My 580 :( killed it self.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
well last year on a 90 deg day and playing bf3 (watercooled) the ram it seems got cooked. so i get gpu corruption after 2 mins of play or some times 2 hours of play.

just wondering if their is anything i can do to keep it from displaying the errors on screen, like loosing up the ram timings on card. I think she is a lost card and needs rma but i dont have the cash to send the card into evga,



just wonder if their is a tool to loosing timing on gpu ram , i got the ram @ 1800 mhz and copre @ stock. the gpu never hit above 65 degs (even in summer).

Edit. this only seems to happen in 3d, i exit out of bf3 and rejoin and errors gone. i did rma the card one time and got it back and dose the same thing. i want to find new bios it mite help.

Uhh, if the same things are happening with BOTH cards. It's probably not a GPU problem, mabye a driver problem, bios or ram problem

this kind of thing happens to me on my new msi 660 running at 40c starts out with a few objects on the screen and then messes up... I quit the server, come back and it doesn't happen until l launch bf3 again.. this doesn't happen on any of my other games and my case is a hafx and my cooling is outstanding. something else must be up.

rolled back to 285.38 drivers.. and only thing i see are yellow roads in bf3 (only game installed only on ssd) . alos it just locks up. the rams @ 1610 and core @ 772 @ 1100mv Just to be safe. @@ stock setting game dose not even launch just black screen then alt ctrl del and shut down the game frown.gif . then yesterday pc flashed like drivers locked up msi afterburner reported nothing then 5 mins latter it said 285 drivers ready to use . I really need cash to send this gpu in to evga as i got a lifetime warranty smile.gif. but with old drivers seems to work longer i think i need a new fw to flash card to frown.gif but i still think the ram is cooked.
