serious display error

Hi all,



Here is my system specs:


mobo: asus P9X79

cpu; intel 3930K (water cooled corsair 100i)

ram 32g corsair dominator (1800)

GPU 1: w8000 firepro

driver: 13.352.1014

Drives two monitors

GPU 2: nvidia titan black

driver: 347

Does not drives monitors, it is used only for  simulations

PSU; 1000w Silver stone strider plus

I got 5 fans, noctua.

The tempertue at basic operation:

mobo: 35 c

cpu: 43 c

Under stress:

mobo: 39-44

cpu: 59-66

The CPU overclocked to 4100mzh

win 7: latest update

I do a lot of 3d and video editing, that s why I need those cards.

Lately I am having random errors from my W8000. I have to emphasize that, it happened time to time even before I started to use the Nvidia card as a 2nd card for simulations.


I have 2 monitors. One plugged into the first display port slot on the w8000 card and the 2nd monitor is plugged into the second display port slot  also on the W8000 card.

I does not really matter what I do, it is very random, the monitor that is plugged into the second slot and it is the main desktop, switches off, goes black. Sometimes I am lucky and got a win system message that says something like: the system recovered from a serious display error.

If I am not lucky then it switches off. What I tried is that I pulled out the blank monitor and plugged it into an another display port slot on the w8000 card and it always works.

I also tried to install the latest driver but it was even worst, made C4D crash all the time, plus did not fix that display error problem.

I have this problem with the w8000 probably from the beginning, when I used to have only one monitor. The same problem occurred, but not as frequently as lately. It made me worry to be honest.

Do you have any suggestion what could be the problem? Is there anyway to monitor the GPU temperature if it matter at all?

Thank you!
