MSI 570 GTX errors in occt

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I went on my spring break and came back to a gimmicky GPU. I have never had problems with it before, so I decided to install the new drivers that came out today. I always perform a clean install, and it has only given me problems once, which turned out to be a corrupt driver download off of nvidia's website. It's got me pretty worried, does anyone know why all of a sudden it is doing this? I have had the card for 6 months without a hitch. I bought it from an OCN member, and performed preliminary tests when I got it. I don't OC, and the previous owner said it had never been oc'd. Mainly because of the 570's VRM's and failures with other people OC'ing them. I don't know what to do, it runs my two screens fine, runs furmark fine, then when I fire up OCCT and test for errors, it is in the thousands in less than a min. I tried dropping the core, shaders and mem down to a lower interval and had the same result.... Is the card fried? Or is there hope. When ever I fire up a graphically intensive game ie: skyrim, BF3, or L.A. Noire it just rapes the screen with artifacts and incomplete renders. I really hope I don't have to drop more money on a new card considering I can't RMA it because of missing serial numbers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Caleb.

I'm not completely sure. All I know is it is a reference MSI 570 SC. Core is at 786mhz, shaders1572, mem at 2100. So that's all I know....

If it is artifacting in the games, i would say bad card.

It is unlike any artifacting I have ever seen.... Colors and things are all wrong and I feel it could be something with the drivers... I don't understand how I could go a week without using it then come back to it and it is just doing this... frown.gif will be me if it is fried... :/

Well, after feeling at wits end with the situation, I decided to take the shroud off the GPU. I was noticing that the temps were 20C higher than they used to be. Immediately upon opening the shroud I could see the heat sink passage to the back of the card, from where the fan pulls was completely blocked by dust. I removed the dust and put the GPU back in my PC and found my temps dropped immediately by 23C. Pretty substantial. On top of that, without installing different drivers than I was getting errors with I decided to try OCCT one more time, before dropping the mad bills on a new card..... Flawless for over an hour with a burn in test temps went from 85C to 62Cmax.... I am assuming I was so close to frying my card at higher temps that it was malfunctioning. So that being said, always suggest checking the heat sink for dust. Needless to say I have ordered dust filters for my whole case to help combat the situation, and I will be more aware of my temps and dust in my GPU. The dust was a direct result of me getting a new case for christmas (HAF-X) with all the airflow and the 140 front to 120 inside pull and feed into the GPU fan with the shroud around it to exhaust any unneeded air out the 200mm side fan. It was feeding high volumes of dust straight into my GPU heat sink. Anyways I was just updating, my card is working flawlessly and it all looks good. Keep it in mind for suggesting to other OCN members as a last ditch effort, I do not spend as much time as I used to on here, so maybe a fellow OCN member can foster this information and deliver it when it is needed.

Thanks for your time
OC on.
