Are you measuring voltage with a DMM or through Afterburner? Because AB doesn't read it accurately. And maybe someone with a DMM can verify the way vDroop behaves on these cards, but if set the voltage to "Force constant voltage" and still crash, then I would think you're crashing simply because the OC is unstable, and not because there's some other problem.

Hey guys .. question my gpuz has the physx unchecked. I driver swept drivers reinstalled still
Happend then I download the physx by itself and it says that because of a network error it cannot install tried it in safe mode with the same results
Tried disabling my firewall and antivirus still it won't install . But when I check in the 3d options to give me the flash screen in games it says physx GPU.. and when installing the drivers it says that a newer or same version of pjysx is installed . Got any suggestions

So when you try to play, say, Arkham City, does it actually tell you PhysX isn't available? Because if it said there's a new or current version already installed, maybe it's a GPU-Z error.

Plus I had some throttling issue today, I was at ~70 fps and it started to lag, then I was stuck at ~20 fps, I had to restart the pc to get my fps back.

Thanx , I read and check nothing. No it says GPU physx so it is working I guess I installed a different gpuz still the same. The real wierd thing is that I can't instal physx

80C? Damn. That's with what kind of voltage/overclock? I can run +100mv on both cards in SLI and its still hard for me to get temps up to 70.

and you throttled all the way down to 20fps? Or was it just the beta showing its performance issues?

Don't worry about flashing, it's easy. And even if something happens, you have the second one to boot from and can reflash the one that messed up. So either way, you'll be fine smile.gif

Really?

Voltage sliders do nothing at all to me?? omg.... did'nt know that....all the reboots from failing overclocks for nothing then... haha

Will try flashing it then.. let's see how far it goes!

Do you think my system is ok for the cards?

Of course i plan to upgrade it, but i'm really waiting for ivy-bridge e!

Thanks so much for the advice

The biggest issue is getting faulty bios for a failed flash. The unlocked 3a bios on the page is solid I used it to flash my 2nd card.

The difference between locked and unlocked is usually right around 100mhz.

Well, what can i say, u all want me to flash it, let's flash it!

Just today, they sent me an e-mail to rate it! So, i was really disappointed with the cards...

I will flash, then i will update my rate, ok? don't worry tongue.gif
