Red screen and freezing

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi there everyone, i need some help before my brain gets in a twist. I purchased a Msi Gtx 680 Lightning about a week back and i cannot seem to overclock this card in normal and LN2 mode. When i adjust settings on MSI Afterburner as seen on screenshots posted on different web sites and whwn i play a game the system just freezes or goes to red screen. Can some one out there please help me. My system is as follows: I7 990X 4.8Ghz - 500Gb WD/HD - 24Gb Corsair Vengence DDR3 - Aerocool 1000 Watt PSU - Msi Gtx 680 Lightning.

You're overclocking too high. Try going up from the stock clocks in 5-10mhz steps and then test using Furmark.

Ok will do but i hope nothing is wrong with the card itself, wonder how those guys overclock the card.

All cards overclock differently. You need to move up gradually and test, that's the only way to get good results.

I know I have had some red screens myself and they seem to come randomly. I backed off my Overclock by 25 on the core and haven't had a red screen since. But with that said there are tons of thread about the red screen.

Problem with that is with these new card there is a very wide range of results. Some people can hit 1300+ on the core and some can only get 1200.
Pretty good little guide.

Hi thanks i watched the youtube thread u posted, think somethng is wrong with the card itself. My default Clock Speed is 1111Mhz, Memory Clock is1502Mhz and Boost Clock is1176Mhz. The highest i can get to overclock is Clock Speed 1141Mhz, Memory Clock 1522Mhz and Boost Clock goes to 1206Mhz. To me those figures just dont do it. My Bandwith is 194.8GB/s from 192.00GB/s. That aint much, what's your opinion and what should i do?

Can you bump the Vcore on the 680, it might have a low stock Vcore which might be holding you back.

Worst case it's just not a good overclocker.

Hi there yes i tried different settings on the V-Core taken from Google and Youtube posts and nothng seems to work. If i push it any further than the settings i posted i either get a red screen or the system just holts and i have to manually restart. If i return this card i have to wait like a month to get a new one and that sucks.
