ASUS 560 Ti Bad memory?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have had this 560 gtx for about 24 hours, and ive already started to notice really odd problems, like, the first one, got this card in my machine furmark on it, no problems, crysis 1 , no problem,so i decided to see how far i could go.

Not long after, i max it out at 990mhz from 830mhz, so i thoguht this is pretty decent at standard voltages, left it at a healthy 970, fired up crysis2, and the only time i could get it to run properly was at no more than 850mhz otherwise drivers would mess up, but oddly carry on...

i also noticed, the card wont come back from screen saver mode after night time!

ignored this anyways, and fired CNC 3 KW, first 20 mins it got an out of memory error, any ideas??? is their a program that tests graphical memory?

typically when your card's drivers recover, your card drops back to stock clocks FYI. at least in my case.

If you are getting a memory error, i would just RMA the card. If it was just crashing I'd say lower your OC or raise your voltage.

To test video memory stability, I personally use the heaven benchmark with all the settings maxed out. For your 560, that should be just enough to max out vram.

Umm...

That's an insane overclock(970+) at stock voltages. That pushes the limits of what it can do in general, and that's not memory you're overclocking, that's the gpu itself.

Unstable overclocks can do all sorts of weird errors. If you want to overclock, you're going to need to put more voltage into the card, the card's memory is fine.

I forget what I can get my 560TI to on stock voltage... i think it caps at 925 stock.

I don't think the memory issue is related to the OC... I tried going to like 975 myself stock without any memory errors... just the driver crash

I am downloading the benchmark now, back with my last card, i had similar problems with my 8800 gts 320mb it used to have memory errors but used to have very weird glitching problems so i had to rma it and got the 640mb one back, took like 3 months to get it finally sorted

I don't see it mentioned, but do you have the card's memory overclocked at all?

Right, ive just run that heaven DX11 Benchmark, and it didnt have any issues, but i noticed the frames didn't change at all with AA on 8x or off, which was really weird ??

and as for the overclock, currently no, after i noticed crysis 2 blacking out every now and then, i took off the overclock
Not really much point clocking memory when your having problems

so what is a typical overclock on a 560 at standard voltage?

Hey people, i think i found the problem,
Took PrimeBurn's advice and started looking into my memory a bit,

Found out my memory doesnt like being clocked between 1002 and 1008, causes small system hangs but at 1000mhz or 1010 to about 1040 its fine anymore and it doesnt like it, this cards default is 1002 mhz, bit random (blame asus) also the gpu doesnt like being between 990mhz and 1ghz, i can go over a ghz, or below 990, just between 990 and 1ghz it causes problems no matter what voltage?

I had this same problem with my 8800, it didnt like runing at 600mhz all games caused problems, til i got past 610mhz.

stupid card

Oh yeah, made it just over a ghz (1010mhz)at about 1.125 -1.137 (havnt finished testing)
