feels sluggish in games and it has no reason to be(as if it was struggling)

Now for tests I have done:

**I HAVE BEEN AT STOCK THE ENTIRE TIME SINCE ISSUES STARTED**

- CMOS reset
- Cleaned PC, temps are fine, so is airflow
- Formatted multiple times
- Tried multiple different drivers in each different formats
- Tried on multiple games
- Memtest passed for 24 hours, no issues.
- 200 passes of IBT at Maximum memory, just fine.
- Prime95 SmallFFT/Blend stable as well.

EVGA asked me to take the mobo out of the case, that's what I did, putting the whole mobo, HD, PSU, barebones on a cardboard box. Currently testing with this to make sure it's not a short.

I was folding earlier(been since last night), using the GPU3 client, as well as a SMP client, to load my system to 100% all accross the board; and I got the EUE limit exceeded. Pausing for 24 hours. [UNSTABLE_MACHINE] error at the end of both my GPU WUs.

Tests I have yet to make:

- Long, long Furmark(12 hours+) to verify if it can make it through alright.
- Swap PSUs to my old one.
- Yet another clean format

I know EVGA will give me support, but I'm still curious to see if any of you got any ideas, I'm pretty much at the end of my rope, ideas-wise.

It's probably in the wrong section. Could a mod move this to where that would fit? I was on the fence and I saw general forum. Didn't read description enough. My bad.
