    Okay guys, this one has been driving me absolutely nuts.

    So specs are up to date, issue seems to be the 1080Ti but i hope I'm wrong.


    I usually had my power limit set to 117% in MSI AF and have had no issues with that OC. The only thing that recently changed per hardware has been my wifi card which is the Rosewill AC1900 PCI card installed since my last USB card didn't play nice. Rosewill site was down but a member mentioned it's a TP-Link Archer rebrand so I stuck those drivers on and it was a clusterf*ck of who knows of crashes and lockups and wifi being all weird but it finally straightened out.

    Another buddy of mine was hitting 2200mhz-ish on his 1080Ti and used EVGA Precision X to overclock, which includes voltage control over MSI AF. I gave it a go and while tweaking voltages to the max monitored change of 1.05v it didn't do the same goodness as MSI, so I uninstalled it.

    Queue the beginning of the TDR festival.

    I've had iGPU issues with a rainbow flashing monitor off VGA on the motherboard, I've had lockups with either the iGPU outputs flashing or the entire dGPU outputs going poof. Entire system lockups where it looks like a picture spanned across all four monitors. (VGA monitor taken down)

    I thought maybe the EVGA stuff didn't reset so I reinstalled, hit default MANY times and the sliders did actually default back, saved, uninstalled. Ran the card at stock and seemed okay for a bit but nooooooooo here comes the TDR failure again multiple times and the sudden lockups.

    I've reinstalled the drivers MANY times on both GPUs, used the 381 NVIDIA one and whatever Intel has up to date and lo-and-behold everything is okay. Ran my VM, played PUBG with a buddy and whatever else I usually do. However today in the last hour was three crashes.

    One was from recording Killing Floor 2 at lossless, at 5760x1080, at 60fps, at maxed settings, at once. Safe to say I found the limit of my machine.

    Second was the dreaded TDR failure, again.

    Third was a full system lockup.


    Mind that with the power limit maxed or not it seems to have the same effect. Event logs don't say much and BSOD reader comes up with NVIDIA driver error but drivers are clean and have been cleaned MANY times. There isn't a pattern that I can see happening besides the frustration this brings.


    pls halp.


    EDIT: Thermals are all okay. Was about to type that in when a full system freeze happened again. fml

    I left the memory alone and right now everything is stock. Just had another crash so I'm going to convert the wifi drivers over since it wasn't TDR and see if that helps.
