GPU overclocking causing crashes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I've been playing crysis 2 for a while now and I'm crashing at least twice a night. Any suggestions would be helpful. I'm playing along fine, and then my screen either goes black or green striped. My speakers emit a loud noise, and the system is unresponsive. I have to do a hard power down to get my computer back. Could this be not enough power from my power supply, or are my cards overclocked to much, or is it not even a graphics card problem?

I have two of this card:

with a mild overclock of 900/1325

and this power supply:

My temps are a bit warm as I'm waiting for two replacement fans, but still very acceptable (not over 70C for the cards, and the CPU gets to 50C)

Thanks for your help!
Thomas

Sounds like video cards. Try running them at stock. That way you'll know if it's your OC, your cards, or something entirely different.

alright I'll give it a try tomorrow. such a mild OC though? should I try bumping voltage up on the cards a bit? They're at stock right now, Im just using CCC to OC right now

If you don't crash with them at stock, then it's your OC and yeah, bumping the voltage a bit may fix it.
