Auto Rebooting Rig for Stability

My rig of 3 GPUs seem to be hanging every few days. I am wondering if it is common to reboot the rig everyday for continuity?

    I changed from win 10 to Pimp OS because of this. What OS are you running?

    No it's not common if it's not stable then you've done something wrong with the overclocking or undervolting. Rigs should run for weeks without even looking at them.

    It used to be able to run for weeks but it seems that the GPUs are degrading. They can no longer sustain the same clocks anymore.

    I am running Windows 10 Pro.

    This is stupid. If there's a problem - fix the problem. Freya had an issue with a GPU dropping out around once a day, and it was because the cable leading to the riser on that GPU was melting. If I'd done something like this, I could have started a fire.

    I have checked the risers, nothing is melting. I did notice that the wattage pulled from the wall is creeping upwards, was 540W previously but now using 550W-560W. I am not sure it is the GPUs or the PSU. Perhaps I should reduce the undervolting on Afterburner and see if it increases stability. The RX470 attached to the monitor used to be able to do 1126/2060 clocks but now I get loads of errors instead.

    Quick update: Yesterday, my 2-molex-to-8pin cable melted. Good thing I was at the rig trying to optimise things and spotted the burning. Just plugged in a replacement but it seems that such products seem to have questionable quality.

    Good catch, but yeah avoid adapters man.

    I put in a replacement and noticed the replacement showing signs of being burnt or overheating 2 days later. Any idea on an alternative for 2-molex-to-8pin adapter? My PSU only comes with 2 8pin cables.
