570gtx Problems

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm having a lot of trouble overclocking my 570gtx. My card is stock at 780/1900, I've been trying to reach a core of 900mhz.

I ran my card at 900/2000 for about a week at stock voltage. I was able to play Dead Island, Red Orchestra 2, and the BF3 Beta without any crashing. However, about a week ago Dead Island started to crash about a minute after loading. I tried increasing the voltage a little, when I did this the screen would go black for a second then turn back on. I checked my GPU moniter after this occurred and apparently the card loaded up the stock speeds. The same thing occurred in Red Orchestra 2. I then decided to bump the voltage up to 1.1v, rather than the card reverting back to stock speeds the fans rocket to 100% and my screen goes black. I'm forced to restart when this happens.

It's strange because I'm able to stress test my card for hours without any errors or crashes. I'm only experiencing problems with a handful of games. I can play GTA4 and the BF3 beta at 900/2000 without crashing. The games that crash are not as graphically intensive as those two games, which is why I'm confused.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions?

Games are hard on video card "overclocks". I use Afterburner profiles and overclock a little when gaming.

The only time you a big overclock is for benching. Your benchmarking software and gaming software are two different worlds.
IE you can great overclock (max) that runs fine with Mark3d. As soon you try to play a game wit that smae oc it crashes.

That kinda what you are looking at right>?

What do you use to stress test your cards? The 570 will detect when programs like Furmark or OCCT are running, and throttle down accordingly, so they're useless for stress testing (unless you disable OCP, but that's really not recommended ). Alternative stress tests that don't trigger OCP include 3dmark and Heaven.

Also, what drivers are you using? Do you ever get crashes at stock clocks & voltage?

That must be the cast then. While browsing through the threads a 900mhz is very attainable. At least half the people who posted in the 570gtx Overclocking thread have reached that core. I've reached it too while benchmarking.

I just find it odd that GTA4 and BF3 Beta don't crash at 900mhz, but Dead Island and Red Orchestra 2 do. I thought BF3 and GTA4 would put more stress on the card causing it to crash. Maybe Dead Island and Red Orchestra are programed horribly causing instability with an overclocked card? It's just really confusing me.

I've tested with Furmark and the program that comes with MSI Afterburner. Both programs displayed my overclocked speeds while testing and so did Afterburner in the background.

I'm using the 285 Beta drivers and have used the 280 drivers with the same results.

I've never crashed at stock speeds and voltage.

I must have the worst 570 card built. I just tried playing Dead Island @ 830mhz, and you guessed it, crash. I swear I was running @ 900mhz for a week without any issues, now Dead Island and Red Orchestra crash with the slightest overclock.

I don't understand why, considering more GPU intensive games don't crash. I can guarantee you this will be the last Gigabyte product I purchase. I got a pre-overclocked card with the thought that it would overclock nicely. It even has three fans with a huge heat-sink. Heat is definitely not an issue, I rarely run hotter than 64 degrees.

Leave the memory clock at stock and try to get stable at 900 first. What is your stock voltage?

Use Heaven or 3dmark to test instead of Furmark.

There is a theory that pre-oced card may not be a good oc card.

which Gigabyte model you have?the first GTX 570 was from NVIDIA card,and then gigabyte have own windforce 3x fan~the 3 fans design better than NVIDIA first.

Stock voltage is 1.0v. I have the Gigabyte card with 3 fans.

I had success turning my memory back to stock, I was able to get up to 830 on the core. I then bumped my memory up to 2000 from 1900, then crash. I then returned the memory back to stock and still crashed. It doesn't make any sense. I was running fine at 830 before I adjusted the memory clock, and when I adjusted it back I still crash.

This card is being a real pain, I'm starting to regret buying it, maybe should have went with a 6950 or 6970.
