EVGA GTX 570 HD trying to over clock. - Page 2

post #11 of 27
since you had it for a year, and you recently learned you can OC it, theres not much you can do. I would think you probably got that card new but was faulty and you never realized it. But now you know. When you get a new GPU you chould always burn it in default settings then benchmark, then OC to your settings. If you knew about MSI afterburner and such early on, you probably could have replaced it. Theres not much else you can do if nothing is wrong with it. I just assume you got a faulty one and yeah it sucks. You might just have to buy a new GPU. I would just play around with the current one and learn how to OC and get familiar with the program so you dont damage your new GPU. as far as i can tell, your best bet is to get a new one if your having that much trouble. Your temp is very high and thats dangerous.

Check out this thread, give you some troubleshooting options that may help you to save $$$ and not buy a new GPU. hope it helps man.

i know its for the 580 but the concept should be the same

So i decided to run BF3, overclock it to 850MHz, stock memory, and 1.088Mv.

I ran BF3 at ULTRA settings 1920x1200. NO THROTTLE.

runs stable in BF3, But it throttles historically in Furmark, and Precision testing.

What the hell.


Uploading screen shots.

this is what i learned, Furmark throttles nvidia 500 series to not damage them. Run Heaven or 3dmark11 instead OF* furmark. you should see results and no throttling.

+1 rep if this helped biggrin.gif

is that your voltage you are using for it to be stable? i did 850 and i used around 1025, 1088 imo is too much

i used 1088 because that's what i've seen on multiple forums as being "enough".

I just tried a benchmark MSI kombuster, I like this better than the others. It went through normally at 1026mv

New discovery.


As it turns out. the Card is NOT throttling in games, But just in EVGA's scanner and Furmark. 3dMark11 and MSI Kombuster DO NOT throttle. so i can actually get results.


I guess i can now test stable overclock settings for games.


Need to watch temps.

Will update as I experiment with my settings.

kombuster is nice but doesn't benchmark fully, i recommend doing heaven benchmark along with kombuster

and yeah, your TEMP will be your biggest worry.

so i started running BF3 on Ultra, was running at 69-71C so i wanted to try ramping up the overlock from 850 to 875 MHz. BF3 started, running fine, crashed to desktop with white screen in the app. Drivers "revovered from failure" and my GPU was back to being trottled, but all the way back to a mere 50 MHz not wanting to opened any benchmarking or 3d application.
