Is it just still doing it when you exit a game (BF3) or totally at random?

If it's just after gaming, check your load line calibration setting.

With a sudden no load condition, it could be seriously undervolting the cpu causing shutdown.

Try running with llc disabled or on a low setting.

Speak english!! Lol sorry im a lil stumped what you're trying to tell me? Are you talking abt bios? Not just bf3 its doing it randomly which hasn't done that before. What you mean by calibration and disable llc? Can you explain a tad bit clear what specifically you're trying to tell me? Actually i know what you are talking about now. Not sure where i can find it in bios but i'll check later after i grab some grub.

Would running it disabled make a difference?

I've done it to a few different gpu's and also showed it to other who have tried it and for the most part it works fine on most gpus. And I just realized wargasim is kinda right. Your temps are alil on the high side. Sorry about that wargasim I must've been speeding through. My 7970 is at 1200 core 1600 memory and the highest I have ever seen my temps go was 52 degrees. No matter what I do folding 24/7,gaming,benchmarking ect.. I never see anything higher than that. Usually my max under load is about 48-50 And I'm only using a XSPC Raystorm universal gpu block with heatsinks. I had those same temps even when I ran both gpus in crossfire at the same clocks. Hopefully the fullblock I ordered will actually fit with alil modding. thumb.gif

Thanks very much Chino1974 I would much appreciate the registry work arounds thumb.gif

I haven't had much time for testing/gaming between work/wife and child but I have also came to the same conclusion I am going to have to change the air flow direction to exhaust out the top,
I thought intake top front bottom and exhaust side and rear would work out but I am getting too much heat build up and dust comes secondary to heat. (thought slight pressurised case would work and mesh would let out more heat) Also my bottom gpu vrms are topping out at 85degrees top is 55ish so lookind at adding another fan to control that as I thought the factory mem/vrm heat sink would be ok as it is mad.gif
Also the other reason for the air configeration is the heat travelling up along underneath the table onto me on a hot day wasn't pleasent as we have no aircon but nothing ventured is nothing gained will have to work on shroud to deflect heat.
This is only a temp set up probably 6 months till I can get my hands on one of these

I want to wait till the inital launch premium price has dropped and thats why I went raystorm blocks looks like they will fit on the titan as 45x45mm gpu die size.

Good luck with the 7970 waterblock mod thumb.gif I would have liked to been able to find some full cover for mine but such old cards and no where near reference design, I didn't want to waste money on a 6 month venture I did think about 7970 sli but I only had the budget of water or cards so knowing something was due from amd or nvidia I choose water.
but with the new drivers for amd I was extremely tempted biggrin.gif

If it's doing it randomly, then it's not load line calibration.

LLC is a bios setting that helps to boost Vcore when under heavy load to counter the effect of voltage drop during high current use, (gaming).

Some mobos implimented it less than ideally, such that when you stopped a game, it lowered the Vcore too much and you'd experience crashes.


Assuming for the moment that your hardware is good, your issue sounds more like one of two possibilities; either an intermittant "Turn on signal" connection issue which could have several causes, or a momentary short that causes the PSU to shut down for self protection.

You might try manually wiggling the green wire in the 24 pin connector and the 24 pin connector in general.

Could be the wire itself, or the connector on the mobo.

If that green wire looses its connection to ground, the psu turns off.



Shorts are harder to find, and take more patience;

The best way, and really the only way, is to take the mobo out of the case and put it on a table, putting the box it came in under it is pretty standard "test" proceedure.

Then hook up the PSU and gpu if you don't have onboard, and 1 stick of ram to start..

It's not uncommon to find that you've dropped a screw or something behind the mobo, or a standoff in the wrong hole, or pinched a wire.

You just have to keep eliminating possibilities.

Man serious take the bios and computer issues to aanother part of the forums, I want to read and see some more pics and stuff from 820 users, this is not support for motherboards etc... damit LOL

Darlene thanks for the tip i will keep that in mind but i also went ahead and got ivy bridge anyways cuz it was about time to upgrade anyways lol. Doubt its the psu cuz it's very brand new. Like a few days old.
