GTX 770 sli random black screen (works fora while then randomly does it) temps always around 60c at full load and 30c at idle

I have had this ongoing issue for quite sometime. It all started after i started to play aion again i would get these random black screen freezes where i couldn't tab out or ctrl-alt=del only option was for a hard reboot. Shorty after i decided to rma my psu to corsair along with a few other products which were not working properly (corsair these days are good for nothing unfortunately)
long story short i get a new case to get my gpu temps down and achieve a 10c difference :). upgraded from windows 7 which would not let me use corsair link the provided software for my all in one water cooler kept giving me a strange .NET error. I then upgraded to windows 8 and solved that issue shortly after putting in my new components i was playing war thunder and the artifact (pixelated white blotches allover) and crash happened but this time to my surprise it didn't make the game crash it became responsive again ???? i just so confused.I dont think my graphics card is the issue here could it just be driver/ BIOS any help is greatly appreciated :)

  1. Best answer
    I would first roleback to the drivers that kept them stable (if you updated them) or if you didn't update them, I would try to update drivers to the newest STABLE DRIVERS (go to the nVIDIA's site or their GeForce Experience and look for the newest WHQL). Try that for now and post the news.

  2. i went through the last three series of drivers and the issue is recurring. just had it crash on a youtube video sound looping and waited then finally got a bsod
  3. Then try disabling SLI and remove 1 GPU, after that play the games that knew to crash. Keep the results (e.g. stable, no flickering or freezing - whatever knew to happened) then do the same test for the 2nd GPU. If it's to the GPU (either of them) you can get a refund or trade it for a working card. If it's not to any of them, it could be an SLI (most likely), CPU...
    Then post the results.

  4. will do, also talking to nvidia right now he said to do the same. Just ran all the 3dmark benchmarks on the main card without any freezes or issues ..... wow very odd it seems as though the main card i use runs most games better when its alone have had 0 problems so far im gonna test the other card soon gotta run a few more games. Goddd could all these live chat support technicians be any more useless. they might as well be automated machines repeating the same useless crap over and over

    Just used 3dmark on the second card and still no freezing stayed around 60c the whole time in is it something to do with the sli bridge perhaps? I THINK I FOUND THE CULPRIT. after running 3dmark on the second card i was on a webpage and this happened
