Computer shuts down when starting a game? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Re-flashing is not going to fix that --- you broke the card, either by shorting something or by overheating the GPU causing permanent damage. There are safeguards in place to keep the GPU from overheating, but it assumes there's a heatsink attached properly to begin with. It's possible to overtemp and damage a GPU in mere seconds under load if the heatsink / waterblock is "loose".

Good luck with the RMA - you damaged the card of your own free will, the "right" thing to do would be toss it in the can and buy another one with your own money. It's not ASUS' fault their card got damaged, I don't see why they should saddle the repair cost .

This sounds like the vrms aren't getting a proper cooling thus overheating causing these lines and shut downs, check your vrms temps, core temps don't tell the full story.

The problem with your suggestion is: I dont just have 400$ lying around to buy a new 780ti. SO ill the "wrong" thing, and RMA it.

Sweet!

I was going to say your only solution (if you werent ready to try an RMA) would be to pull the Kraken off, reinstall your stock cooler, and test that card again solo to eliminate any possible variables. That would be a little bit of a pain in the neck

I already tried this before filing the RMA :/
