It has been a while since I have posted here but here goes.
So I am still running my 2600k on my P67-ud4 motherboard and my coolermaster 140xl pump took a dukie on me and the computer was sitting for a good 30hrs at 97c degrees so long that when I replaced the 140xl with a Corsair H100i GTX the nice chrome CPU retention Bracket was gun metal blue!! Not Good!
Anyway the system is running fine with apparent complications, but 2 days later I noticed SLI on my 2 4gb GTX770 classified cards was disabled so every time I enabled it my frame rate would plummet from 60+ to 25fps.
This is after extensive testing with 2 instances of GPUz running to see if the second card was working and its usage was topping out at 75% when they usually hit 99% usage, also the clocks and everything were normal and proper. Anyway I removed the cards again and swapped positions of them and the PC booted up but i had weird visual corruption on like half the screen so i tried it with just the second card alone and the same thing.
So I am saving for a GTX 1080 since I am running 3440-1440 resolution and War Thunder is sucking well over 3.2 GB of Vram which surprised me....I am still getting 60fps+ in a plane which is my realm but in a tank unless I lower the visual setting it is in the 40s which is unacceptable" on another note so many people play games at 20-30fps...Ewe ! and how LOL
So i am curious do you think Baking my card might Revive it or do ya think its not even worth the try?? I recall doing it with my xbox 360 and a older AMD card x800xt but I have no idea If micro fractures in the solder effect the never GTX 770 series cards?
Thanks for any input
Also I hope bad things do not come in threes for my PC.
