Problems with Asus 7970

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, I've been have problems with this card for the past few days.

A few days ago, it started crashing, the display driver would crash, and it would crash to a screen of colored lines during idle, so I figured the card was toast.

It was under water, so I took it out of the loop, put the ref cooler back on, and tested it in my spare PC, and it worked fine, at idle and running cgminer.

My spare GPU runs in my main rig fine, but the 7970 wont. So I tried a spare PSU, gtx 560 runs fine and 7970 doesn't, tried both PCI-E lanes, GTX 560 works and 7970 doesn't.

And yet, the 7970 runs dandy in the spare rig. So all I that is left, is the motherboard, the memory and the processor. But then if it was any of that, I'd think the GTX 560 wouldn't work either?



Any ideas what's going on here?

So I tried the 7970 back in my spare rig (kraken in my sig) and it did what it was doin in my main rig, so I think it's definitely the 7970
