    Hi everyone,

    I own Inno3D’s iChill 1080ti Herculez model. It comes with 11 GB.

    Currently, it is set up with a 4K monitor and another regular 1080p monitor.

    Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a lot of BSOD’s with it that comes and goes. The screen suddenly quits – I can hear the audio working in the background working for about 5 seconds, before iits frozen completely. Occasionally, it beeps but there’s no way I can bring it back. Tried the CTRL + Shift + Win key

    Sometimes, its frequent – sometimes after a few updates and less time gaming, the BSOD doesn’t happen. When it was frequent, the only time I could get away with gaming is reducing my resolution down to 720p

    Now it has come back with a vengeance/ I have tried every conceivable trick in the book:

    • Removing Drivers using third party tools like DDU using the Safeboot procedure.
    • Installing either older or newer drivers
    • Disassembling the GPU and changing its Thermal Paste (worked for a week)

    I’ve also noticed some fluctuation in its heat management. At times, it idles at 43 Celsius. In other times, it idles at 52%

    • I’m trying to figure out what if the issue is:
    • PSU related
    • Manufacturing Issue

    Maybe it’s not meant to handle a 4k Monitor?


    As a LAST test, I decided to run a Stress Testing on Furmark. Last 5 minutes till it hit 81 Degrees. Afterburner at the time was configured to give an allowance to 90 Degrees.

    This is my DXDIAG

    Happy to repeat whatever tests you guys want me to do to get to the bottom of this.

    Thank you

    Download HWinfo64: https://www.hwinfo.com/files/hwi_704.zip

    Download 3DMark: https://www.futuremark.com/downloads/3dmark.zip
    • Install 3DMark

    Run Hwinfo64
    • Sensors Only
    • bottom right - Logging (start that)
    • Leave it running in the Background

    3Dmark > Benchmark > Firestrike
    • Run the Firestrike DEMO | Benchmark
    • [Compare Results Online] is a Webpage
    • Post Link to Webpage here
    • Close 3DMark
    • Expand the GPU Rail fields in HWInfo64
    • Get Screenshot(s) HWinfo64 showing all info
    • Post screenshots of HWinfo64
    Please do not get fancy and make 1 large screenshot
    • Just get me 3-5 screenshots showing ALL of the HWinfo64 information.

    Do not attempt to [ALT]+[Tab] during the DEMO | Testing or it may crash.
    • Let the whole thing run without messing with it

    The LOG FILE that is created, put it in the FIRESTRIKE Folder, upload it to GoogleDrive.
    • Do not put it in a PRIVATE section.
    • Post the Shareable link to the Firestrike Folder in GoogleDrive
    (Watch the POPUP, as it might not be the Shareable Link)

    Log file is the Most important part.

    If the computer reboots or crashed, I want that log file as it is still created.

    As predicted, the screens black screened (with audio running in the background for about 8 seconds)

    This is logging file you asked for

    Update:

    I ran the test again having boosted my fanspeed to 100% Temp limit to 90. Power limit to 104 and giving Power Priority in After Burner. The simulation went all the way.

    Here is:

    Update 2:

    Ran the test again. it crashed.

    Switched GPU to different slot. Crashed.

    I'm beginning to suspect that it's really just a power problem.

    GPU:
    GTX 1080ti
    Slot power maintains a steady +12v
    12v8p 11.8 minimum
    12v6p 11.67v minimum

    you are using a single cable with a 8 and 6 connector on it? try using 2 seperate cables instead, otherwise there might be decay in the socket/plug.

    Mate. You may have just single handedly solved all my problems in one swift stroke.

    I'll report back in a few days, but so far, the results are night and day.
