OCCT GPU: When the "Error check" function is selected, the "donut" is not moving.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I launch the GPU benchmark of OCCT with any settings, all work fine and I don't see any artifacts (the temperature goes from 45C to 60C, which is normal). But when I select "Error check", the benchmark can run but nothing is moving. The first time I tried this setting, I got like 35000 errors, and now, I have no errors but the ring is still not moving.

I have a 4870 from Asus and I run it at stock speed (I never overclocked it) with the stock cooler.

Any thought? Thanks.

My rig:

MB: Asus P7P55D
CPU: i7 860 in turbo mode (3,3 ghz).
GPU: Asus EAH4870
RAM: Kingston ValueRAM 4GB DDR3 1333


P.S. I have done several tests for the CPU and the RAM and both are working perfectly.

The ring is not supposed to move.

Ok but why is it moving when "Error check" is not selected?

It doesn't move in error checking mode because it compares each frame to the previous one, and looks for differences (errors) between them.

It moves when it's not selected because it can. Both tests use the same geometry and shaders, the error checking mode just checks for errors and log them.

Ok thanks a lot!

Hi my question is sort of related to this post, when I start a GPU test I don't get the ring to show up on my screen, I am assuming it is supposed to be something that looks similar to FurMark's donut. I have never used this software before but I wanted to try it out for the error check as I didn't find any other programs like this one and I am new into overclocking so want to make sure everything is stable. Thanks
