I did shut down the computer, and when trying to boot I get stuck at bootup wit "Fan Error" press F1 to enter bios

Why is that? Something to do with the GPU OC? Have not seen this before

EDIT: Fixed it, dont know what had happend. But I changed some of the fan-plugged in the MB and now it workes! A second primetest over the night!

Sleep tight =)

Good Morning:

Another question: Theese settings, are they only applyed when I have the specific program running? And with the changes there? Because when I turn off the programs the cards OC is not there anymore? A I supposed to just OC the cards before playing etc? I thought that this made changes on the card even without having the program running?
Nvidia Inspector Tool did not have a custom fan-changing-program as the afterburner had. Can I change the fan-settings in another program? And if so, is it the same with this one, that I have to have that program running for that changes to appear on the card?

I have recently clocked my cpu for the very first time, I managed my 2500K to 4.6 with 1.36v.

Now its time for the GPU but I must admit that I dont understand this.

I have Zotac GTX 580
I have downloaded afterburn 2.1 and FurMark.
In the afterburn program I have enabled so that I can change the settings. But dont really understand the FurMark program or what I am going to look out for when testing.
My temps are going up to 90* pretty fast when I have theese settings, then they are stabilizing around 89-90 degrees.

SETTINGS IN AFTERBURN NOW:

Core Voltage (mV) : 1025
Core Clock (MHz): 810
Shader Clock(MHz): 1620
Memory Clock(MHz): 2040

There isnt a good guide to clock this card what I have found out. I have the stock cooler. Have also downloaded GPU-Z.
I understand that Im not supposed to touch the Core Voltage, and that maybe I am going to start with the Core Clock settings. Then start the FurMark. But Im beeing afraid to ruin something, because the temps are so high and I dont know if thats normal. Am I going to watch this FurMark for something in the picture, like colorspots or something? Dont really understand this.

Please help me understand what to do here!
My default voltage is 1.0872v. I found out that default voltage can vary from GPU to GPU. I was always wondering why other people would get lower temps than me at stock core default voltage.

The GTX 580 SC is 3% gain higher than a GTX 580 vanilla. So I'm going to post with that in mind these below specs from my SC to vanilla. The vanilla flavor can OC just the same btw.

39-40C idle @ stock 797Mhz core / 1594 Shader on SC which is a 3% gain over vanilla stock which is at 772 Core / 1544 Shader. Default for SC.

40-42C idle @ 838Mhz core on SC which is 8% gain over vanilla stock. 838 Core/1061 Memory/1676 Shader.

42-43C idle @ 855Mhz core on SC which is 10% gain over vanilla stock. 855/1086/1710

43-44C idle @ 875Mhz core on SC which is 13% gain over vanilla stock. 875/1111/1750

44-45C idle @ 890Mhz core on SC which is 15% gain over vanilla stock. 890/1135/1780

To go higher stable I have to bump my GPU to 1.1000 voltage.

45-47C idle @912Mhz core on SC which is 17% gain over vanilla stock.

Now when I OC I bump up across the board for Core / Memory / Shader to be exactly the same percentage gain on each GPU-Z validation.

I got clocked to on my final score front page proof 3D Mark 11 score of 6902. On an i7 950 @ 3.8Ghz OC - GPU 1.1000 voltage @ 912Mhz core.

I don't need to OC at all. My card is playing Crysis, Metro 2033 and Crysis two easily maxed settings including AA. Battlefield 3 is going to be awesom on just the one card in the fall.

My strongest suggestion is not to go over 1.1000v on the card. It can do it but your crossing into dangerous territory unless your 580 is under water. Good luck, have fun, and OC safely.

Thanks! I have stopped now at 1.075v with a temp on 80* at load in heavens benchmark. I managed exacly now to adjust the voltage in afterburner, so Im using that one instead because of the fan-control option.

I got the settings to:
Core Voltage - 1.075v
Core Clock - 865Mhz
Shader Clock - 1730MHz
Memory Clock - 2200Mhz

I think I can crank it up even more, but dont think that its worth it, so I am pleased with this "small" increase.

The question about if the OC is still there even if I restart windows is still there. Or do I have to change some settings, etc "General properties"-->"Start with Windows"

That is solid overclock there..

If there's any such option to Apply overclock setting on a system startup then turn it on..

I'm using MSI Afterburner and there is such option,and also option for Afterburner to start with Windows..

CHEERS..

It should be below your profiles on the main page of AfterBurner, not in any of the options. That should be all you need, atleast for my version of AB.

If there is a option to set it to start up with Windows then do it..

As in that case you'd be able to make any changes faster..
