[RMA]GTX 570 Crashing on any game? UPDATE: Newegg is awesome! - Page 5

post #41 of 47
Stress test your cpu and memory first. Who knows your Dram voltage could just need a bump. The display driver crashing is very commonly caused by system instability.

Don't just start playing with voltages willy nilly. Start with Intel Burn Test and do 20 runs with max memory. Then run a Prime 95 blend test for a couple of hours. If those two pass you can be pretty sure that your system is stable and that the problem is with your video card.

I have completely stock settings on my motherboard, absolutely no settings have been changed yet.

That doesn't matter. Your motherboard can undervolt. Its new so its not like its been properly tested.

Recently when I popped my corsair Vengence sticks onto the P55 board that I had at the time it was unstable even though it was set to 1.5v. When I checked with a multimeter it was running a bit less. I bumped up the memory voltage a hair and that did the trick. It was stable as a rock afterwards.

There is no good reason to not stress test your new hardware just to be sure that everything works properly.

I ran IBT 20 times like you said and Prime95 for 8 hours. both passed and all 4 workers were still running this morning. dirt3, fable 3, fallout newvegas, and even just cause 2 (my favorite), crash. still waiting on an email from newegg.

update: I called newegg and they explained the process, it's called an advanced replacement program. they keep credit card information on file, and send you the new item. they at the same time, send you the shipping label via email, and when you get the new card you just slap it in that box and send it back.
