    If you lowered clocks good good enough and it still shuts off then probably it is another problem. Create a topic or search for help in official GT780 owners thread.

    There could be a lot of things. If it is shutting off when the GPU is not fully loaded and running at max speed, it is probably not the AC adapter. It could also be something with the system BIOS if that model was never sold with the GPU in question. Especially so if MSI does nonsense in the BIOS to block aftermarket upgrades.

    There were people successful with MSI GT783 and 675M GPU so as long as you have the latest BIOS you don't need anything to do with it. Of course you could take a pencil's erazer and clean contacts of GPU. Or check temperature of GPU. Or test another AC unit because mine is 180W, not 150W.

    Of course you also can flash vBIOS of 570M which will kill your GPU but at least you won't have that random shutdown :vbrolleyes: What if previous fried GPU somehow damaged motherboard?

    I posted on 9 forums, including tomshardware(there was no answear) This forum and an Romanian Softpedia forum were the best answears.

    I already flashed gtx570m VbIos worked whitout problem.
    I think MOBO is damaged, but anyway I send the GPU back to china :)

    I saw response on MSI forum few weeks ago that 675m worked good on battery but connecting AC made loud sparkling sounds and Win10 screen of hardware malfunction.

    I do not know that there is a good solution except for using antique drivers. These last two that I modded were the last two that allowed 780M SLI to function correctly. It seems like NVIDIA has pretty much just blown off all Kepler owners, and Maxwell will likely follow soon now that Pascal is out. They don't care, unfortunately. They know about it and have never lifted a finger to fix it.
