Stable under stress testing, but..... - Page 3

post #21 of 24
That sucks. TBH, I would just RMA the GPU just to save you from the stress, headache, and wasted time. Then, when you get the new card, you will know for sure that any instability has to do w/something else.

I also forgot to add, don't forget your PSU could be causing the problem too. But, it will be hard to test that if you don't have an extra one to swap.

IOH Core voltage is easy, if you are running a single PCIe card (graphics card), give the IOH Core 1.1V, two graphics cards 1.15V, three graphics cards 1.2V, or four graphics cards 1.25V. If you plan to run bclock frequencies far beyond 200MHz, sometimes it may help for the IOH core to be even higher.

QPI frequency = bclock x QPI clock ratio:
QPI or Quick Path Interconnect is the Intel communication path between the CPU and the X58 chipset on the motherboard. So all devices not controlled on the CPU die itself have to communicate with the CPU via the QPI. The PCIe controller is located on the X58 chipset, all of your storage devices, NICs, audio devices, USB devices, etc….they all have to communicate with the CPU via the QPI.
Haha. I adjusted that and it flew into windows without a hitch. Most commonly, it crashes on windows start up. I've rebooted about 10 times now. So far, so good. I don't know if I want it to crash so I don't feel dumb. Time will tell. Time to beat the crap out of this thing for a bit.

Wishful thinking

It only made it about a hour before the video crashed giving a BSOD 116, again. Ran memtest as I slept with no errors. I know electronics are quirky when they start going bad, so this RMA time. Thanks for the help. I hope this isn't a perfect card I'm sending back.

**edit - Thanks for all the help. I'm rebuilding my loop with a few new fittings and tubing trying to clean it up. I'll RMA my card and post pics when I get it back up, if I don't smash this thing to pieces before then

I'd like to thank everyone in this thread for the ideas and help. I grabbed a friends GTX460 and popped into my computer for one last ditch hope of not needing to RMA my card. This would have been my first step if he'd been in town, but he wasn't. It's my GTX470. I was stable at 4.5GHz with his card for 24 hours. Glad EVGA has a good return policy.
