What kind of a crash is it? Does it exit and go to desktop? Does it freeze the whole system? Does the screen go blank? Any error messages?

Id suggest you run on-screen display ( msi AB has it) and keep and eye on temps, voltage, etc etc while the heaven is running,

Unistalling and reinstalling drivers, heaven, dx11 is also a good thing to try.

Are you overclocking your cpu by any chance? If so, run everything stock and try the bench again

I had to use a USB to boot to DOS and install the "new" unlocked BIOS. Is there something wrong with this "new" unlocked BIOS? Why did the OP tell to use the "old" but not "new" one?

So I got it installed, things seem ok, but the Core Voltage (mV) still only can hit 100 max. How do I increase it to 150 and more? I tried Art Money on AB 2.2.3, it worked, but not on the new AB 2.3.1.

I tried to push the Core Clock to 94, and Memory Clock to 147, things seem to run stably, but if I push it any higher, it crashes, I guess because of the lack of Core Voltage.

Is this a very low score? Or is it normal?

Cant comment about the artmoney hack, but your score is resonable. I get in the low 12s for the graphics score, but mine is clocked 50 higher than yours.

for me it goes blank. I can press the windows button and the menu will pop up. But I can't do anything else besides log off or shutdown/restart

already tried installing and reinstalling. didn't work.

At stock its still pretty iffy if it can complete the bench test. AT my OC setting (stock voltage, 104 core n 500 core) it does the blank screen thing.

Using the F8 ln2 bios? That one does go blank screen on a crash & needs to restart the machine to get the desktop back, the 3A bios can recover from a crash so restarting isn't as necessary.

Edit: Random thought. I can Run SLI with both crads over the weekend and see if I like the performance boost... Hmm

How long have your had your cards?

I see. I just got ny card too and ive been reading this thread over the past few days. There have been a few issues like yours. Does it do it in both bios? If your temps are in check and you have updated to the latests drivers, then im inclined to says it is a dud like another poster said. Try this though, downclockbthe cards core by 100 or so and run the test. If it passes then its probably a badly binned chip that shouldnt have passed inspection.

@FtW 420 I'm using 3A. On Heaven 3.0 it did recover. Lower right popup said something about Nvidia drivers not responding. With 4.0 its just blank

@Chillie Got it Jan 24. Today was my last day to return to amazon without restocking fees. Oh I should say I only have ONE card

@uci2ci I'll try heaven 4.0 and downclock it like you said. Should I leave everything else stock? Give me 45mins I gotta do some IRL stuff


Edit. Ran it at -100core since posting this message. Everything else is stock. Didn't crash tand temp is at 55-56c.

Only the locked bios gives me problems on all the factory settings. The stock bios runs games ok but not at the same quality as my twin frozr II 680. Also the stock bios cannot complete a benchmark unless it is valley. The LN2 locked bios that i have works pretty well w/ no issues with crashing unless im overclocking.

Anyone know why I'm stuck at full boost speed and Afterburner isn't showing GPU usage? I can set an offset on the core, and the clock immediately jumps to the boost speed with nothing open! I'm idling at 1300mhz right now. And usage stays at 0% even when I have a game or bench running. Seems to run fine. But I can't see usage, and I idle at full boost speed, not even just the base clock speed.
