Ok this is really odd.. Furmark crashes my Gigabyte GTX 560 (Non-Ti) at stock clocks. - Page 2

Here is a simple test.

Get an MSI Afterburner. Manually set the Fan to 60-70%.

Run the test again. If it crashes, then Temp is not the issue. If it doesnt crashes, then you know your card is overheating.

Don't be using furmark. It could ruin the card. Also Nvidia has current cut off for that program built into their drivers.

You need to read the entire thread.

Ok yesterday I managed to try something different and kinda more stable.

I gave up on furmark since I see it's not simulating real gaming conditions, and I think that's the reason my GPU resets.

I installed Heaven DX11 Bench and on 1080 fullscreen with extreme, aax8 tesselation extreme, anisotropy x16 and run the bench mode several times and managed to get my core clock to 955 with 1.037v and memory 2100 without artifacts and heat reaching maximum 79° at the peak of the bench.

I think it can get some more right?

But, can I consider it as a stable OC? Or do I need to leave my PC and run the normal mode overnight etc?

I gave up on Furmark a while ago as well...it is a stress test from the deepest darkest abyss and is so much above real world applications. I just run the GPU test in OCCT now days.

As for stability testing...I'd just run a stress test like OCCT for 15 minutes or so and then game with it. If you get a freeze or a crash you will know that your OC probably isn't stable and you need to change something and test it again for 15 minutes. I don't see the need to run it for 24 hours to learn that....and you might still crash in a game anyway. If I am OCing a system for some one else I'll run it through the paces, but for a machine in my own house I won't.

Oh thanks!

I'll try that now! What settings do you use for OCCT GPU Test?
post #17 of 17
I typically just do the window at 1024x768 (or whatever the default is...maybe it was 1280x1024?) with the error detection on. The error detection works rather well I think. It will pick up artifacts that you might not have noticed with your eye.
