This is the first 4xx series card that I've seen die and I visit many Hardware sites daily....why you would start a reliability thread puzzles me.

I've had problems with Nvidia's QC in the past, but so far with Fermi it looks as if they're doing a good job. Yours is the first case I've heard of one of them malfunctioning.

I'm wondering if the PSU is idiot proof or if you need a research grant to work out which leads to use where...

If that PSU cant do it nothing will.

Can you even the load out or something?

Yeah, that thing has *8* 12v rails. Its definitely a distribution problem.

Either the power supply is bad or something else is going on. That PSU is the one that all the Tri-SLI guys seem to be using, so I know it can handle the load.

Default Re: My GTX 480 died -- A reliability study.

I have another GTX 480 that showed some stability problems. After running some simple 3D test-app all night long, it eventually hung the computer; The screen is frozen (showing the 3D app's output) and the mouse does not move. The card recovered after a reboot, though. My first card did not have that chance and it never recovered the hang.

I would be interested to see other users run some 3D demo application for 12-20 hours non-stop to see if their graphics card can withstand it. Worst case, the card will die, as my first card did. But if the card is flaky, better find it right now anyway, ... while it is on warranty. Note that to be a good test, you must disable "vsync" so that the card is always busy.

Ozo.
