My card keeps crashing, and when I check the graph in precision x, I see a HUGE spike in power target...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can someone please help me out I'm trying to get Skyrim running but my card keeps crashing.

I think it is something to do with my power target but now I think I know what is wrong:

my power target spikes to as high as 5400...

Of course, when it gets to that point my card crashes.

When I set power target to 100% instead of 125% (which kept spiking), I was able to get through Heaven 4.0 without issues.

I saw that my power draw (which I'm assuming is power target???) was between 85-95...

Is my card faulty? I have a galaxy 670.

the power target should only be adjusted when overclocking the gpu

if you increase voltage your power target in turn will need to be increased but a 670 should need minimal increase when increasing the volts I would think
