Overclocking help

post #1 of 8

I got à problem while overcloking my cpu

Heree the specs
Msi 970-g46a motherboard
Amd fx-8350 with H40 Liquid cooling
1100w apevia warlock PSU
16gb of kingston 1600Mhz
Evga GTX 660 superclocked 3Gb on SLI
2Tb Seagate Hard Drive

Each time i try to overclock i always got a BSOD
I've removed 1 graphics card and the overclock worked perfectly
The bsod error code with sli gpu is driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

This only appear when the sli is activated

On the bios settings only the mutiplier is raised to 20,5 which is 4.1 Ghz
I've tested this with a fx-4100 cpu and is the same problem.

It's would be appreciated if someone could solve me that problem.

Thanks

This may sound a little silly, but have you verified you are running the most up to date GPU drivers and BIOS revision? Do the cards work when both are installed when NOT in SLI?

Yes i'm running on driver 314.22 the lastes of nvidia. And yes my overclock work when sli is disable ( on nvidia control panel) while both of the card are plugged in. I've also tested: overclocking my cpu, starting up my pc, all went well, while both of my card was installer(with the sli bridge) i activated sli on nvidia panel, and then bsod poped right into my face

Ok. Good info, since it's most likely (almost apparently so) related to the SLI, have you tried a different bridge cable? The only things that come to mind are BIOS update, driver update, SLI cable problem, and card error. So, by process of elimination we already have the updated drivers so I would try BIOS update or SLI cable replacement.(I've seen BIOS updates do a fair amount of things to fix hardware related BSODs and that's why I suggested it).

My bios is updated at the maxed version (There is 2 version up, but those are for windows 8)
I've not tried to change the SLI bridge because i dont have.
I've also tried with older version of Nvidia (310) but there is no sucess always getting that BSOD

Hmmm. You've pretty much done my whole list of go to solutions. SLI bridge was my last real suggestion before testing the cards on another SLI capable motherboard, which often is easier said than done since not all of us have 15 high end systems just sitting around ready as a test bench.
