bfg 9600 gt ko is a piece of junk

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
First off i bought it at best buy , got home unistalled my current drivers then installed it. Once i try to set the prerender limit to 0 in the nividia control panel my pc freezes. Any time i attempt to start a 3d app with only overclocking the core 25 mhz i get artifacts and my pc freezes. And when im not even overclocking it after about 30 minutes of gaming screen goes black and a looping sound then my pc restarts... And i sometimes get the message the my display driver has stopped functioning. I called bfg tech and the guy i talked to cleary knew nothing about video cards , bunch of newbies there no help from them. Is any one else having this problem with the bfg tech card or any other 9600?

Maybe you could try out one of the latest beta drivers that can be found at guru3d.com perhaps? Sounds like a driver problem to me....and they don't have an official driver released for the 9 series yet.

I had some issues when I first installed my new 9600gt. I ended up reformatting, and am running on the beta drivers of Nvidia's site with no problems. I've played Crysis for hours, and ET:QW's also. Also ran a bunch of 3Dmark, and Aquamark tests.
Good luck.

doesn't "ko" mean overclocked? My gtx came overclocked and I can't really make it budge much without it freezing up my comp. That may be the same thing you are going thru.

It has to do with the amount of voltage given to the card. All the SSC and KO editions have this problem, and there are a bunch of people over at XS having the same problem.

As for you trying to OC your card...it's normal since you have a factory-overclocked card...There's probably no more room to overclock it anymore...or there's just not enough voltage.
