My new STH10 build - Page 26

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.
