If you have issues even without the GPU installed, it could be that something else is wrong with your system maybe? Are you sure everything is securely connected?
Try the GTX 680 in an entirely another PC ( like a friend's rig or something ) and see if you still have the issue.

when you say as a "bench" is it on a motherboard box or a computer bench? if the latter can you take the mobo off the bench place it on the mobo box and see if you still have the problem.

Try checking your required amp to run your GPU. It should be on the card box. Then check your PSU amps on the +12 volt rail. My GTX 680 SC min req is 38 amps. I ran it with 45 amps and I started having random crashes. I then bought me a AX850 with 70 amp on the +12 volt rail and the crashing stopped.

I'm sure everything is connected properly, I'll try testing in a friends rig and I'll try taking the GPU out.

I mean it's just screwed into my motherboard tray from my case, and that is sitting on my desk.

I'm fairly certain the PSU isn't the problem, as it's brand new and I've tested it with another one. Wouldn't seem logical that both of them are broken...

Also, as soon as I installed my nVidia drivers onto ubuntu, guess what! I now can't even boot into ubuntu without crashing. Fantastic!

Can you make sure the mobo screws are not loose or maybe take it off the tray and put it on a mobo box?

OK, will do. I had it on the box before but I was experiencing other issues.

Back on the box, same issues.

Hmm and you have the I/O bracket from the GPU overhanging the mobo box right>?
post #20 of 27
do you have all the proper drivers for your g.card and mobo? are the win 8 compadible? do you have an overclocking program like precision x or afterburner?
