I have experience with OCing, so it's not first time I'm doing this. Really don't know whats the deal here.
Also, I tried both BIOS 1 & 2.

Was same here, did 4 win-reinstalls, tried everything, talking 60+hours testing... As soom as i did a OC it crashed, got a "video hardware error" in the reability logs...

Then suddenly the oc worked, have no idea what did that...lol

Can someone tell me the sollution for my problem. I had this problem since forever i think but now it started do bother me. I have one screen pluged in HDMI and other DVI. I have default power saving settings in win7.
The problem is when i don't use my computer for a longer period of time, firstly it turns off the screens and then eventually it shuts down(can be started with simple mouse click) I think it goes to sleep. So what is the fix for that?
I have to point out that my screens have to turn off when not in use.

I know that this has been answered before but i just dont have time to go through the whole topic...

Just turn off sleep mode in power options (control panel) ?

Also Metro 2033 seems to also pose a problem as well. SV Thomas is getting alot of microstutter smh.
And M3t4lh34d posted this
I'm glad I Held onto my 3 7970s. I just popped the 3 680s I got in today ahead of time before the 4th arrived, and I'm already having problems. Gameplay is fine, and the 3 680s perform nearly IDENTICAL to my 3 7970s. Even the 3dmark11 score (when the 680s would make it through the run) were only 400 points apart on my 3930k @ 4.7ghz.
The main problem I'm having is during 3dmark11 runs or even during BF3 (which never happened EVER with my 7970s), the PC will completely lose power. No BSOD. Nothing. Just poof, it's off. I'm running a 1200W PSU and there's NO way it's not enough power for the 680s when my 3 7970s ran just fine OC'd.
What I'm wondering is, have any of you running Tri-SLI setups or any of you with 680s for that matter been having this issue? Is it perhaps a driver issue?
I'm contemplating cancelling the 4th 680 and grabbing a cheap 7970 for Quadfire instead.
Let me know if any of you have experienced this problem.
I'm running the latest Nvidia driver as of today on their site btw.
Both camps will have problems with hardware and software you will still have to do workarounds and adjust settings and try all sorts of installs for drivers.

Just wanne add to the discussion here.
I have had like 3 or 4 PC's before this one, having nvidia based GPU's aswell as AMD's.
My feeling is that I got the most satisfying gaming experience with my AMD based GPU's.
For instance my last PC had a 9800gtx+ with a factory overclock and I felt that I always had some artifacts in games.
After some time I figured out that the standard overclock on the card was causing the artifacts... Go figure !
If I now see what my AMD is capable of... Quite the difference.
And by the way nvidia drivers are not that great either. Back in the day when I was playing Fifa alot on the PC I would constantly have lock-ups with that game.
I could not figure it out and decided to bring the PC back to the shop I bought it.
They fixed it by installing the drivers that went with the card... Those drivers were like 18 months old...
And not really GPU related but you should take a look at NFORCE drivers for your sata chipset on nvidia based motherboards... The internet is full of problems with those that were causing lockups for unexplainable reasons (happened to me also, had to switch from 2 hard disks to 1 to solve it).

Remember one important saying : "the grass is always more green on the other side" wink.gif

Generally 80 degrees is a good maximum, but my feeling is that these cards like it a little lower not to cause artifacts. I would keep it below 75 degrees at all times, preferably 70 degrees thumb.gif

Temporary fix would be to disable Sleep/Hibernate in Windows Power Oprtions.

 

Permanent fix; contact the motherboard manufacturer with your specific configurations (RAID, SSD, HDD, RAM, Sound device, NIC, etc). They should give you an edited BIOS update to fix it.
