I've been struggling with 3Dmk11 hanging at 5.0 with 1.3V into sli titans - actually will 101! Does not hang at 4.9 and 1.3V (second place sli score) and will do p95 5min/FFT with 12288 ram committed for as long as I'm willing to watch temps in high 70's low 80's (82C max). Okay - so this may be the answer... hooked up a killawatt meter to the PSU with the CPU @5.0:

Idle = ~ 160-170 watts to the rig
Browser = ~300W
Super Pi = 340W
p95 (8G ram) = 600W (597+/-)
3Dmk11 @ 875/3005 1.16V = 800-900W (default setting using svl7v3)
3DMk11 @1215/3602 1.3V = 1190-1220W !!!
Valley @ 1215/3602 1.3V = 950-1050W (1080P ExHD)
Firestrike @ 1215/3602 @ 1.3V = 1050-1130W (default)

So.... my 1200W PCP&Cooling PSU is barely enough!!
I have a ST1500, have to see if it will handle a max watt draw run.

Thanks for posting this Jpmboy. I never realized that my setup ( very similar to yours) could draw 1200W+ from the wall. Im using a Corsair HX1050 watt PSU.

I wonder if maxing out a psu can affect synthetic benchmark scores?

I was in a similar situation a few weeks back (august 3rd?)

A seller was listing a brand new GTX Titan (with the same stock pics) for 850 + 15 shipping. He had a feedback rating of 350, with only 2 negative feedback. I checked those out and decided it wasn't a big deal since he replied that he accepted returns. Anyways, the price was too good and I pulled the trigger.

About 3 days after I bought the item, the seller still hadn't added the tracking number. Since it was over a weekend, I gave him until after Monday before I was going to message him about it. On early Tuesday, he finally posted the tracking number, and it did indeed show the package en route to my zip code. I was actually really relieved and I thought that I was going to get the item just fine. (By the way, he used USPS)

Finally came the day that the item was to be delivered. The delivery did not require a signature, but I had countless packages delivered before and never had a single problem. I wasn't worried that it would get stolen or anything, since my ups/mailman usually leaves the package inside the porch gate, which I keep unlocked on days that I have packages. At work, I checked around noon and saw that the package had been dropped of by 10:00 am. Couldn't wait to get back!

Got home by 5:30, and as I walked up to the front door I was feeling a sense of panic. Saw a single package from amazon but that was it. No packages from the ebay seller was found at all. Had somebody stolen it? I looked all around the perimeter and didn't find anything. I was really concerned by this point, and wrote a message to the seller describing what happened, and asking if he could provide a receipt showing that he shipped to the correct address.

I did some more probing and found out that this seller actually sold MORE than one titan. He actually sold like 8 of these. Yes. Another suspicious note was that, after an entire week and a half, he received NO feedback from ANY buyer. Does this possibly mean nobody actually received their item? Eventually, he received 9 negative feedback, by which point he had made his feedback history private. I haven't seen him buy/sell anything since.

Apparently ebay/paypal places the burden of getting the package safely to the buyer on the seller's hands. Meaning if the package were lost, the seller would have to take the responsibility of filing a claim with the carrier. I patiently awaited his message (mind you, something this expensive should warrant a very quick response from any seller). A day after, no response. I filed a dispute with paypal, and after 2 more days, the seller provided no communication either. Therefore, I escalated it to a chargeback on paypal's level. This took a while; after 3 or 4 days paypal sent me an email telling me that I had to provide documentation within 3 days or that they will close the dispute in the seller's favor. What?! I had no documentation except that I know I did not receive the item. So I just called paypal and spoke with a representative. Surprisingly, the lady on the line looked at the case and said, "so I see that there was not signature confirmation, so I can close the case right here and now and refund your purchase." I was just really relieved to get my money back, but I guess it was also a lesson learned that, in the future, don't buy items that expensive without the seller not providing actual pictures. Seriously.

By the way, I looked through the sold listings for gtx titan on ebay, and there were 3 other sellers who sold them for 850, new, and with the exact same stock photo and description, and each of these sellers had around 70 feedback. Since then, all of these sellers have made their feedback private after getting a slew of negative feedback from the buyers they scammed. Before, they had 100% positive feedback. This just shows that feedback is not trustworthy when the seller doesn't post detailed information about the item he is selling.

If you guys would like, I could post their names so people don't fall into the same trap again. Though I highly doubt these sellers (or maybe they're all the same one?) would use the same accounts.

Stay safe!

EDIT: basically what I suspect he did was, ship a fake box to somewhere in my zip code (or any buyer's zip code) and then post that tracking number so they believe that the item was shipped. In reality, the tracking number does not show the actual address, and USPS does not take photos of every package label (I called USPS and they said that they could not pull up a photo).

Yep, this book's theme has always resonated with me since middle school wink.gif

Its interesting how some books can have such a profound impact. I guess part of it has to do with if the message resonates with one's own personality and predisposition.
