Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

  • I did a review on Newegg about the GTX780 Ti and got a response from ASUS. I emailed ASUS this reply, Now to wait for their response. I also included a picture of the AMD monitor which showed the GPU usage at 83% and then dropping to 0% for an extended time. Hope that gets their attention that something is drastically wrong.

    Dear sir,

    I made a review on Newegg and I had this response:

    "Greetings Fred K,

    Thank you for taking your time to update us regarding your ASUS purchase.

    If you have not contacted ASUS already, I would be more than happy to assist you in this matter. Please contact me through email, including both the reference number and serial number within the subject line, and we can look into this case further. 3684213.

    Regards,

    Mark
    ASUS Customer Loyalty
    cl-mark@asus.com"

    The problem that is occurring is that the GTX780 Ti that I bought from ASUS consistently drops to 0% GPU usage and usually runs between 87 to 89% GPU usage. I use this card, along with several other video cards in other computers, for Folding at Home. All the other cards, whether made by ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, or Zotac run between 97 to 99% GPU usage. I do not know exactly why the AUSD GTX780 Ti card is cutting out like this, but its far from what I would expect. I an including a photo attachment that I took this morning of the card performance as recorded by the ASUS/AMD supplied graphics card monitor. As you should be able to see, the card is not performing well at all, dropping to 0% GPU usage for an extended length of time. I have never seen this type of thing occur before.

    The temperature of the card has consistently run about 73c, so should not be throttling due to overheat. In my opinion, something is wrong with this card. I had first tried the 335.23 driver, but that produced a poor result, so I went to the driver version 334.89 which I am using on my other GTX780 Ti and my GTX Titan.with good results.

      • The person from ASUS seems to be in denial or something. He wrote back asking these questions:

        What program are you using to stress test the card? Also how are you monitoring the card?
        In my first reply, I told him (ASUS) that I was using Folding at Home, which stresses the card heavily, and I said that I was using the AMD monitor that was supplied by ASUS with the card. I even attached a picture of the monitor showing it running at 87% and then diving to 0%.

        This is so different from the last time I dealt with ASUS, in which a motherboard I bought came with bent pins. That time ASUS sent a new motherboard with no questions asked.

        • That is the problem with doing phone support. Reminds me back when I was talking to Chevrolet (corporate) and the first person I talked to said that GM would buy my car back. The next day, when I did a call back, I talked to a different person that told me that that was not going to be possible. You could imagine how livid I was.

          Maybe you should try to open the case again. Perhaps you will get someone else who will take care of you and who knows, send you two cards as a replacement instead of one

          • This isn't by phone, but by email. But yes, I'm getting ticked off by this and if it comes to no good, ASUS will loose a customer. I'll be back to EVGA and Zotac for graphics cards. EVGA never posed a problem for a RMA and I haven't has to RMA a Zotac. HIS also did well, but I haven't seen either a GTX780 TI or Titan from HIS.

            • HIS is AMD only, isn't it?

              I dunno about you but I've had some pretty poor service from Sapphire. Tech support tends not to care about weird issues - often just dismiss it as user error.

              I would try and phone them to get things sorted out.

              If not can you RMA it directly to Newegg? Or perhaps eat a restocking fee?

              • HIS may be AMD only. I haven't bought one of their cards for a few years. After my experiences with Sapphire, I refuse to buy one of their cards again.

                I can try Newegg again, but the restocking fee hurts the pocketbook. The card works, but it only folds at 87-89% GPU usage. So I'll stick with either EVGA or Zotac after this.

                ASUS wrote back today and said to run Furmark. Furmark ran for about a minute and got the GPU up to 99% usage, so no RMA allowed. I'm kind of ticked off at the moment. Fine, one minute and the card doesn't fail, but constant load and it drops to 0 periodically. So forget dealing with ASUS.

                • Tell them that it's unacceptable that you can't use your card for your intended purpose.

                  It's about as valid as selling a car without brakes. Whilst it might technically work as a car - it doesn't work for its intended purpose and there's no point in saying "hey look it moves just fine 100 mph - so no refund sir".

                  It simply doesn't make sense.

                  • I have never had an issue with my Sapphire cards. They have been top notch. Also, as an FYI, supposedly the R9 290 is a decent folding card. Over 100k ppd I believe.

                      • After months of Fahcore 17 on the GPU client, all of a sudden I've been getting nothing but core 15s for the past couple weeks which has dropped my PPD to a third of what it was even after adding a 5th computer for folding. Wish Stanford would start issuing core 17s again. What's happening now is ridiculous.

                              • I bought a GTX980 and installed today. Its getting 296,280 PPD. In comparison, the GTX780 Ti cards get about 215-220,00 PPD. So I think this is a decent step up. Using just the GPU client alone, this computer is getting more PPD than any of my other computers using both CPU and GPU clients running a GTX780 Ti except the SR-2 with a GTX780 Ti. The next really nice thing is that its supposed to use less power, run cooler, and make less noise. All that combined makes this a very good card for folding in my opinion.

                                Now this leaves me wondering how good the PPD would be if Nvidia released a GTX980 Ti? That will likely be next year if it happens.
