Yeah, reinstalling the drivers w/driversweper seemed to do the trick. I ran furmark again and no blue screen when I quit it. Now to run some games and see what the story is.

Just a side note: your performance is going to be a fair bit slower than benchmarks because most GPU benchmarks use a high end Intel chip like a 2600k or even a 3960x to remove any CPU bottlenecking. Slower CPUs like your 1090T will see anywhere from 0-50% performance hit compared to benchmarks.

I actually am pretty happy with my 1090t to be perfectly honest with you. It handles every game great at 1080p smile.gif

Right so I did a bit of gameplay and it still happened :-\ Bear in mind this is after 30 minutes of just exploring the wilderness - I thought it was the PCI top slot since nothing out of the ordinary was happening but then, I was talking to an NPC standing stationary and the sky flashed black (so its not a case of the game loading in assets) I was on the phone to asus component support and told him about everything that was happening, and he told me that if the problem persists when I try it on the second PCI slot, something is wrong with the card.

Is there an Asus rep on overclock.net?

Looks like I am going to RMA the card anyway. I have tried everything suggested here and the card is still in the same situation. I would just like to thank you all for the help anyway. I'm deciding to ditch AMD once and for all and go to the green side - Hopefully I will find better luck there!

Now that being said, the cards (if they worked properly) were great. I put just over 266 hours into Skyrim (redface.gif) and highly enjoyed it on my 6950 even though the AA was defiantly messed up! One of my fondest memories was the first Christmas on my gaming PC. I still remember the excitement as the postman walked up the door (and nearly slipped holding the boxes biggrin.gif) I was such a newb back then and it must have took me the whole day to assemble the dam computer - even something as simple as inserting the CPU power cable was a big challenge to me at the time!

literally my heart sank as the first time I hit the power switch - the computer did not boot - not a sign of life from it at all. I had a look at the computer and surely enough - the power connector polarity was wrong! redface.gif That Christmas was kick ass - me and my friend literally spent our whole Christmas break playing Minecraft until 6 in the morning. I bought mass effect two and I was blown away at how smooth everything was and how great it looked. I always played xbox 360 on a SD TV and never experienced playing games in 1080p before.

Here is to more years playing games on PC! biggrin.gif

1830's house. yes wiring may have been upgraded LOL !

You even say the same display cable was used throughout, and it's still not a problem ?

I simply cannot believe that you could be that "unlucky", I have had three GTX 460's, two HD 5870's a GTX 480 and several older cards and had only two fan failures ( 1x AMD 1 X Nvidia )

Give it to someone who has some background with PC's - what does this even mean ?

" I had a look at the computer and surely enough - the power connector polarity was wrong ! "

Sounds harsh, but get help when you fail, or continue to fail.

dunx

P.S. Every card I've owned has run OC'd 24/7 running BOINC and I've never lost one.

I think the real problem is from buying bottom market 3rd party cards.
If you're really going to jump ship....make sure you get a good Nvidia partner like EVGA's cards.

Eehhhh...

Not sure how I missed this, but, wow.

One of the causes for your issue is improper power delivery, as we have repeated here many times...

When was your house COMPLETELY updated and COMPLETELY re-wired? Are there multiple circuits for the different areas in the house, or when the electrical was "updated" did the person who had it done have a "friend" do it for a "good price"? Was it done properly and to modern standards?

Further, there are very few items in a home more demanding than a computer. A plasma TV isn't one of them, not by a long shot....

A few contenders would be...

Oven
Dryer
Microwave

Having read everything you have said, I am more and more believing it is poor power distribution that is at fault.
