Severe Problems with MSI 6870 Twin Frozr Card - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all your help...

Last thing.. I just put my case side panel back on while and nudged the PC to the side.. Guess what? Same red lines with very slight touch to the case.. The card is attached properly, screws tightened and firmly in place in the PCIe slot.. Come to think of it, the same thing happened when I tested it in a different PCIe slot.. Could the motherboard have some sort of short?? I know I'm gasping for straws, but I don't want to rule out anything before I RMA the card.. Would hate go through all the trouble with MSI only to find out that the replacement card is having the same issues.

The only way to answer that is to test it in another system. You are taking the right steps to rule out everything else before RMA.

Woah.. Now entering the twilight zone..

Removed the second screw from the lower part of the card which looked to be slightly bent.. Tightened the top screw as much as possible to prevent the card from sagging down... Just ran 10 minutes of OCCT with no crashing..

Could there be a short in the card or the MB/case? Something not grounded properly?

Sounds like a loose contact. Play around with it a bit will find out for sure. Or the PCI bracket is over stressed or PSU ground cable to the wall. Check everything.

Yup.. It has to be... I closed the case and then ran OCCT and boom, immediate red screen and flashing red..

What is the correct method to clean the contacts on the actual card? As stated, the problem also occurred on the 2nd PCIe slot..
