Is my EVGA GTX 580 dying? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok...so I plugged in the EXACT same cable to another DVI port on the 580 and now it runs fine (for now).

Why is one DVI port causing problems and the other isn't? Same card, different port, problem solved (for now).

Is the card still dying and should I still get an RMA? (I'm guessing yes, since all ports should be working fine).

Make a short period of testing with that port. If you don't really need to use both and this one is working just fine, I say there's no need for an RMA.

I don't know what what could have caused this, I'm guessing it's the high temps. This card has run 99.99999% of it's life at stock volts, and even when it was over-volted, it was the tiniest bump and I ran it for less than an hour before going back to stock.
What's everyone else think?

Letting your card hit temps of 90c is what did it. Prolonged temps like that will eventually kill any chip.
You have been here long enough to know cooling cooling cooling is the most important part of having High end PC parts.

90c to anything apart from VRMs are dangerous IMO. Even intel procs, i wouldn't be so sure to let them go near 80C even though they can be like that for 3 years
Let alone laptops, GPUs will eventually suffer something similar to what the original Xbox 360s (The white ones not SLIM!) and PS3s as well because they run hot as hell and eventually over time due to thermal stress a few solder joints break being lead-free and lead-free is very brittle.
This is why if Intel is going BGA on the mainstream/high-end market they are in for a whole lot of trouble if they don't use silver solder between the dies and the IHSs
I definitely DONT want BGA as heat is very stressful on solder joints if the chip is definitely going to run hot (Tiny die and lots of transistors ... Ivy bridge of course, what else?)
Many fermi cards start dying just like that because it runs SO HOT

But also i guess your DVI connector might have a few broken solder joints or physically broken joints on the GPU die

Or, this is the perfect reason for an RMA. One DVI port has failed.
