The tale of two systems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

I hope I can end my frustration in this forum!

Here is the problem:
PRECISION X or MSI AFTERBURNER + GTX 690 = Crash @ stock speed

I got two fairly identical built:
#1
Intel 3770k
Asus Maximus V Formula (latest bios)
EVGA 690 GTX
Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR 1600 MHZ (4x4GB) clocked @ 1600 MHz
Corsair H100i
Corsair 1050w psu
Chronos 240 GB SSD
Samsubg DVD
Win 7 Pro

#2
intel 3770k
Asus Maximus V Formula (latest bios)
2x EVGA 690 GTX sli
G.Skill Ripjaw 2133 MHz (4x4GB) clocked @ 2133 mhz
Custom Watercool (2 loop)
Corsair AX1200i psu
2x Plextor 120 GB SSD (Raid 0)
Samsung DVD
Win 7 Pro

everything in those 2 system is at stock
WIndows fully updated
software running for both system
Corsair Link 2
CPU z
Real TEMP

When I run Intel Burn in test (maximum) 100 pass, with Precision X or After Burner. The system will crash at one point or another. Precision X will crash or BSOD or just reboot. (note video card(s) are not overclocked at all). CPU temp in the low 60c

When I run the same setup whiteout Precision X or After Burner everything is fine.

Everything is a stock speed.

I built a similar system with a GTX 780 and NO problem with Precision X or Afterburner.

What am I doing wrong?

PS: My only Solution so far: Start Precision X, overclock the card then exit Precision X, then Intel Burn IN test (100 pass) and Heaven 4.0 (max setting for 12 hrs) ru without any problem. But I miss the OSD

Or Course. I got all the latest drivers for everything. Tried NVIDIA latest 3 drivers.

I have to ask...why are you trying to overclock an SLI GTX690 system. They're already loud, hot, and overkill for anything.

That is the whole point:
1. They are no overclocked (I just want the handy OSD for temp, FPS etc...)
2. They are not loud the are booth water-cooled.
