    So I have been getting blue/red hues across everything in 3D Mode; I tried different drivers, different clocks, stock voltage, etc.

    eVGA asked me to check my 12V rail in the BIOS and mine came up as 11.88, then the eVGA 2nd Tier Tech Support informed me that must be my problem. Do you guys agree? They say I should go with a single rail high amperage model in the 750-850W range by Corsair or PC Power Cooling.

    This seems really odd to me because this card has been doing fine for a few months and now my PSU is the problem?? What do you guys think?

    yes, single rail high ameperage would be better OR a multi rail thats capable of combining rails, that is get more power from other rails if needed though i dont think theres too many like that.

    Your PSU may not have been able to handle the loads you put on it for very long and is degrading and can no longer provide enough power. but i would try other things first just to make sure.

    unless the psu is going bad its not that.
    i had sli 260 on a quad np with that psu.
    they said it was the psu that was the problem last time too didnt they?

    It's possible, I've always preferred single rail PSU's anyway. PCP&C has a 910w one out now that's supposed to be pretty amazing. You can also spend a few more bucks and have them build a completely custom one, that's what I did.

    That should easily cover your system so evga are just speaking crap.

    Doesn't sound like much of a tech to me. :wanker:

    Should be checked under load, with a multimeter.

    If you really have a SeaSonic M12 700W 80+ 56A you should be completely fine. As a matter of fact, your 700w psu can handle gtx295 sli

    Assuming your monitor isn't fubared, I would try some really low clocks (eg: 2d clocks for 3d mode). If that works, I would RMA the card

    But no one has any ideas as to why I'm getting these color artifacts?

    Also we did do a load test with OCCT, came back at 12.8V with %0.67 ripple

    Just say to EVGA that you tried a different PSU and its still the same then RMA

    Cause it does sound like something on the cards gone wrong, I think EVGA are just being awkward about it TBH.

    Just to clarify this is what I'm seeing:

    I guess I could just tell eVGA that, but what if it really is my PSU? How can I rule it out?

    I've tried 182.50, 185.68, 190.15, 190.68 and get the same results.

    Can you try another card?

    Or another PSU

    i guess if you tried another card and its the same it would be the psu.

    But i've never heard of psu making that ^ happen.

    LedHed. Isn't that Nvidia 3D Vision feature? disable it from nvidia control panel or uninstall it from "Programs and features" control panel.

    I thought it looked something like a 3D Effect as well. :3eyes:

    I have 750W PSU with 11.87V on 12V rail and it works fine. Are you sure graphics isnt broken? i would try it in some other computer...

    Put on a pair of 3D glasses and your problem is fixed.

    There is nothing wrong with your voltages or your PSU which is in fact a single rail design anyway. The red green and blue elements that make up a screen are stored in different parts of VRAM and what you are seeing indicates that some of your VRAM is bad and the frame buffer is displaying that.

    Just to rule it out, have you tried returning your CPU and Memory to stock, does it make a difference?
