I've seen some of the same transparency/artifacting you mentioned while playing it myself but only the once. There are a few settings in the game that cause a lot of stutter and lag, I also found that running the Uplay launcher as admin stopped a lot of the game lock ups.
Are you running the game across all 3 screens? if so at what settings? Watch dogs is a killer of Vram and puts a strain on my cards..
It is only Watch Dogs at this point now, yes, but see my last post about GPU-Z readings and I have a feeling if I had any other heavy games like this they might perform funny too.

Definitely not running it across all three displays, since it's such a heavy game. When I have my display set for surround (a virtual single display) it disables SLI, which I need to run the game at a higher framerate.

Also... I'm not high... at least not right now.

Heaven runs a good 40-50fps with only VRel. Furmark (mother of god, btw) VRel for about a half second, then Pwr, then after about 15 seconds, Thrm.

Both tests are designed to get every bit of performance out of your cards they can. Furmark is absolutely brutal with video cards and, as I understand it, both AMD and Nvidia tried to outlaw it several years ago. They both put your card under more stress than any game ever will. If you can pass both of those tests, You have a game issue. It seems to me that your cards are doing much better than they were when this thread was started.

No doubt they are, I haven't had it give me a driver recovery bubble or a random reboot since we did the fancy re-install. My only question now is what are those parameters on GPU-Z about Vrel and Pwr, and are they relevant to any problems I might stumble across elsewhere?

Mainly I'm asking does my PSU suck?

Corsair is a top notch PSU and while it does happen, it is unusual for a Corsair PSU to be bad. I am running a Corsair and own 4 of them in other rigs. If you have reason to believe it is the PSU, fill out a ticket with Corsair. They have a good warranty. That being said, Watch Dogs has caused quite a few people problems, some with better hardware than either you or I have.

I meant is 750W enough for all my hardware? I didnt plan SLI when I picked the PSU.

From what I find the estimated max power draw for 2 X 760 is 343 Watts. The recommended power supply is 700-800 Watts. Source

What voltage rail do the cards source off of? Another thing I was thinking when it had Vrel errors is if Vrel is a voltage error, then maybe too much current through the source wires (causing a voltage drop due to low gauge wire) heading into the card from the PSU. I have additional leads since it's a modular supply.

Try another lead if you like, it can't hurt. But, GPUz, like most other software has to fix a reason, and is not always right. It has to blame something. Consensus of opinion is when your cards are maxed out, they cannot continue boosting to infinity, basically what it's telling you is your card has boosted to it's max capacity. That is my understanding on the readings I have done. GPUz will tell you on the main page what your max boost is. If you are very close or over that, you have reached the max boost without overclocking it.
