I had an original Titan X for 6 months, the machine was stored safely for 6 months while I recovered from surgery, and then I played it for another 2 months before it started going bad.
Tested and tested for months, got it going somewhat with msi afterburner with fans all out, it slowly died on me. One of the things that was happening was that it would not go into pci-e 3.x mode anymore, and was getting really slow with massive popin from every game, and desktop load times in the minutes. Eventually it just gave out (fan) and started heating to extremes and wouldnt load ui at all.
Well, my rma came, I already had the AIO water cooling solution for it. It ran great, for about 3 weeks, then it started throttling (seemed like), then it started getting bad popin, and now I am only getting pci-e 2.0 again, and games are running al 2/3 their normal fps (again, just like the 1st Titan).
The only thing that hasnt happened now is the not loading ui. I still get the desktop, albeit very slowly, even the login screen half the time doesnt show me typing in my password, it just goes to desktop after a little bit. Every once in a while it will load correctly and gaming is fine, but that is fewer and fewer times now.
This is just getting to be stupid bad. The thing has been on water and 70% fan speed all the time, except when gaming where it goes to 100% fan speed.
This should NOT be happening. AGAIN.
Others have had 4-5 bad 980ti's in a row.
I have NEVER oc'ed either video card.
I routinely clean my machine of dust.
I am getting really really mad about this.
I dont have a job anymore, I am handicapped, I dont get any income at all, and now I have to rma another card. And, the one I get in return in all likelyhood will end up going bad as well.
AND I am out a AIO solution, as I cant affoed the pads that go on the Corsair AIO, since I will have to rip the foam things off to put on the air cooler that came with the evga card.
I cant afford this.
And I am very upset because this was supposed to be my gaming machine to last for at least 5 years, and everything else works except my stupid evga titan x card (yes, my 780gtx runs the machine just fine, actually better than the titan in some cases).
