#230394 GPU possibly going bad?

Posted by Sonder13 on November 28, 2017

Please tell me oh Gods of NVIDIA!!!




I think I've solved it for now. One card was running old drivers and the other was up to date. First and hopefully last time I ever deal with that. 

#230392 GPU possibly going bad?

Posted by Sonder13 on November 27, 2017

Operating System: Windows 7

Motherboard: ASUS X99 Deluxe

Graphics/Video Card (GPU): 2x EVGA GeForce GTX 980Ti

Processor (CPU): i7-5960x

Hard Drive (HDD): Samsung EVO 850 1TB

Memory (RAM): G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB DDR4-3000

So I think one of my GPUs is on it's way out. I've been experiencing more and more frame drops when gaming as well as lag. To combat the issue I've rewired what monitors are using what GPU to see if that fixes anything. My next step is switching the PCI slots the cards are in if this doesn't fix anything. So couple of questions. 


1) Outside of 3D Mark what other ways are there to stress test and just make sure it's all working like it should?


2) Would running SLI possibly extend the life?


Anything anyone else thinks of please let me know.

Salty, That would be amazing. 


The main reason I am looking into it is to introduce my daughters to gaming in the same way I was. I want them to experience what games were when I was a kid. Games were so much fun then and less complicated. Now there are so many variables in gaming that one can get overwhelmed and lose interest very fast. I want them to appreciate them for the fun and not all the fluff.

Who uses them and which ones?


What games are playing with your emulator of choice?


Do you use a controller and if so which one?


If you can please try include some links because google is hard :)

I stole mine from the interwebs based off of a made up definition of Sonder. 

n. - the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

Posted by Sonder13 on February 21, 2017

I'm a lighting designer in the Music industry. I came up in the hip hop world working for Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Common, and such. From there I jumped into EDM working with ODESZA, Bonobo, Big Gigantic, Pretty Lights, and Bassnectar. Now I'm in the pop world working exclusively for Jason Derulo. I've also been involved with a ton of other one off projects around the world.

Hi everybody! (please read in Dr. Nick voice),


I guess I've been around the Discord long enough and thought I'd swing through here and do some type of proper introduction.


I'm Sonder, or Rob IRL. I'm a 34 year old father and husband. I have identical twin girls who make me appreciate the little things more and more each day. I'm also a lighting designer in the music industry. Some of you may have seen my work or didn't even realize that it's actually a job.


I travel entirely way too much and like to decompress playing games. I play a bit of a lot of things, H1Z1, Overwatch, BF1, R6 Siege, Rocket League, CS:GO, GTAV, etc. etc.


I'm really just looking for a community to chill with and make dick and fart jokes. Other places I've been a part of in the past take it too seriously and what I've realized with GSN is that is not the case. At the end of the day I just wanna have fun playing some games. Isn't that what they were made for?!?!


So yeah, I love all of you, and I hope your genitals reach the appropriate sizes you've all wished for.  :thumbsup:
