MSI gtx 660 ti problem - Please help

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, this is the problem that I've been having :

I got my new card for a week. I built a new pc from the ground up and everything was great.But I wanted to get a better cooler for my 3570K so I could also overclock
So I get the cooler, but in order to do it I got the RAM and my GPU off.
I got the cooler in but when I assembled the pc again, I put the RAM on A2-B2 slots (Asrock Extreme 4) so they wouldn't touch the cooler's fan
Then I place the gpu down very carefully, lock it up and put the 2 6-pin connectors in.
Then I boot the system, and open up intel burn test and real temp. The temperatures went down about 28 degrees
Then I open up gpu-z and run heaven benchmark and 3d mark 11 to check stability between cpu-gpu
I notice that the performance is really poor. So I check gpu-z and the texture fill-rate is at 24.5 GB/S while it was 145 before. Although the memory is normal at 144.2 GB/S
So, I run heaven benchmark, 3d mark 11 and A v P benchmark and the gpu passes through all of them. In addition on the Windows 7 Index it told me that a system refresh should be done. So I do it and suddenly it goes from 7.9 to 5.9 for the gpu
I am really freaked out. I will RMA it tomorrow or in 2 days if I don't find a fix

Please if you know anything, help me

P.S I have in fact overclocked this card before,although nothing extreme, +12/+25 Vcore, +30 core clock, +300 memory clock.
P.S 2 : I am not sure about the gpu-z thing but it is stuck in my head that the GB/s was way higher :/

I am sorry the texture fillrate, it is 114.5 and the pixel fillrate is 24.5, although it seems like everyone is on the same side with me, so I was wrong on that.
Although, the performance on all benchmarks is really bad

3DMARK 11: GPU Score : 6670
Heaven Benchmark : 37.7 FPS

Is the GPU in the same PCI-E slot as before ?

Yes

don't bother, it somehow just fixed it self...

Oh dammn, it didn't fix itself
After I restarted, WIE said that there was new hardware detected and did the same dammn thing. Now it's 5.9 on WIE for the gpu and I am getting the same performance as described...
Anyone knows how to fix this or something?

Could it be something from windows?

I would remove all your GPU drivers and do a fresh install and see what happens. Did you also Reset CMOS ? I would also do that.

I did what you said and in addition I updated my BIOS
WEI gave the normal 7.9 rating, although the poor performance is still there...

How many PCI-E Power connectors do you have ? If you have 4 x 6pin, you may wish to try a different pair in your card to make sure it is not a PSU/Cable issue. Bad performance for a GPU is either attributed to Bad drivers OR a lack of power to the card.  Alternatively you could install a fresh Windows on a spare drive and see if the performance is still lacking, if not then you KNOW its a software issue.

Nah, my psu is running incredibly good (checked other 6-pins)
The only way to resolve the problem is by reinstalling the driver 310.90 even if it is already installed
Then it is running perfectly until reboot
Any thoughts? I tend to think that it is a windows error or something :/ smile.gif

In that case it may be likely that it is a software/OS issue and something is changed upon reboot. Only way I can think of removing Hardware or Software as a factor is to do a fresh install of windows and drivers. If the problem persists then it is likely a hardware issue. If it does not, you know there is something up with your current OS.
