How do I stress my 560 Ti?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm buying a refurb 560 Ti for $184 and I was wondering if I should stress it for a few days to make sure if its going to die, its going to die within my 90 day warranty tongue.gif How should I go about doing this?

run furmark on it whenever you aren't using it.

Best way to stress a 500 series card is actually with folding, check out the guide linked in my sig under FOLDING. Run that with stock clocks for as long as possible and if it fails then it's unstable.

F@H is also a great way to stress it and is a great cause

If you not trying to seek a stable overclock, then yeah, Furmark for mega heat

If you want to try for a stable OC, OCCT, Heaven and 3dmark11

or

You could fold but make sure your clocks are stable first smile.gif

I have very cheap hydroelectric power here, thinking of folding@home.

Furmark is actually not a useful test on the cast majority of the 500 series cards (basically only on the GF110 Asus DCII cards is it useful) because the cards OCP will throttle the clocks down to 405Mhz to stay within the power limit. "Stress testing" your card at 405MHz is kinda pointless when nothing runs at only 405MHz.

EDIT: If you have cheap power then you should be folding all the time. Perfect time to start to as the biggest folding competition of the year is about to start, the Chimp Challenge. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions regarding folding. smile.gif

@ Juano

I thought that only applied to the GTX 580 and 590s?

I say this because OCCT and Furmark did well on my 560 Ti but not at all on my GTX 580.

Every 500 series that I'm aware of. If you still have a 560ti you can confirm by running furmark or Kombustor or something and watch the frame rates, within about 5 minutes they will plummet when the clock drops. You see plenty of threads that say "My card was doing fine in Furmark but then the frame rate cut in half, does this mean blah blah blah?"

Oh, okay. I did get mine when they first came out, so its a very early model. Maybe the design was changed with later models to include the newer power limiting circuity. It would make sense.

When i got the 580 I had to rethink my entire OC stability testing regime due to FM / OCCT now not working on them.
