Could the PSU cause this freezing? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
if only the PCB wasn't blue.....

Nice card, but it completely clashes with my all red setup. Probably going to just wait it out until 7xxx and get whatever reference cards come out then. 1 6950 and a boatload of 5870s should hold me over nicely.

btw, is the non-reference one any more or less quiet?

The Non-reference is quieter indeed.

At 50% it sounds like the reference at 40%.

So after all it was a great deal buying that card. tongue.gif

I have seen evidence to persuade me to believe that you could be mistaken.

I just tested this. I have an EVGA clocked to the specs of an EVGA SSC 8800 GT (700/1728/1000). It draws slightly more power than a standard 8800 GT, but nowhere near as much as an HD 6950.

On a Q6600 system with a fresh windows install using an Antec 430 watt power supply, it freezes in Crysis and crashes to the desktop. Exact same set up with a Corsair 700 watt power supply IT NEVER CRASHES. Both power supplies are of decent quality. Obviously the Corsair is the superior unit.

430 watt = Crashes to desktop at demanding parts.
700 watt = No Crashes at all.


I suspected this because I've seen exactly the same thing with a 6800 GT and 7600 GT on systems that I owned many years ago. When I upgraded the power supply (or disconnected all of my additional drives), the crashing to the desktop always stopped.
