upgrade to Z77 motherboard + ivybridge is causing 7870 CFX crashes/bsods...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I posted this in the Intel forum but didn't get any attention. Maybe someone in this section has some idea of what could be causing this. I'll copy and paste what I've learned so far, please forgive the length.

I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU from my phenom II X4 945 to an IvyBridge based system. Now either my system hard locks and loses display, or shuts down, or just spits out the following blue screen:

I even re-installed windows for the new system, I also have tried 12.3 drivers and 12.4 drivers. If I disable CFX then I can run anything 3d related, otherwise the above problems.

i5 3570k (at stock)
AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 (using latest drivers/bios)

Anybody have any ideas?

Also, the system is stable as I left it overnight folding and as previously said, I can bench without a problem with CFX disabled. Currently using latest official 12.4 drivers.

This is what I've troubleshot so far:

Edit: I verified everything was properly seated and checked all the power connectors, also tried a second CF bridge. Sometimes even GPU-Z will hang the system and BSOD it.

Not sure what is going on, possible conflict with this motherboard/chipset and cfx with these 7870 cfx cards or perhaps there is some setting in the BIOS i need to change.

I also tried installing each of them on their own in both slots and they both run fine. Me thinks it's some sort of issue with this brand spanking new Z77 chipset based motherboard.

On a positive side, my system is purring away @ 4.4ghz with 1.20v and 67C max temp while folding@home

For the moment I'm just running 1 card as cfx is BSOD'ng me or crashing me.

Thanks for any help! redface.gif


already contacted Asrock tech support, awaiting their response.

Edit: There has been a revelation, it appears to be something software based with DirectX being the main issue, I'll copy and paste my findings from another forum:
Quote:
Thanks for the suggestions and assistance. I tried what you suggested and instant BSOD when trying to run 3dmark 11, also gpu-z just hangs and crashes with a popup.

Now as you hinted, it appears to be something DirectX as I just ran the MSI Kombuster app that comes with the latest MSI Afterburner and it renders in OpenGL and it completed without a problem. Also the game Rage worked for me, and it uses OpenGL. MSI Kombuster even spit out this score for me:

SCORE: 27126 points, Avg FPS: 452 (60000 ms)

Now what else can I test. I can upload the new crash dump or do you want me to try a few more apps. I have 3dmark vantage installed as well as Unigine Heaven 3.0

Edit: confirmed, just did a full run of Heaven 3.0 but in OpenGL mode and it completed (albeit choppy and slow since it doesn't have an optimized AP for the OpenGL version of Heaven) and both cards were being stressed properly.

Edit 2: Ok, more info. I was able to complete runs in Heaven 3.0 in OpenGL mode, DX9 mode and DX10 mode. DX11 BSOD's. Also tried 3dmark Vantage which is DX10 I believe and it also BSOD. Here are the 3 BSOD's from 3dmark 11, Heaven 3.0 DX11, and 3dmark Vantage.


So it's some problem with maybe cfx optimizations or something with dx11 or I don't know. frown.gif

Hmmm its clearly a problem only when you use CF, right?? So it's software's problem, in this case driver catalyst, and not your hardwares smile.gif I guess so... Btw have you try 12.5beta, yet??

I hope it has been fixed and doesn't re-occur. I reinstalled Windows from a fresh format and so far the only glitch I've had was GPU-Z freezing my computer. I am currently on the 12.3 drivers with the 12.3 cap, and have tested a bunch of 3d benches and so far haven't crashed. I am thinking it was some software glitch from when I just installed Windows over my current Windows install. I can only hope.

And no, now that my system is relatively stable, I don't plan to muck it up with beta drivers. I will try the official 12.5's once they come out and pray to the AMD gods that my CFX IB system remains stable. tongue.gif

Hmm crashing only with GPU-Z now?? But you have no problem with benchmarks and games, right? If that so then I guess you are fine for now smile.gif I bet its Catalyst software problem with CF cards and GPU-Z.
Yup I think you better wait for next WHQL Catalyst.
Sorry Swiftdeathz I cannot help you much about this, I never had CF configuration tongue.gif but I think you may ask to Navit since he also use CF with 7870's.
