I agree with skupples, better to call EVGA first. If the cards are registered I think you are covered. If you manage to find the sticker that would be best.

Hope it works out.

I'll end doing that if I can't find it. I still have the original box and everything else in mint condition, and the box does a duplicate sticker on it, just without the "warranty void if removed" on it. So I do have that at the very minimum to match the online registration.

I would do it if it's not too much a hassle. The stock heatsink has those chokes exposed right under the fan, so they work off a fair amount of forced air convection. There is absolutely not airflow under the water block and they're probably cooking under there.

I think I am on caffeine deprivation...How the hell would you flash the BIOS back if the card is dead with a burned choke...Sorry about that creator doh.gif

I'm really not worried about the bios. By the time that board gets repaired and working, I should have a replacement card. Just the SN sticker, which I will have to go searching for later. I hope it's not going to be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. redface.gif

Hey brother creator,
It was a full cover ek right?
At what voltage were you?
Oc as the core?
Everything under liquid?
Temp?
Volts?
Thnx

I went to bed as usual with one Titan mining using CudaMiner (it got much better the past month), and the other running a fine mesh heat transfer calculation. The miner was running 98% TDP (294W) and the one running the calculation at 90% TDP (270W). Both were undervolted as well. Temperatures stabilized at around 55C for both which is a little bit warm for water-cooling, but my room was also pretty warm as my computer dumps a consistent 800W into the room (also have a 7790 mining in the bottom PCIe slot).

I've done this for about a month now without problems. Last night I woke up to a really bad smell in my room. The computer was still on, without a display. The smell is originated from somewhere around the bottom Titan (the one running the fine mesh calculation). That one is no longer detected in the display manager. Physically, the portions of it that are not covered by the water block look fine. I won't know what exactly happened until I disassemble the computer this weekend. Maybe it's something on the motherboard around the PCIe slot that went, but I'm not going to get my hopes on that.

The smell also wasn't some kind of "burned smell" but more like some kind of "sour chemical smell" is the best I can describe it as.

I've just been having bad luck with this build in general it seems. First a cracked water block. Then a broken water pump. Now possibly a broken Titan. I can't even use the computer now period because it just smells too bad when it's actually turned on.

Its always a good idea to read a few posts back or search the post author! thumb.gif
Fill your SIG with your RIG, there is a link in my SIG! Its important!

Evening all,

Read many pages of this thread but, wondered if you guy's could help out quickly. I not long since built my first gaming computer (after a break from pc's since the mid 90's) and was wondering what power supply to upgrade to. I currently have in my system:

sli asus titans (stock air)

i7 3770k@4.8 (h100i cooler)

12gb corsair ram @ 2400 with fan cooler (up from 2000 with a friends help)

x4 ocz ssd's


Got a 1000w ocz gold psu atm and im looking to water cool gpu's, cpu and ram in 2 custom loops. My cosmos 2 has just arrived (nearly herniated the deliver driver....) so i could fit a second lower power psu in addition. So my question really is how much more omph will i need if im doing the above plus oc'ing the gpu's.

At present if i go over 976mhz in sli my system dies.

Thanks for any enlightening replies

Cheers
G

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=349




Take a look here at a quote from one of my posts:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Bear in mind that my system is in my SIG and the only difference was the CPU@4.8Ghz@1,30v! Using triple monitor 3240 x 1920@120hz SLI TITANS W/ Skyn3t Rev2 bios
and memory at stock 6000mhz!

1306mhz / 1,37v / power draw 124% / load 99% 372W*
1333mhz / 1.37v / power draw 134% / load 99% 402W*
1359mhz / 1.37v / power draw 139% / load 99% 417W*
1385mhz / 1.37v / power draw 145% / load 99% 435W*
1400mhz / 1.39v / power draw 155% / load 99% 465W*
*power draw just for one card
As you can see voltage alone will not increase power draw until you increase clocks and dynamically load your card, power was being drawn from the wall ranging from 850W - 1250W!

The PT is the increase of TDP (thermal design power) which is determined by the chips maker (GK110 =250W) but this is not a fixed value, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system, in this case a chip, is required to dissipate. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, but the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the chip will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power.
"TDP is meant to be the wattage of the processor at load. I say "wattage" because it is unclear if this is meant to correspond most immediately to how much power is consumed in watts, or how much heat is produced in watts, but as near as I can tell the TDP is pretty much meant to indicate both" GL



(where C is capacitance, f is frequency and V is voltage)

Now, you dont have to make complicated calculus or anything like that because you have this chip here:



It monitors real-time voltage and power draw and its where AB gets its reading from the VRM´s! wink.gif

Stock bios come with 250W TDP (AKA PT) so when its at 100% you will have 250W of power draw, if you increase it to the max stock 106% youll get: 250x106%=265W
The same is with modded 300/400/500W bios what you see in AB or precisionX is the percentage above what you set!
Ex: with a 500W bios (Slider set to maximum of course) you see 60% usage, this equals to: 500x60%=300W
YOU CAN DIRECTLY CONTROL TDP WITH THE SLIDER! thumb.gif

Now, why has AB a 300% slider while PrecisionX uses 200% for the same bios with the same PT?
Well, AB and precision have different interfaces so the readings are different for the same thing, just keep in mind the base TDP value and make your calculations from there
It doesnt matter what the % slider is in any program, just increase it if you having stutters or frame drops and when making calculations always make them from the base TDP:

aW x b% = cW (a= bios base TDP, b= OSD TDP, c= aproximate power draw)

The easier route for you would be a second psu + addpsu to link both together. That would be the cheapest way while having the potential to reach higher W capability. So, you would add a second psu (let´s say a 800 or 900 w model with a strong 12 v rail lane. If you don´t want that route you should get an EVGA 1300w PSu (best PSU for the buck from what I read over reviews).

Many thanks, had looked at a 1500w evga but the £400 odd price tag put me off

Cheers for the input, i have been considering the second psu option mainly to power the water system
