Msi 7950 driver crashing at 50c

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just attached an antec kulher 620 with a bracket to my 7950 and it is fine under 50c but if it hits 50c it crashes in anything it is do, furmark/kombuster

I assume it is spazzing out because there is nothing plugged into its fan header, thus thinking it is not getting cooled, how do I rectify this.

maybe find a way to plug the fan (s) of the stock cooler making sure that the cooler will not hit other components, then test. i heard of this happening before here but i can't remember how the op solved it.

edit: use HwIfo64 to check the temps. make sure the core and the vrms stay below 70C at stock. ypur core is good at 50C (if it is indeed 50).

i plugged in the twin frozr cooler and it still crashed at 50c and the vrm temp was actually cooler than the core.

I took off the 620, I am unsure as to what the problem is because even the thermal compound was well spread on the gpu and both sides of the copper shim with no real overhang/overuse. I may try again but the 9XXX are coming soon so it may be wasted as i intend to upgrade.

for clarification with the tf3 cooler physically back on no crashing.

if you ever use the 620 for a gpu again make sure to insulate everything really good and not over tighten the screws (if you used screws). i've seen a mod that just used zip ties. so, it was definitely the cooler doing it. yah, just wait for the 9XXX.

not keen on zip ties on my gpu,

also i didn't think i tightened the screws too much.

if a bracket arrived for the 9950/9970 i may try it then because just want a quiet gaming pc under full load.

(not keen on the accelero for the 7950/7970)
