Having problems with my unlocked GTX 470

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have this PNY GTX 465 for about 10 months, unlocked on the first day i got the card, im having few problems with it recently.

1.) i will see red dots all over the screen sometimes, like dead pixels.
2.) the screen will turn black all of the sudden, then i will get a msg saying the video driver wasn't responding, something like that.
3.) i will get really slow motion on video, but the computer is running fine in the back. then the screen will turn black after couple mins, i had to do a hard reset.

current spec: stock GTX 470 speed, tried .987v, 1.0v and 1.012v, still no luck.

if i decided to send the card back to PNY, of cuz i have to flash it back to 465 before i send it in, will PNY send me back the same black pcb version of the 465 or the blue PCB ones, or i will get an upgrade from PNY since there is no 465 on their website, and every where is out of stock. did anyone have RMA experience with PNY before, thank you so much.

Edit: tried reinstalling windows 7, same issue.

You would most likely get a refurbished one or blue PCB model - try upping to maximum in afterburner (1.085), if it doesn't work, try flashing back to 465 bios. If you are still having problems with the 465 bios, THEN RMA it

Sounds like a dieing card. Have you blown out the heatsink real good? Whats the temps at idle and full load? Has it been overclocked and for how long? You can pop the heatsink off to make sure all the pads are making good contact and reapply better tim on the gpu.
