Completely sick to my stomach, as this build has been such a pain since last December.
1080ti sc2: Originally worked for few months then game would freeze when things started warming up. I kept a close eye on temp and everything seemed just fine (never reached 75 degrees).
RMA'd and got a 'new,' GPU of same model in April. Worked great until once again, a few months later. Note: When I had fans spinning 100%, games wouldn't freeze.
The first GPU was a used mining card so I figured that i took a risk there, but the one that came in RMA looked brand spanking new. So now I'm wondering if there's a flaw in my system that's causing the GPU to break. Any ideas? Temps are low enough, plenty of air, etc.
I'm currently performing a clean install of drivers to see if that helps any. If not, I guess it's another RMA.
Update: I installed my gtx 970 into same build, working no prob.
