Yeah, I tested them all one by one and everything but the EVGA works. When I tried the EVGA by itself, the fans again ramped instantly, and everything crashed after POST. My CPU started popping immediately after the crash, and the LED on my H100i flashed on and off twice and then everything stopped.
I didn't have both running at once. I closed AB before even installing PrecisionX. =/
PSU started popping? I'm sorry if you have already answered this previously. What PSU are you running? That just doesn't sound right.
Good news is that EVGA has the #1 customer service in the industry. Contact them first thing tomorrow, you should be able to setup an advanced RMA & get it cross shipped, they will even provide return shipping for the dead card.
Bad news is, we still don't know what the issue is, but it's possible it's that PSU.

Remove the two asus cards from your system, put the evga in the first PCIe slot, but DO NOT HOOK the 8-pin and 6-pin cables to it. Plug your monitor into the onboard graphics if you have them. (If you don't have onboard GPU, use and asus card in slot one and put the evga in slot two, but still don't put the power cords in on the evga unit) and see if you can see the card in device manager, if you can, you should be able to flash the original BIOS back onto the evga unit. The PCIe slot will give the card enough power to flash the rom on the card.
definitely try to do this...
Still though, all three of them should have worked properly, in unison, if they were all on the same bios.
