Hello all, I have never posted on forms of any kind before and for the past 8 months or so I have had nothing but issues with my new build. Im not going to go into depth about the first issues I had but my GPU ended up being DOA so I sent it back and the sent me a new one, no problem. I installed the new card and it worked for about a month or so and I stared getting black screens, super slow/choppy responsiveness and sometimes would just freeze (epically while using an internet browser.) Recently I started getting multiple black screens at a time and I decided to take a look at my event viewer and saw the iconic "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered". I decided to take a look in my system 32 drivers and realized the driver was NOT there?? I am beyond confused and I am very desperate to get this fixed. I have run stress tests, Mem86, and other things and have all passed.
My Rig: Intel Core i7-8700k 32GB G Skill Trident RGB Ram Asus Maximus X Hero(WiFi-AC) Mobo Asus ROG STRIX GTX 1080 EVGA 850W Super Nova Power supply.
Please help me. This is beyond my comprehension. Thank you.
Sometimes combining two memory kits with the same specs works without issues and sometimes it can give you problems which could be happening here.
Fist thing I'd try is, at the very top of the Dram Timing Control page set Maximus Tweak to Mode 1.
Maximus Tweak Mode 1 - helps with compatibility Maximus Tweak Mode 2 - helps with overclocking
If that doesn't help, try setting your ram manually with these settings and see if this stabilizes things.
Dram Frequency - 3200MHz Dram voltage - 1.40v CPU VCCIO voltage 1.15v - 1.25v CPU System Agent voltage 1.15v - 1.25v
Enter the primary timings at the top of the Dram Timing Control page. There are four timings but you will enter three numbers as the middle two are tied together, for example if your primary timings are 15-16-16-36 -2T
15 16 36 Command Rate 2N.
F10 and Enter to save and Exit.
If this doesn't help, try each 16GB kit separately to confirm there are no issues.
Hey Nate, Just got a checkered looking pattern on my display, which happened last time I was having issues, I sent the card back and they sent me a new one but the problem just came back.. Any ideas? And ill be sure to try those settings!
No luck, its now artifacting and freezing like crazy. Should I contact ASUS for another gpu RMA?? Maybe even a mobo RMA? This has been going on for almost a year and I don't know what is going on anymore. This isn't my first build but this is my first ASUS build and I have had nothing but problems.
Hey Nate, Did quite a few things yesterday to take into account. I plugged my buddies 1060, put a fresh install of windows 10 on my ssd, tested the ram by each pair at a time, purchased a 1000w power supply to see if it was a PSU issue, still persisted. Moved the 1080 into a different PCI-E slot, Tested RAM in different A1 and A2 sets on mobo. No difference.. Is there a chance that it is the mobo?
