    G'day everyone!

    I've held off from seeking online help for a while but now I'm becoming desperate.
    Let me first off say that I know my way around a PC (both hardware and software) very well, but this issue has me stumped.

    It started a while ago, my screens would go black and eventually turn to "No signal" or "Signal out of Range" and eventually my PC would hard crash and reboot its self. It become more and more common (used to happen maybe once every 5 hours, then 2, then 1 and now seemingly randomly (within 30min).

    What I have tried:
    - Memtest, ran for 6 passes, nothing.
    - Booted with all combinations of my RAM (1 stick, swap it to another slot, then to another... 2 sticks in different combination of slots)
    - Used 1 GPU, swapped PCI-E slots. Then tried the other by its self, same thing.
    - Reinstalled windows (Thought it may have been a drivers conflict)
    - Installed Nvidia drivers I knew to have no issue with previously
    - Took apart my PC and put it back together
    - Used a housemates graphics card in my machine, still crashes.

    I'll link all of my crash dumps. Please ask if there's anything else you'd need to know.

    At the moment I'm currently thinking it is a faulty power supply or a faulty Motherboard, but I don't have the money to replace them at the moment.

    My current PC specs:

    CPU Cooling: Intel RTS2011LC Liquid Cooling System
    CPU: Intel Core i7 3820 3.8GHz
    PSU : Corsair TX-750M Modular
    MOBO : ASRock x79 Extreme3 (I will never go AsRock again)
    RAM : G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-12800CL9Q 16GB DDR3 (4x4gb, currently running two to reduce power consumption)
    GPU(s): Nvidia GTX680 Superclocked 2GB
    Nvidia GTX680 Superclocked 2GB (SLi)
    SSD(s): Intel 330 120gb SSD
    Corsair 120GB SSD (can't remember model)
    [b} HDD[/b]: Western Digital Green 2TB

    Thanks if anyone can help!

    Sorry your topic has been overlooked - do you still require help please

    If you do please attach your last two dumps as compressed files here.
    On your reply click go advanced and manage attachments.

    When you did this
    was it using your connection cable - if so and you have not tried it - try another cable - from card to monitor

    G'day, thanks for the reply!

    Turns out it was my power supply slowing dying, it eventually just died and could only power one or two of my case fans. Bought a brand new 850W Platinum Corsair PSU and it's working fine.

    Thank you though!
