I've recently noticed that certain games and stress tests are causing my system to hard crash. Including the 4K Firestrike Ultra and recently the System Shock Remastered demo. High temps are not a problem for my SLI Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti G1 cards (temps are not exceeding 75 degrees on load). The crashes for the System Shock demo occur even if I underclock both cards. My PSU is a Corsair 1200AX and I'm beginning to suspect that it may be the culprit. I've been monitoring the voltages for the +12V rail and I'm getting a reading of 0.048V.
Any suggestions would be great as I don't want to commit to a PSU replacement unless it is absolutely necessary.
You can probably determine if it is PSU related by removing one of your GPUs and test again with just one installed (to guarantee no additional power is used by the other GPU). I also am thinking PSU despite that being a high quality PSU... anything can break regardless of make/model... 1200W is "riding the edge" of (2) MUMOD 980Ti's.. depending on your system it might not be enough (I personally use an AX1500i for (2) MUMOD 980Ti's).

Haven't encountered any freezes since changing the BIOS *touch wood*
Keep above advice if it happens again...

Would it be possible that my card is just not stable at all at 1507Mhz ?
Even if i underclock to what i was getting on the stock bios, (1471Mhz) its still not stable at all. again as always voltage and power at max?Question 2
I backed up my stock bios with NVFLASH and when i flash that backup rom its giving me a base clock of 1103Mhz, when im pretty sure it used to be 1215Mhz.
Was it a mistake to backup using NVFLASH and not GPU-Z?
GPU-Z kept on saying it cannot save the bios.
Did i have to disable it in Device manager first? DerpQuestion 3
Could someone help me find the stock bios of the Waterforce as i have checked online and haven't found anything.THANKS TO WHO EVER CAN HELP, IM KINDA SCARED I DO SOMETHING WRONG AND BRICK MY CARD derp
Check out this post
(only to be lazy and not re-type it lol)
YES it is possible that your GPU cannot handle 1506.5Mhz although it would be the first watercooled 980Ti that could not (that I have heard of).
Hoping the above post helps, let me know.
We have options to try if you have issues. Also make sure if you get a TDR to ALWAYS reboot after. If you don't you can expect oddities. Reboot sets everything straight.(2)
No, GPU-z is fine but you missed some key steps (covered in the OP on how to flash a BIOS). If you have overclocking profiles loaded @ startup that were set with the MOD BIOS, trying to load those same profiles on the STOCK BIOS is many times going to result in a "software glitch". It's not an application bug really because you can reinstall the same version and it will work just fine.
You need to uninstall ALL applications that communicate with/monitor/overclock etc. the GPU. The only one you can keep is GPU-z. When you remove MSI Afterburner for example MAKE SURE you ALSO remove all settings. When it asks if you want to keep settings you need to say NO.
Check your GPU speed with GPU-z. If back to normal proceed to reinstall all the same software. If not back to normal there's still "leftover" settings you need to find and get rid of.

Oh cool I didn't know they added a stress test. Thanks for sharing.
How does it work?

Flashing GPU = VERY stable and generally considered "Safe"
Flashing MB = Risky... I have bricked motherboards this way even though nothing wrong was done and all steps followed. Admittedly, this was LONG ago before MBs had dual-BIOS' also... perhaps these days it's pretty stable IDK, I just cringe when I think about it now
