gtx 570 problems :(

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, been a lurker for a few years now, I've finally found some spare parts laying around and figured I'd order a new MB and a few other miscellaneous parts and slapped it all together.

I've seem to run into a problem with my GTX 570 card. On my last rig, if i even inch up the clock speeds for the CPU(not GPU) the games become unstable, graphics card goes crazy, blue screen and you know the whole deal.

On this new rig i built, hoping that everything would go by smoothly (in which it didn't). Everytime I installed win 7 or XP, the computer would hang and shut-off without promt(almost like you would pull the plug out). I've been working at it for a week now and still haven't been able to figure out the problem, talked to EVGA tech support and they said to try some audio deletion method, STILL didn't work. I've deleted and reinstalled windows 7 way too many times for my own good and now am hoping someone may be able to help out before i send the card back to EVGA.

Anywho, i'm wondering if anyone's had any experience with the m4n75td board with the EVGA GTX570 SC? And if any other suggestions, it would be great.

P.S. I'm 1000000000000% positive it is the video card because i've tested it on my 8600GS and a ATI card I had laying around, ran for 12 hours straight without any problems whatsoever, plug in the GTX 570 card and the whole computer hangs again RIGHT after the welcome screen. Also I've checked voltage in bios and it was set at 12.096v on the 12v rail. Any more info needed just let me know. Thank you!

Another option is your PSU not giving enough watt to the GPU.
The 8600GS is very "light weight" compared to the 570.

Have you been able to test the GPU on another computer, to see if it runs ok?
If it doesn't, you will have an easy case with EVGA to RMA the card.

If it runs fine on another computer, but not in yours, and the 8600GS runs ok, it could be the PSU dying.

But first, if you can, test the GPU on another computer.

The problem you're describing is a power supply problem. Get a new PSU, problem solved.

Yukss, its the same as GPUs.
One can get a perfectly good 570, and a second person can get a dead 570 right out of the box.
Its not unheard of that PSUs die

Thank you for the quick replies guys! it's definitely not the PSU, 12v rails looks great, at 12.096v.... i know for sure it isn't because on another setup the video card was running okay, but if i even go a few Mhz over stock clock (CPU, not GPU) the thing goes crazy with blue screens. If I leave it stock clock it runs okay..... I also know for a fact that the PSU is not stressed much because I've also got a secondary PSU to run all the accessories (all 12+ CPU fans, 10 HDDs, 2DVD drives, etc.) leaving the PSU to only power the MB and the GPU card.... still, same problems persist. And like someone said, they've got not one, but two of them hahaha..... i DO see like someone spilled something on the bottom of hte pcb board of the video card though, there's certain parts near the solder that's not shiny.... Do you guys think that might be the problem? It may just be solder flex and i'm being paranoid, but who the hell solders piece by piece with their hands on these video cards lol

Thank you for the help guys, just finished with support, they're sending me a new video card in a few days, in the meantime while I still have mine's. Besides PSU, anyone know anything else that can be wrong? i'm thinking of running a voltmeter to my 12v rails and see true voltage and see if it dips so low the PSU dies will that be a good idea?

welps.... before i sent the card in, had it checked under voltage run, it kept a constant voltage until the computer abruptly shut down after start up, seems like everything was fine up until that point...... Sent in the card and will let you all know the results

If the computer actually shut off rather than restarting the drivers or BSOD, it really sounds like it's the PSU...
