I didn't do anything, after installing Cat 11.7b hotfix + Cat 11.6 CAP2 and left it at that, didn't do anything with those cards. Then went to play with the new Dominator GT RAM 2,500 Mhz, rebooted to run the Memtest86+ for several hours. Came back to find all the screens were blank and the system still running. Reset the system then get the BSOD xxxx116 related to atikmpag.sys
Restarted the system to remove all drivers including MSI AB, rebooted fine then after few seconds all screens went blank. Checked in Device Manager 1 6990 was gone. The next reboot failed. Plug one screen to PhysX card to get into system and now all 6990 gone. Checked with atiflash if it was even detected to confirm if it was the cards or the motherboard and to here.....
It was not the temps or the waterblock, temps never went beyond 60ᴼC and 45-50ᴼC on full load most of the times. I didn't play with it much while on stock air cooler but noticed some inconsistencies in performance. I posted about it on this thread maybe months ago.
Oh well this is just part of the funs. It doesn't make sense but it happens lol
