I tried a number of different drivers and checked that the fans were spinning up. Then, the following morning, I got artifacts on the screen and two yellow bands right down the screen. They appeared in the BIOS and so I guessed it was the card. I pulled it out and burnt my thumb on the the backplate thing on the card, so I know it had fried. I don't get how it could have happened. fans were working properly and I hadn't stressed it or even played a game yet. Is there any BIOS setting that could have overvolted it or set something that would have caused this?
I ran it yesterday on the built in GPU and noticed overclocking options in the BIOS for that but turned them off. I was surprised at how smooth it was.
Today I installed an MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr III OC 2048MB card and that seems to be working fine thumb.gif
I'm still curios as to what could have caused my old card to cook though. It wasn't in the top PCI-E slot as it didn't work in there but airflow wasn't really restricted in the middle slot and there was no significant dust build up. Any ideas? Or maybe it was just it's time to die?

LOL. Anyway, I don't recall seeing any dedicated GPU options in the BIOS for my board. There is a GT overlock feature in the BIOS (That is for Ivy Intel HD graphics 4000 though not a dedicated GPU). To overclock a GPU you would have to downloaded Afterburner and do it in there. I would have checked what voltage and temps the BIOS was reading for the GPU. Anywho, what is done is done. Move forward. thumb.gif

Hehehe - yes, I guess so biggrin.gif LOL!!

It was the GT overclock setting that I disabled yesterday when I ran the onboard graphics but I didn't think to check the BIOS for any settings related to the 4890. I hadn't gotten around to installing afterburner yet but I have it installed now to keep an eye on the new 7850 thumb.gif
I guess I'm superstitious about that going the same way thinking.gif
Yep - onwards and upwards, lol! It's been an expensive week as I only intended to buy a new motherboard and ended up with a new CPU and graphics card too. . . . . I'd best hide the credit card statement from the girlfriend bruce.gif

has anyone figured out how to enable pcie 3.0? I have an i5 3570k and 570 gtx, and according to gpuz, I'm always in pcie 2.0. Am I missing something, or isn't the IB supposed to enable pcie 3.0?

In BIOS:

Click MSI settings---> Advanced---> PCI Subsystem Settings---> PCIE GEN3 ---> ENABLED

That should fix your problem. Also, make sure your card is installed in a 3.0 port. (Almost always top two)

Thanks. Yeah, in the bios the only 2 options are "auto" and "disabled". I have it set to auto. Also the 570 gtx is in the top PCI-E slot....

I have my i5 3570 oced to 4.7 manually, but it wasn't working anyway (pcie 3.0) when I briefly tried the 4.5 template in this thread.
Reference model evga 570 gtx

Not much else to mention unless you want to know my hard drives and usb peripherals...


I'm using the newest 10.6b13 bios.

Do you have the 65 55 or 45 mobo? Im pretty sure the pci e 3.0 setting is the same in all of the BIOS. It comes disabled by default. You have to enable it like i mentioned. Also, make sure you have the latest bios for your mobo, the latest nvidia drivers, and your referenced card is 3.0 compatible. Im on my mobile. Hard to effcently check all that. Ill do some digging when i get home if you haven't figured out by then.

yeah thanks.

Like I said, there's only 2 options in the bios, auto and disabled. I'm also using the newest official drivers on Nvidia's website...

I have the GD65.
