I need a really good stress test to prove that my card is unstable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr, and after some tests, it looks like my card barely made the bin. +20-30 Mhz on core will crash in Unigen Heaven, so I've been running it at stock. Although GPU core is advertised at 1033, boost @ 1098, in load it can boost as high as 1150. >1170 does not work at all.

However, I've detected some extremely minor flickering and artifacts when I quicksave in Skyrim. I need a really stressful test (hopefully not temp wise) to either have reason to RMA or to be satisfied that it at least works properly at stock.

Wait wait. Am I trying to kill my card now or am I trying to test its stability? D:

if your card is bad it will crash the program , no damage done
if your card is getting to hot simply shot the program down !

but if you do have a bad card this will make it crash almost right away! no damage done just a windows program not responding for the least and a bsod for the worst

if not go on youtube and type in 1080P video scene and it will put the card to work !

Hm, how long max would it take to crash?

I ran it for 13 min, 1920x1200 fullscreen. 74C peak, 49% fan peak (2340 RPM) For all intents its still silent, and a pretty good result I'd say considering my case is 100% passively cooled. All settings stock.


Power draw was 110-111% TDP at all times, peaking at 120%. What does this mean?

Also, clocks stayed at 1033, the stock non boost speed. Can this be a valid reason to RMA? Heh.


Gonna do a quick run now with stock + 20% power limit.

Clock started at 1085, but slowly throttled down to stock based on temps. TDP up to 114-115%. No real other differences. Thought I saw a flicker, but can't be sure I wasn't just blinking.
