It must be the PSU then, because this is now happening only after rewiring it.

Mate this is exactly what was happening to me as well. It would just freeze at the windows loading screen. Eventually I started getting random restarts during BIOS. And then I started getting freeze at the POST screen.....its obviously nothing driver or windows related

Something is definitely shorting something. Double check all connections and disconnect anything unnecessary. Connect your GPU2 to the V2 connection on the HX1000. Disconnect all drives except your primary drive

Read this thread: http://www.overclock.net/windows/971351-plagued-random-restart-bsod.html

Connect your primary HDD, WC Pump and fans to V2. Also connect GPU2 to V2.
For GPU1 and the motherboard power connections, use V1.

Ok I think I just came up with a solution to figure out, definitively, what the problem is. I'm going to take apart the computer completely (it's almost time to clean the loop anyway), and then:

1st, I'll try it as is, just to make sure it's not a short like TimeChange is suggesting.

2nd, I'll take the PSUs out of my girlfriend's PC and my sister's PC, connect their grounds and run my PC off of them together. This way the load can be split across two known working PSUs and they'll be powerful enough to handle it.

3rd, I'll take the GTS450's out of my girlfriend's and sister's PCs and SLI them on my motherboard.

This will tell us the status of both the PSU and PCIe slots. If either one fails, we know where the problem is. If they don't, then it's definitely one or both GPUs.

I won't be able to get any results until tomorrow though. It's late, and it takes a while to disconnect a WC system and switch back over to the air coolers.

If you haven't; please check this review of the HX1000.

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...=Story&reid=89



Noticed the +12V rails? Corsair split it in half 500w on v1 and 500w on v2.

You might want to separate the load of your GPUs. I hope this one resolves your issue once and for all.

I just realized maybe your GPUs are riding on the same rail.



Check this graphic below;

Blue labels 12V1 - right column
Blue labels 12V2 - left column

Nope, one is on 12V1 the other is on 12V2.

You guys are gonna love this.

I switched the cards back to their air coolers to do those tests and I figured hey why not test them out one last time before taking the whole motherboard out and yeah....they're working lol.

So it looks like this whole time one of the waterblocks was shorting out the card, lol.

Glad you got it sorted out in the end. I guess it shouldn't be hard now to find out if there are any microscopic leaks.

Yeah, I'm gonna put the blocks under some high pressure flow (as in, I'm gonna hook them up to my garden hose) and that should tell the whole story right there .

I knew there was shorting involved!

Glad you got it all sorted out

BTW, HX1000 and GTX480 SLI are a match made in heaven.

A waterblock shorting a card? lol

Well, now that the culprit is identified, it is easier to rectify.
