Is this the reason my brand new MSI 580 GTX Lightning gets errors in OCCT GPU TEST? - Page 2

If you're getting errors while overclocking, then that just means you are unstable.

If you're getting errors on all stock settings, then that means the card is unstable and could be defective.

Just a heads up, I had a similar situation where my card had errors (MSI TF3 GTX 570) and when I increased the voltages all the errors went away, so I thought maybe the factory just gave it too low of a VID... here I am a month and a half later, my card is no longer stable with any voltage and is in the process of RMA.

I don't know but from other GTX 570 owners the 2200 memory is way too high. maybe this is the reason why the card is unstable.

The errors and artifacts were there from day 1 before the memory was ever touched. I can assure you that.

OK good luck RMAing the card

I haven't been able to figure out from the responses, but OP, bone stock (everything, not just your card), do you get crashes?

The GPU at stock everything is when it is reporting errors in OCCT and that is <THE ONLY> problem I have had with it, no artifacting in games or anything like that.

I did have freezing when downloading from steam at the same time as playing videos/games but it turns out that was my network adapter having problems with Windows 7 which I have since fixed with third party drivers, it was never the GPU.

So basically yeah, the only problem I have had is OCCT reporting errors. From what I have heard though, OCCT is very good at "predicting the future" so to speak and will show errors that I may not notice now but will get progressively worse over time and which I will eventually notice unless I fix now.
You have been misinformed, OCCT is not a good stress/stability test for cards with over current proctection such as yours. The fact that you got errors in it is bad, because that means that you got errors when your card was running at half speed half the time, but OCCT reporting 0 errors does not mean a card with OCP is stable.

Throttling due to OCP (Over Current Protection) makes OCCT a useless test. Just because it can detect when a card is broken and give errors does not mean that it giving zero errors means the card is stable. What is the point of a stress test where half of the time the card is running at half speed? Read these two reviews(TPU, Anandtech to learn more about OCP if you don't know about it but it is a useless test to use on cards with OCP, it provides no useful information.

For testing stability for cards with OCP I like Unigine heaven for about 45 minutes to an hour, Crysis Benchmark tool, for 45-99 runs, and the games that you play on the card. Basically just do with it what you need it to do and if it has problems doing that then do what I suggested before which is lowering the clock speeds, raising the volts, or both. Good luck and hopefully your card will continue to be or can be made to be stable in the tasks you need it to be.

I don't think there's much you can do then. The card is operating "normally" as far as any sort of warranty goes, so you'll likely have to put up with OCCT not liking your card. But that does not mean that it's any indication of how the card will fare later on. If it's behaving normally when gaming, then just ignore the errors that OCCT shows, because it really doesn't matter.
