8800 GTS graphics failing?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 


This is what happened with my 8800 GTS while i was playing Oblivion. It freezes up for about 15 seconds or less then does that. It also did this a couple times in GTA: San Andreas. Temps are below 80C.

I noticed it does this when when i push the core clock too high. Any ideas?

it did this with the older drivers also. I thought you could get at least 621-625 Mhz out of a 8800 gts/gtx core but i guess it's not truly stable as people think? My memory is also over clocked a bit also (1700 Mhz)

Could a over clocked CPU cause this?

Have you tried running your video card at stock speed?

I think that's what it is but it should be able to handle 621/850... guess not?

It must be your GPU, have you stress tested your GPU overclock?

Did you have a Superclocker/KO version? They come pre-overclocked.

My card default speed is 513/792 (1584)

Download ATITool 0.27b and tell us your temps. And use the scan for artifacts feature.
