5870 DEAD ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So if i am playing a heavy game like BF3 or using MSI kombustor (rarely when playing fifa)

My PC monitor turns off while playing after 5-6 minutes (i can still hear sound) and after few seconds the PC restarts.
I never had this issue before. The card is not overheating.

Card its a reference sapphire 5870 and it has vapor x bios which is very slight overclock

What i tried:

Drivers latest
reverted back to old drivers

Used my gtx 260 216core and the PC works fine now

Any suggestions?
Is the card dead?


PC specs on my rig build

Have you tried running the card without an OC? Also try taking the clocks below stock a bit and see if it plays.

Also bear in mind, if your rig is overclocked in general, a more powerful card puts greater load on the chipset and hence might make a once stable OC, unstable.

Try increasing the voltage a little bit and see what happens. Could just be slight degradation over time. Could also try lowering the clocks.

I'd try flashing the original reference BIOS too, and do the same as above if that makes no change, then you can isolate the issue.

Any good guide to flash the OEM bios? and which files to use?

Asus BIOS should unlock the card too, so if it's not stable on the BIOS you can overclock/mess with it. Asus is a stock reference BIOS so they are all the same apart from it's unlocked.
