wide black bar screen tearing and sound glitch would like some input

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey guys i have been trying to use my gts450 because i thought it was dieing but i reapplied thermal paste and put it back in my computer. while in game i was having weird big black bars and screen glitching like crazy so i turned of vsync and lowered the graphics a bit and that seemed to help some. but then i restored my cpu's setting back too normal and then overclocked up to 4.0 with 1.425vcore and seems to be working just fine so does that mean my card is not dieing and my cpu was just really unstable?

not familiar with the platform but it sounds liek the chipset was what was unstable. What sort of Temps did the card have when glitching out?

either the card was overheating or the chipset sounds likely cause.

Moving forward when ever you have graphical issues open the case and use a small room fan to Force air to the GPU , PCB, Chipset and mobo, angle so the air hit teh chipset and sweeps front to back to keep airflow normal.

this lets you rule heat out as an issue at the very least and is pretty much the first thing anyone should do when experiencing Graphical issues.

Those are all Max temps but Im guessing you're correct about the chipset being the problem because it was tweaked before and I'm not having issues now so I'm hoping that was the problem.
