Potential conflict?

Hi all.

Could anyone see what might be causing me issues with this situation?

I built a PC for my work and for some reason whenever I use a EVGA Geforce 1080 Ti in the system then it crashes and becomes unstable. It works fine with just a GTX 1080 card. I was hoping that I could run both cards at the same time, but it just crashes when I use the 1080 Ti.

Cheers, Jamie

If the 1080 works fine, no instability or other issues and installing the 1080 ti causes crashes it sounds very much like a bad GPU.

Sorry I should have added that was my initial thought too, so I managed to get a replacement GPU card from EVGA, but the same happened?

What PCI-E devices do you have in the system now?

Just the GTX 1080 GPU card.

Okay and the system does turn on with Ti installed but crashes shortly after?

Yes, boots up fine. It even works for a short while rendering in Octane, but will inevitably crash before long. It also crashes every time I run a GPU stress test.

Okay, for starters I'd just reset your BIOS to it's defaults just in case something was changed or you've for whatever reason got a problematic overclock. I doubt it will actually fix anything but give it a shot and I'm going to look around a little more for what's wrong with this.

Thanks ctbyte01 I really appreciate that.

I’m pretty sure that I tested it with the bios reset to default, but I’ll test again later (unfortunately I can’t for a few hours).

So do you think this sounds like a good process? Use GPU-Z to do a clean installs. Remove the 1080 and replace it with the 1080 Ti and reset the bios to default?
