card drivers do not support gen 3 x16 lanes and system BSODs after few mins of intense gaming. i tried updating card bios, Mobo bios has latest ver. installed, not to mention i have asus gtx 680 running with a problem. i tried fresh install of windows, disbaling gen 3 psi-e card still BSODs. i should have done my research before i bought it.
i have 3 asus GTX680 running in 3way sli, i bought this card thinking it will run cooler: 3 fans after all. card ran cooler. . . but due to the way the heatsink design it was blowing heat down towards the board and upwords towards the side where intake 200mil fan is. CPU ran 5 degrees higher, 3 other cards were sucking the hot air in and running 10 degrees higher and thats with a case with 2 rear 140mills exhaust fans , side and front 200 mil intake fans, have CPU water loop rad at the top with 4 120mils exhaust.
returned it to Newegg, they wanted to refund me 100 dollars less for the "free" games considering i didnt use the codes and was willing to return them, long talk with a rep and they did give me a full refund. just be warned.
