Man, I need some help...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well, I've been having alot of serious issues with my sig rig when it comes to running games mostly. Let me first state that you can all assume stock clocks on everything. Also, I've ran Orthos for 12+ hours and still reporting stable. My issue is this : terrible frame rate drops (PSU?) and odd textures here and there, although the texture errors are always the exact same, even with fresh driver / windows xp installs. Now this has all been happening since I was stupid enough to not use a surge protector, and a power outage happened and severely messed everything up. Well after a complete rebuild, I got everything working again, although now I am experiencing the frame drops and texture errors I mentioned. I have tried a few different driver configurations, still the same problems. Now in my motherboard's BIOS, volotages are all great, except 12V is a little low at 11.87V, but my PSU has dual 12V rails so this would only be indicating the 12V lead to my motherboard, no? Now to scare me a little more, speedfan and Everest are showing a dangerous 11.10-11.40V. So do you all think my PSU is fried? Or maybe something a little more serious? Oh, also, ATI Tray runs overnight fine and when I scan for artifacts after the 12+ hour "heat-up" phase, she is clean. Also, my 3DMark06 score is still 5100-5200, which is what I scored before the power outage. And the issues are mostly exclusive to OpenGL applications. My other thought other than PSU is that maybe my motherboard has a compatibility issue with my x1950 GT as it is a strange setup with PCIe 4x and AGP 8x on the same board, but then the issue should have occured before the power outage. Sorry for the long post, but the information was needed to assess my issue. I can't really use another PSU to test as I've only got a 480W Delta and a 380W Antec, neither of which could run this setup in the first place, that's why I bought the 600W. Any other way to test the PSU?

600W are more than enough for your setup. Well if its fried that would be bad but it strikes me weird that the error in the games are not random. So in all games you see always the same graphic errors? Is your GPU OCed? Try returning it to stock clocks if it is. Can;t think of something right now . Have you connected the extra power cable the GPU needs? I am sure it needs it cause even my 6600 needs extra power from the PSU since AGP is not enough. Hope you have connected it >>

card is at stock speeds, and all power leads are connected, there's two molex on my x1950 GT AGP. And yeah, the graphic errors are always on the exact same texures. Call of Duty 2 is probably the worst. You know how the farther you are away from a texture, the lower quality it is? Well the textures change out of high quality when only like 10 in-game feet away, and not all textures change out like that to lower quality. I'm not sure if that made sense. Still trying to figure this out, just went through ANOTHER XP install...

Could you use this PSU calculator and check if you have nough power, which i believe you do.

I know my PSU is capable, that is, unless it is toasted...any one else have any bit of advice whatsoever? I guess I could buy a PSU and take it back if it doesn't solve the problems I'm having. Dark Messiah is terrible too, almost as bad a CoD 2.

I'd try a new PSU, but make sure that if that's not it, you can take it back for a refund!

But it does sound like your PSU isnt giving enough juice when under stress!

i've had surges totally hose a great PSU and even GPUs... get a new PSU and see if your issues go away... as there is no way to really test it without some serious hardware...
