Hmm very strange....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I primed my comp today for 12 hours (at work all day) on the setting "both" so the comp got an all around workout. However when I got home I tried to benchmark with 3dmark and about halfway thru it errored the program and closed it. Well I uninstalled it and installed aquamark it did the same thing expect I got a screenshot this time:


I am thinking of raising the CPU volts to 1.4 vs its 1.37 now? I mean that long of a prime is considered rock solid as far as I know. Also I touched my ram and yes its a bit warm but I can keep my hand on it with no issue. There is plenty of cool air running over it (hsf and 25cm fan).

Any thoughts?

Aquamark is known to need a patch in many cases.... I'll dig it up for you

EDIT: Aquamark patch: http://www.overclock.net/970289-post5.html

Try 3dmark again? Maybe too picky with your OC?

Yes it has worked in the past. I did a little investigating with the PC. As I type this my top GPU's fan is not spinning!? I am gonna do a temp hook up to the FDD slot above it (for xfire to add more power) until my custom cable comes I guess. Will see what that does.

Well the fan still isnt going, so I sent an email to Sapphire to RMA this bad boy. This seems to clearly be my problem as the card gets extremely hot. So my guess is halfway thru a benchmark it reaches its threshold.

All this time and its only my first RMA lol.

Was definatly the card now as Aquamark finished with only one card. Is it odd my CPU beat out my GPU lol.
