Burning gpus out - Page 2

post #11 of 30
I'd run a single GPU in the slot that keeps burning them up cause that is probably the culprit...bad PCI-E slot

That PSU is of high-quality, so I'd rule everything else out first.

Who gets Quad-SLi 480's and runs them from el-cheapo PSU?

I'm getting an inkling of troll here, anyone else?

What brand are they?

Might be able to call in warranty and RMA them.

It could very well be your Motherboard's PCI-e slot.

Try another card in another slot with a different 8+6 from your PSU.

This is what I would do. To test my theory, use a different wire like fr0st. said.

sounds like the PCI slot to me.

Normally you dont get 1 bad rail because most of the time when you have 8 rails they are actually virtual rails.

It may be your motherboard doing it, I seem to remember that motherboard catching on fire when having a huge power draw.
