There is a possibility that it is a PSU problem.

I'd take them all out, test them one by one.

It's be a bit hard because you're watercooled though.

When i replace the top gpu with another one it works,but all i did was went in game mild overclock and another shut down.Seems just to be burning the top one out

Possibly. Could be wrong tho. Don't have too much experience with this stuff. Maybe the PSU is supplying bad power through just a couple of wires.

According to newegg, your PSU has 8 12v rails. Does anyone know if it is possible to have 1 bad rail?

if you have a cheap brand PSU, the ripple effect at its highest power draw can fry electronic compronnents
