My new STH10 build - Page 26

post #251 of 257
Thread Starter 
Problem solved today thanks to gridironcpj

He had the same stability issues with his system except that he is running one TXP and I'm running a pair in SLI. The solution was to apply power to the addition PCIe port next to the video cards. Once I did that, I reran the same benchmarks. This time no restarts. I had previously had this plugged in when I was running 3 980Ti's and had removed it for the TXPs. And I am now once again able to use the PCIe ports 1-4 on my power supply. As I said in the TXP thread, Apparently running a pair of TXPs and a 6950x requires more power then I anticipated.

Just saw this, maybe it's the color contrast but I love how the brown noctuas pop out from the black case.

I ran into another issue which contributed to my power issues. The power cable running to my Bitspower hub is insufficient causing my system to shut down when I was overclocking. After I realized what the problem was I grabbed some 16 gauge wire and ran a new cable. I then raised my CPU to 4.3GHz and ran some benchmarks. No issues this time. I'm beating some of my personal records in 3DMARK.

I can now safely say since my last post I have had zero power related issues. I'm very happy about that. I have been maintaining my overclock settings and running a bunch of benchmarks and stress tests. I also reincorporated my 4th monitor again which I removed while I was running 3 980Ti's

If you read this post in the TXP owners thread I apologize but for those who have not this was my quick write up pertaining to multi monitors running under dual TXPs in SLI.

This applies to anyone who is running multi monitors or thinking about it. Running TXP's in SLI mode.

My previous configuration was 980Ti in triple SLI mode. I was driving 4 monitors. 1 at 4096X2160, and the other 3 at 2560X1440. All were under water. Driving 4 monitors in that configuration gave me nothing but headaches. Half the time during boot up, The resolution was off, and slow boot times. It got to the point where I dropped down to 3 monitors. After I did that my issues were resolved and it was business as usual.

Fast forward 3 months ago and I upgraded my GPU's and CPU to my current configuration. I forgot to mention that I also upgraded my CPU from a 5930K to a 6950X. I was still running the same 3 monitors I did with the 3 980Ti's with no issues. So today I decided to add the 4th monitor to see how the TXPs would perform. Again all connected to the first card which is running in SLI. First thing I tried was powering cycling my system to see if the system would show the proper resolution from a cold start. No issues. I did this a few times just to make sure. My experience with multi monitor systems running NVIDIA drivers are that you have good days and bad days. Regardless, I saw a much noticeable improvement with stability. Next thing was the benchmarks. Again, no issues their.

So the take away from this is that it looks like Nvidia has made some remarkable improvements in regards to multi monitor systems under SLI.

My next project which I have been decidedly lazy to begin will be to completely remake all of my power cables, and possibly my USB cables as well. I have purchased 360 feet of this wire,
https://www.moddiy.com/products/Premium-FEP-Silver-Plated-Copper-Wire-%28Cu%7B47%7DAg-16AWG%29.html
an additional 400 Molex brand Mini-Fit Jr pins, and an entire brand new set of connectors from Mainframe Customs. The wire was actually purchased from PPCS, but I used the link from MOD DIY because they show examples of what the wire looks like when used. For this new cable set I will not do any sleeving at all because the wire looks that nice. That should make it go a lot faster. All of the wire will be in 16 gauge to ensure I have zero power issues. The Molex pins are specific to 16 gauge wire.
