I have tried running my CPU at stock settings and the random shutdowns continue. I noticed that they are more frequent when I turn up the fan speed on the Titan.
Has anyone else had these issues? Am I not getting clean power to the card, or is it known that some Titans are bad?
I have two Titans, so i'm going to test each one. I'm hoping its just that one of them is bad. I have 3 days left to RMA it.
It seems my PSU was the issue of the crashes... Sorta... I recently bought a Corsair AX 1200i (platnium series) Since installing the new PSU, I haven't had a power related crash like I described above. BUT, I have since updated my firmware to this one... - "BIOS4.rom" from the pack linked to on this page - http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?&m=1891166&mpage=1
Here is the actual download of the firmware package - http://www.mediafire.com/?lse3s8ej296fqyb
I have also since updated my drivers to the latest 314.22.
My current issue now is that I can be playing mid game and my game screen will go black, the fan speed will revert back to 30% and then the game comes back up but instead of 60FPS, I'm getting like 15 - 20FPS. If I end my game, windows freezes.
has anyone else had a similar issue like this? Also, can anyone recommend a firmware that actually cures the throttling issue? There are a BUNCH of new firmware's floating around and I really don't want to have to try each one.
