Can my 470 really be degraded that much?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have been having troubles with my comp and I am thinking its my G-card. I have a 470 that has been running at between 850 and 900 core on 1.15v for the last year and a bit pretty much constantly and I havn't had problems till now. I had bsod problems that I narrowed down to what I thought was ram so i got some new stuff and did a complete re build to clean everything and now although my bsoding is gone my fps is annoying me mainly in LOL. I get between 30 and 50 on max but on stock i normally got a solid 80+ no problem and if I even try 850 at 1.15 my comp crashes after 5 mins. Is it possible that my card has degraded to the point of crap or am i missing something here?

What are program are you using to stress test your card?

Mmm. Fermi cards won't usually last that long with clocks like that. Thats the 4xx series btw. I had a 470 and i had it running at 800 core 24/7 for about a year and it died.

bugger yea im thinking thats whats happened it went hard while it did 900 core i might have to sell my loop and card off and get a new 1 if it turns out to be stuffed

Given that stock clocks were ~600mhz and you overclocked it to 850-900, I would assume the card would degrade quickly.

Not true, it does not downclock the 400 series.

I believe the card was water-cooled, but still.

OP I wouldn't be surprised if your card did degrade, but I wouldn't have expected it to degrade to the point of being useless now. What clocks will it hold stably now? Try 800MHz and see how it does there and what voltage it requires there. If it degraded from 900 to 800 then that's something I could understand, but 900 to 600 is not something that I would've expected at only 1.15v given adequate cooling.
