6950 is giving me fits! Help!! - Page 9

post #81 of 120
*fyi- Iam running sig'd speeds for CPU/GPU on a TX650W, while my HCG900 is being used for benching at the moment..

Im folding SMP and GPU client now with sig'd CPU speed and GPU at 985mhz ... no issues with the 650W PSU at all... with you having a lower TDP CPU and GPU at stock, I doubt its a PSU issue.


***I definitely agree though-> 6950 will draw much more than a 560 ever would... your looking at over 75-90W just from memory increase alone.. 900mhz core on the 6950, with +20% powertune in CCC will produce around 385-420W load from the GPU. There is a good thread on this topic in the PSU section I believe.. one of Phadra's threads.

I know with that psubyou should have enough power, but maybe its not wattage related. Maybe you have a rail going out. Or maybe a faulty cap. I don't really know. At this point I'm just blindly swinging for the fences. If I wasn't on my mobile, I'd look up from the manufacturer what the power draw is for each card. At this point with all you've done, if the 6950 is higher.... there is your answer. I say that, until you install a new psu and it doesn't fix the problem.

Having messed with, tinkered and found building/maintaining PC's a hobby of mine over the years, I've learned quite a bit. I feel like this may be an issue. I'm going to grab an Antec Earthwatts 650w tonight and see what it does. If worst comes to worst and it doesnt fix it, Ill just return it.

It's not power or your hd. It's a driver "conflict" of some sort. Your mobo and the card don't like eachother. Somethings going to give in. I would make sure the BIOS settings have PCI E selectedfor primary graphics or something like that. Sound card removal might help?

you shouldnt have to remove the sound card.. just make sure the HDMI sound options/drivers for the GPU are disabled

I would say the sound card is the most likely culprit at this point.

Formatting has ruled out a lot of things.

PSU is most likely fine if you are getting normal scores in Heaven Bench but lagging in an old game like Oblivion.

I'll give that a try as well. I believe back when I changed the multiplier on the CPU, I also set the PCI e to be the primary, but I'll double check.

Fantastic idea, there might be a conflict with those drivers and the sound card. Could very well be the case!!

Exactly.. because some games will look for/support your on-board HDMI sound in the GPU.. but windows will point toward the sound card you have installed. Had this exact issue when i first installed my GPU with a full set of drivers. Now I load driver only.. no CCC and no HDMI sound... also- No issues

I have a running list of things to check this evening at 6PM. I'll update my status when I do them!

But by all means, if any of you have any more suggestions, please keep throwing them at me!

Incorrect. The Power consumption is relatively equal between a 6950 and a 560 Ti. The 6950 actually consumes LESS.

Nvidia lowered the consumption compared to the 480 with the 5xx series, but the 560Ti,570, 580, and 590 all SUCK power at a high rate compared to the AMD equivalents.
