GTX 560 Ti 448 core OC Club - Page 249

post #2481 of 2748
Uh oh...my card mightve just died.

Bought the Gigabyte 560ti 448 two weeks ago, had it running at 875 core clock 1.050v through afterburner for the whole time. Today though I decided to crank it up, found my limit at 1.1v and 930 core, ran furmark, 3dmark11 and heaven, all seemed good. Played Skyrim for about 30 minutes when the screen went black. Reset the computer, no display, so I plugged the DVI to mobo. Went to bios to check, my card isn't detected. Ran driver sweeper, boot into windows checked device manager, no good. Moved my card over into the next slot, still no good. My psu is 750w silencer mk2, so I don't think it's a problem on that end.

Any ideas before I RMA?

RMA it after you have made sure to go into AB and reset all of the settings for the GPU to default.

Time for rma as selluminis said. I would recommend not to use Furmark in the future any more. Its been noted its too hard on the gpu. A lot of reviewers and testers are no longer using it as it has the potential to damage your gpu. Use 3dmarks, heaven, stone giant, etc. Also, MSI Kombuster seems to be the same thing so I wouldn't touch that at all.

For my testing, I use 3dmarks11 and just run the graphics test. Its faster than running the whole thing and if it passes, its stable and good. I also use the Metro 2033 benchmark.

Well my situation just got a bit more complicated.

I went to the local NCIX store where I bought the card from to get a replacement, and they put the card in their rig. And you guessed it, worked like a charm. He ran furmark for 30 mins, not even a single artifact. So I went home and dug out my dusty 8600gt to test, and again couldn't detect it. I think I ruled out the gpu and the psu now (since the 8600 doesn't require the extra 6pins), and its looking like its the mobo (Asrock z77 extreme4) problem.

I'm still under warranty for 1 more week, should I cough up the $35 and let them fix it?

clear your cmos if you haven't done so. sounds like your pcie lanes aren't working. I would go wtih asrock support. Since its a new design, they'll probably just replace it with a new one. At worst, you'll pay $10 to ship it to them.

Yup this did the trick. Like usual the solution is one of the most obvious and I missed it *smack face*.

+1 rep to both of you for the help. Any ideas how to avoid having to do this in the future though? Or was it just my OC was going into really unsafe territory?

The 560 448 is not a hardcore gpu to really render your mb dead. I would just baby it until you get back to the settings when this happen. if it happens again, I would rma your mb with asrock. I ran four oc'd to max 480s on their x79 pro, so they make some great stuff.



edit: Also, disabled the onboard graphics. I was recommended this when oc'ing on my EVGA Z77. If you need to use it, just clear your cmos again.

HAHA. That is awesome that clearing the cmos did it. I too say +1....
