It sure was. I'm old school though... so what I like most about your OC is that you're at 4.5 with only 1.24 volts... now that's impressive. So far, I'm down to 1.27... will shoot for 1.24 tonight.

Anyone else got any ideas??

I'm in the progress of backing up some stuff now, Just in-case it going to be a start from scratch type of thing...

2 questions.

1)If it is an corrupt OS are there any scans that my help??

2)If I do a full back-up with Acronis right now and use that backup to restore after a clean install(format) will it be corrupt??

EDIT: I found this really old post...HERE...It gives me a little hope to not have to redo the system. I'll pull my gpu later and check it out.

Fixed

Ok guys here is an update...... Dual Monitors Are Now Working Again!!!

What fixed it?? Well that's the question, I did so many things yesterday and stupidly did not test between each of them...

So here is the low down on what was tested and what all I did....

First I reinstalled all Drivers for 2xMonitors,Gpu(clean installs) Tested after...no go.
next set system to single monitor and tested each port on Gpu one at a time...DVI(1)Dead,It ether has a pin missing or to far back to be seen. DVI(2)working fine. HDMI working fine. Set system back to Dual and tried dvi(2)/hdmi...no go.

Next, I opened case back up and pulled card again, figured I would try a different pci-slot. Moved card to new slot(did not test yet) .....Then it dawned on me that before I had this issue and before I switched cables on the monitors that I did my monthly cleaning of the case but while I was in there ...... I cleaned up some wire mess that I didn't like and moved my H70 cooler fans(2x) and pump to molex instead of the on-board fan pins(for looks only). Now my MB has two molex power plugs on it for extra power to the Pci lanes(one mid-board & one bottom left corner). Now I've only ever used one of them(mid-board) but now I thought hell!! I've now got 2 fans,1 pump and my extra power to the lanes all on ONE cable from the Psu!! Maybe,just maybe I'm not getting enough power to the pci lanes, so off to the box o wires(we all have one) grabbed a new cable to run from Psu to the unused molex plug on the MB, hooked everything back up....Powered up and .......Holy S#!t it worked, back to Dual-Monitor Heaven!!

Later I though to myself "What fixed it" the ... Added power or the Moving to a new slot??? ?

Being the I am, I've got to know!!!
So off to try and see what did it..yup going to unhook it all and try each one by itself.

EDIT: Retried without extra power...works fine... Retried back in other pci slot w/o extra power...still worked..??? I don't know what the hell fixed it?? But hey it works!!
Still got to RMA the card because of the Dead DVI(1) port.
