Because your card is running 91c and is experiencing thermal throttling. I would suggest putting an AIO cooler in place of the GPUs heatsink.

I was experiencing the same thing with crossfired r9 290x and that solved the issue.

Good luck...

Oops. I see that you are running 91f not c, thats fine. More than fine. Must be something else...

It is running at 31 C = 91 F. Those are 91° Fahrenheit, which is the same temperature as 31° Celsius.

Yeah I caught that after I posted, 31c indicates it certainly not getting very hot smile.gif probably should be warmer smile.gif

I think I'd run DDU in safe mode and then reinstall the drivers if you have not done so already... maybe you have leftover bits from another display driver.

It's because the kingpin 780ti is gimp ed with the ln2 switch. You fix it by flipping the switc. But it's immaterial now because I sold it to buy a gtx980 matrix. I hope this thread helps somebody who has that card still. Thanks for your responses guys.

Do you mean by getting a 980 over a 970 something else, yes smile.gif

And Asus is also an excellent brand, but I have no idea if its the best 980 but i bet its close to the top smile.gif good choice smile.gif
