Did I ruin my card?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I got a 7870 today and I have never had an msi product so when I installed afterburner I turned the clock speeds all the way to max. After that I tried launching BF4 and I got a blue screen, I later found out that I shouldn't have turned the clock all the way up. It works fine in the computer still but the HDMI doesn't detect anything, did I ruin it somehow by messing with the clock, or do you think it might have been bad from the start? I'll be exchanging it anyways but I just wanted to know if it was my wrong doing?

Sounds like the card was bad, or something else is bad in your system. How much higher was the clock speed?

Why would you just turn the clocks up? Anyways...

Try reinstalling drivers on it and uninstall afterburner for now

Try each of them by themselves and see what happens. I'm sure they can't both be bad. What PSU are you running?
