Yeah, the OS reinstall was what really did the trick, and also having Afterburner profile set-up at safe clocks that activate at startup has helped as well with testing settings.
Of course we are greedy
. I almost destroyed $1800 worth of GPU's for an extra dollar per day LOL.
On a side note, I think its possible that my whole system wasn't getting enough power from the wall, as I had a lot of equipment hooked up to one outlet and sometimes when I would activate CGminer, my overhead light would flicker a little bit. I ended up running my rig to its own outlet, and the flickering has gone away. Any idea if that could have been a problem and causing cards to crash as well?
