post #3131 of 5050
I've done everything to try and make my GTX 780 lightnings work well in SLI. I've just changed my motherboard from a Asus Hero to the Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5 to be able to run the 2 cards on slots 1 and 3 to allow for better cooling. Now, after close to 2 days of use I just got Nvidia driver crashes and my monitors would go blank and I'd have to hard reset the system.

More or less the same symptoms that used to happen on the hero.

I have an extended replacement warranty on both cards but I really wanted to try and keep the 2 cards for the SLI performance. The only other thing I can think of is replacing the 860i Corsair PSU with the 1200i one, if this can actually be the reason this is happening. My other choice would be to go return those cards and settle for a single 780 Ti frown.gif

Can anyone help with this? I am sure I am not the only running 780 Lightnings in SLI

Thanks.

Are you running them on stock clocks with stock voltage?  If you are overvolting, and OCing, then your PSU could be tripping, but you would probably notice that if it were the case.  Have you done a clean driver install with DDU?  Is your Windows install clean and stable otherwise?

 

I had no issues running 780 Lightnings in SLI for the last two weeks, even with a slight OC on stock voltage it was fine.  I have a mATX board, so it was hot, the top card got up to 82C.  Everything was rock stable though.   The rest of the system was using W8.1 / 4930k / x79 Rampage IV Gene / 16GB 2400 g.skill Trident / X750 PSU / HX850 PSU.

 

This past weekend I took one out to move into a different rig for dedicated folding, because well, one 780 is overpowered for what I typically do.

Everything stock. Yes, clean install. I've gone from windows 8.1 to windows 7 and after changing my motherboard to another fresh install of windows 7 and still more or less the same symptoms. The crazy part is that it doesn't happen regularly. Last nite after it crashed the 1st time, 20 mins later i ran Valley for close to an hour without problems.

I have a 4770k cpu with an H100i in push/pull in a Corsair Air 540 case. The fans on the H100i are all SP120s and the case fans have all been swapped for 3 SP120 intake and a AF140 for an outake so I think I have good airflow. When I ran Valley last nite for close to an hour the temp. on the top card didn't hit 80 and the bottom one was 10 degrees less.

Forgot to add this happened just a few days after re-doing my PC with the new Motherboard and re-installing Windows 7 and doing pretty much nothing other than playing Battlefield 4 last night. Can something be so fundamentally wrong with Battlefield 4 that can make it do this?

I don't know else to do other than take the risk on the 1200 PSU, I really want to keep both cards frown.gif

Have you tried testing the GPUs independent of each other?  I would try that, make sure they are both 100% stable.

EVGA SuperNova G2 is better in some areas and its far cheaper 100$ or more

The Antec High Current Pro Platinum is also better but its overpriced like the AX1200i is

If you can wait there is also the Cooler Master V1200 which is not out yet but will be soon

G2 and V1200 are much better bang for buck then the AX1200i

This was a 20 minute Valley run @ 1.35V:

 

 

That is the highest I've seen, 50C.  Stock voltage they only get up to 44C or so running the same test.
