I have been able to play DOS2 for multiple hours on my friend's 780, without a shutdown occurring. So I strongly suspect that my GPU is damaged/dying. I will be looking for a replacement after I have posted this update and maybe ask you guys for some advice.
For good measure I have done some additional testing, sadly without any success:
- used another socket across the room to connect the PSU to
- used a different (the 8x) PCI slot
- flashed back the original bios
Let's say the card is indeed damaged. Would you guys estimate that running it with a higher power limit bios has decreased it's lifespan? Maybe damaged a part of the power delivery by stressing it more than a stock card would have. It was never a good overclocker and ran stock for the better part of the last year.
I know you can never be certain about this stuff, just wandering what you guys think.
