killed my 580?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I got a mcw 60 on the card, and last month on the 95 deg days. my gpu was @ 52 deg and seen a graphical glitch then had frezze, then reboot and post screen looked messed up. So i grab 285 i got for back up and works fine , took the 580 to buddys house and Loaded up bc2 and played the game and then it happen again (he has ac in house and pc in basement) SO filled out rma and now i decied to hook 580 back up and was playing nice, yesterday i was able to play bc2 for ~4hour and no errors. Now window wont boot up, so grab 285 and works good. I wish the 580had a pbc temp sencer Or memory sencer.

So now i need to get a few bucks and send it in. anyone have problem like this, i need to get a full water block for card now as i dont have cash to send 580 back in or get the water block for it,.

has anyone killed a 580 besides me ?

You only put a heatsink on the GPU? Nowhere else? No wonder it blew up.

How much is it to ship it USPS? Can't be that expensive...

You didn't have cooling for the RAM/Vregs?

Did put the heat sink on the cards VRM and memories?
Think of the video card pcb, like a motherboard.

Do you need to cool your mobo's vrms? Yes, same with video card.
Do you need to cool your memories? Yes, same with video card.

If you didnt cool the VRM its a good chance they blew up.

They can operate up to 120ºC i think. But if it stays long enough at that temps, it will melt down.....

My 580 routinely goes over 70 C under load, and I've never had any problems with it. I've had it for about 4 months, and it's overclocked to 850mhz/core (shader linked), 4196mhz/memory. It never goes over 1.08v, though; it sits at .96v when idle. Have you done any hard/soft volt modding? Has this happened with any other games beside BC2? There are a bunch of programs that will tell you temps and clock speeds; I think GPU-Z will do it. EVGA Precision lets you see that stuff in-game.

I tend to run the card's fan at high RPMs (75-85%), especially during this hot weather.

Also, have you tried any other drivers?

well i put extra memory heat sinks i had on the stock cooler and had a580 cover from a buddy and cut it for tubes for the mcw60 on it, but the card had no temp on it just on gpu block . So the stock fan would blow across the ram sink an cool it. but on the 92 degs days was to much if you got a 580 and take off heat excanger off it , it hows the 580 gpu core and keep the stock plate on it becase they dont make a 580 mc60/80 cover for it like 5870 cover i got or the 285 covers, if i would of kept the stock cooler on it it woul of die faster because i was helping the card with the ram coolers on it.

Yes i tried diffent drivers 260-280, still happens. Now i cant get into windows it load up with windows logo but as it about to hop in windows restart. so revoived driver. I wouldof thought it mite be something iffent becase last night i was gameing fine then powere down an now today wont power on . On the 480s i was foling with them 100% of the tim if not gameing an not the 580 , i can hit 950core @1.15 but i have not been overclocking card in a long time becase msi afterburner crahed in bc2, and ya i tryied il2 just cause 2 and lfd2 mafia 2 ect...

He has a core only GPU water block, if he didnt heatsink and put a fan on his VRM and memories, there's where the problem lies.

Hate to say it, but I think you killed it. The way EVGA ships their cards works. Yes, they run hot, but my 560ti has yet to die. By modifying the card with aftermarket parts and those parts causing damage, you've voided your warranty.

When you go to water cool, everything needs to be covered. Especially on a high-end card. Passive cooling (like you were doing on the RAM and Vregs) won't work.

wow no one sesn pic of the 580 with out the gpu block it. it still cover the memery and vreg just took off the part that covers the gpu it self the memery and vregs where till covered by stock cooler and i but extra ram coolers on it all over the dam thing to keep it cool. if I would of left the stock cooler on it would of overheated faster, it was the ram and vregs overheated, the gpu never got above 52 on high overclock on stock clocks it dose not get over 42 degs. as i don have ac in house so the abite temp rose. the cooler on 580 is in 2 parts. need to fin pick so u all can see, i put the ram coolers on it after.

Nope 580 still works. put her in and removed drivers and back working again had future mark running on her for about 2 hours so she is good now to cancel rma just need to sell water blocks an a few pcs to get full cover water block WOOT.
