Known issue with Valley stress test?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any known problems with Unigine Valley and Nvidia hardware/drivers? I got a 780 Ti Classy that is crashing Valley on stock clocks and voltages. This is a card that has passed Firestrike benches over 1450Mhz before, so I'm in shock that it's crashing at the stock 1150Mhz boost clock. It usually takes several loops before a crash, but sometimes it happens before 1 full loop has finished. It's watercooled with constant sub-50 temps so heat is not a problem. Never had a problem in any games at 1306Mhz/1.4v/571khz but I've never played for longer than 1 continuous hour since installing the card so that's obviously not a stability guarantee. Wondering if it's a problem with Valley+Nvidia, or if my chip has just degraded. Thoughts?

That's very unusual as Valley is not as tough of a benchmark than Heaven.

I'd try running a couple other benches and if it passes, perhaps Valley got corrupted somehow.

So you're saying Heaven is actually a tougher stress-test than Valley? Right now I'm running Heaven, it's been about 5 loops and no artifacts or crashes at 1306Mhz. it must just be Valley because I've also never had any problems during hour-long gaming sessions of BF4 and Crysis 3 at 1306Mhz.

Any other benchmarks you'd suggest? I've just always used Valley, Heaven, and games. I prefer not to stare at a screen for 10 minutes just scanning for artifacts, I'd love a test that will just crash if there's any instability, and I wont run power-virus benchmarks like Furmark.

Same thing happens to me when i install using steam for benchmarks. In re installing it using entire benchmark package, that includes redistributable packs worked for me.

If you've done BF4 and Crysis for an hour, the problem has to be Valley itself.

For my 780 and 780 Ti benches, Heaven always crashed at lower MHz than Valley.
