anyway I'm happy it seems fixed now.
I've seen it take 45 minutes or more for issues to develop.

I just redid the cabling a bit on my mini-miner recently, which currently has 5 NIVIDIA gpus of 3 different models on it. So far it seems that arranging for no more than 2 connections to a gpu or pcie-extender card per power cable regardless of connector count on the cable is working better. V=IR
