306.97 Articfacting & Crashing While Idle

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Card is a GTX 560 TI and this has been happening for a week or so.

Its never crashes while gaming, only when under little to no load. Surfing the web, listening to music, ect...

All of a sudden small artifacts will appear, and the driver crashes.

My card is overclocked to 950 Core Clock and 2100 Memory @ 1075 volts. The overclock is stable while stress testing in Heaven and EVGA OC Scanner, and has never crashed on me while gaming.

The only thing I can think of is that the card is cutting back its voltage too low while idle (950 v)? But I'm not sure why all of a sudden this would be an issue, it has been doing that since I got the card and like I said, this just started recently.

Have you bios modded this card?

My faulty GTX670 has the HDMI flickering and DVI fuzzing but only when you bring the computer back from sleep mode. And its not a driver problem. Maybe try different drivers, but then also maybe try to see if the GPU acts differently after a bootup/sleep/hybernate if enabled...

It's a weird issue and you would never know my card is faulty unless you sleep the computer, then when you bring it back, its unusable..

No bios modding at all, and I never put my PC to sleep or Hibernate....

Maybe I should just try a driver rollback
