So I've had a SLI setup with two 1080ti's for about a year (slightly different models but both NVIDIA (blower type and fan type) working mostly fine, recently one of the card's (the blower type) is constantly at high temp idle 68°C and Afterburner is showing the GPU is constantly in a high p-state (base and boost stuck at 1354/5508Mhz with no OC). I found out after my PC started BSOD'ing on intensive tasks.
The fan is also trying to compensate for the heat automatically set at 40% whereas my other card is sitting at 0% with the p-state at p0 (idle). If I render or do intensive stuff with the GPU,I get BSOD within about 10secs. The temperature reaches about 80°C before BSOD; I've had both GPU's run at temps higher than 86°C before for long intervals.
I have been using both cards for 3D rendering and occasionally crypto-mining (but not recently).
I have tried reinstalling/changing nvidia drivers, uninstalling afterburner, reinstalling OS.
Both cards have almost exactly the same specs/information in GPU-Z.
I can run the fan type card on intensive tasks with no BSOD.
Is it a possibility that I've burn't out this card?
Or could it be something else is causing this problem?
Any help would be appreciated!
