run a bench and watch gpu-z the VDDC Current will raise until your psu gives up
ok some progress......i removed optical drive cables plus one fan cable and ran 3dmark11.got error "Workload Single init returned error message: File: device.cpp
Function: void __cdecl eva::d3d11::device:
impl::initialize(class eva::d3d11::device &,const struct eva::d3d11::device_creation_parameters &)
Expression: D3D11CreateDevice( adapter, parameters.driver_type, software, parameters.flags, ¶meters.feature_levels, static_cast<UINT>(parameters.feature_levels.size() ), D3D11_SDK_VERSION, m_native.receive(), &m_feature_level, m_native_immediate_context.receive()): DX11 call failed.
Also VDDC current increases to about 9.0A and falls to 2.0A during the test.....at idle it shows 2A with 100/300 core/memory speeds .......................Edited by skyline385 - 12/14/10 at 3:37am
