Titan X not compatible? PLEASE HELP!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have tried 4 different Titan X cards now. 1 from EVGA and 3 from Nvidia.... All of them work when I first install them. I can use them for the day but when I turn my PC off at night it. I just get a black screen on startup in the morning. My computer starts like normal and all the lights come on and fans are spinning. My monitor power lights never "activate" like they normally do. I can plug into the onboard video and it all works fine.
Even when it does work, none of the Display ports work. Although the Display Ports did work on the first Titan X I tried.

Here is what I have tried:

- Reseat card
- Tried 16x slot and 4x a lot.
- Tried a 850W PSU
- Update Bios

I am at a loss and have already talked to Nvidia Techs and Gigabyte Techs. None of them can figure it out and are just assuming something is faulty with compatibility or my something on my machine is bad. Thing is, my current Video card works perfect. It's a GTX 760.
I haven't tried to reseat or remove ram yet but that doesn't make any sense since it works with my current card. I really wanted to upgrade but don't want to have to reinstall windows and all my files by purchasing a new MB.

Here is my current setup and please help!

Intel 4770K @ 4.4ghz
32 GB Ram Corsair Ballistix
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H - Bios version F9
Corsair RM650 PSU
Corsair Hydro Series H100i
2X 1TB HDD - WD and Seagate
3X 120GB SSD - Samsung EVO
Windows 8.1 Home

hi mate, sorry to hear that,
do you happen to have a spare psu? and have you tried the card on a friends PC to see if it works?

One thing's for sure, it's not the Titan Xs that are the problem, since you tried 4, from 2 different brands - statistically, it's almost impossible that's the root cause.

Stupid question - but what monitors have you tried? I have a LG 24" 1200p monitor that simply won't work with certain video boards, no matter what I do. Issues are related to EDID data problems. Maybe you've got a squirrelly monitor? Have you tried a different one?

Other diagnostics to try:

1. Remove CPU overclock if you have one. An unstable overclock might work with one board, but not another. ESPECIALLY BCLK adjustments. BCLK should be 100.000 MHz. Run CPU-Z to verify BCLK - is listed as Bus Speed on the first screen.

2. Remove CPU, inspect socket and contacts carefully, and re-install CPU. ANY pins that are bent/damaged could cause problems. Be sure to clean off and re-apply quality thermal grease when you do it.

3. Pull half of the RAM and test with 2 DIMMS at stock DDR3-1333 9-9-9-31 standard JEDEC speeds. No overclocking.

Sounds like you already tried a different PSU. That would have been my first or second diagnostic step.

Final course of action is try a different motherboard.

1.) Reset your CMOS.

2.) Try a new PSU

3.) Try a new motherboard

If its a modular psu make sure your using the right 12V rails might be a case the card isn't getting enough power.

Thanks for the reply.
Just to reconfirm, I am running my GTX 760 again which has worked fine since the day I bought it and still works great now.

1. My BCLK is 99.98

2. Is this necessary if its been working already for over a year?

3. Same goes for this. My ram worked perfect with my GTX 760. Is this necessary? I will try it if it is.

I tried the RM850 and used my cords from the RM650 which Corsair support says was fine.

I sure hope I don't have to get another motherboard.... Reinstalling programs is a b**ch. If I do go this route, what would be the best performance Motherboard to get without getting too expensive?

What do you mean? I just plug it into the PCIE slot right? It's worked for my 760 this whole time.
