GTX 480 issues

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
update : Memory is probably going bad. Can't even log into windows without getting red / blue / black dot pattern on my screen.


Swapped out my GTX 285 for a used GTX 480 I just bought. Starting to run into all sorts of issues with it.

First of the card seems to hate HDMI adapters. Can't use two HDMI adapter cables for my two monitors otherwise my monitors will just go blank at random.
Single HDMI there is still issues at startup. Fine, switched out for regular cable.

After pushing the card yesterday to 900 core and couple driver crashes now the card just hates overclocking. I gamed all day yesterday at 875 core @ 1.063V without issues. Now I can't even overclock the card through Afterburner in Windows without everything crashing / freezing / display going blank.



tl;dr Should I just clean install Win7?

Sounds like a card that is on the way out...but yeah if you want to cut to the chase and rule out any software issues a fresh Win7 install couldn't hurt.

The hardest I pushed this thing is 910 core @ 1.1V. Memory wise I never went past 980Mhz. Has to be left over nVidia driver elements that I just can't get rid with Driversweeper.

my gtx 480 can do 850 core on stock volt of 1.05 and I've tried max voltage that was allowed on msi ab ( I think 1.138) or something and tried 900 core and it didnt work(driver crash)

So I think you maybe expecting too much oc? also pardon me for asking but what drivers and what version of msi afterburner are you using?

My frined upgraded his rig from 2 9800 gtx+ to 560ti and he would keep getting artifacts and bsods. So it could be some of the residual drivers left over or such casuing the problem. If you could reformat and do everything over and try games on stock first and it still does it? I would think it's the card's problem.

I tried that once, on air w/ stock cooler. Core temp barely hit 70C at 85% fan speed.

Max i pushed on air with low ambients and a savage fan profile was about 880 core,anything above just crashed after few minutes regardless of the voltage,took water to get anything above.

So you say its crashing now even with a slight overclock?
Try fresh driver install first...
