Do not buy the 9600GT!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
The 9600GT suffer from an issue known as the "Black Screen of Death" where if you play games for a while, the monitor just go blank afterward. It is a known issue. I would be careful if you buy the 9600GT. Majority of the 9600GT suffer from the BSD.

Thanks for the info. I was looking into getting one, but looks like I'll hold off until this is fixed.
I wonder if it's a hardware problem or a driver problem :\\

It seems to be a voltage issue with the 9600GT. I would go for the 8800GT or 8800GS.

its probably drivers... same exact thing happened to high end 8-series cards when they came out... nothing new.

I've got 2, so does my dad, and so does my cousin. All EVGA's and none of us have had any issues with this.

you are always going to see a few issues with a new product. The origintor of the thread is simply over generalizing... chances are 98% of the products are fine

lastly, the hardware is not produced to be overclocked thats why you take a risk in doing so

This is from the eVGA thread:

"I hate to tell you, it is not the drivers it is the hardware, period. Driver may have some impact, but ultimatly if you underclock and the device operates fine (like mine) it is not the drivers. What it indicates is this design is particularly sensitive to overclocking in unpredictable ways. Whether it is the local power supply not providing enough power to the core for short high-current requests, or some board layout flaw that inhibits stable operation at other clock frequencies, it is NOT drivers, so don't have false hope here.

The evidence is clear to me that it is an interaction between overclocking and hardware. A driver change *could* fix it, maybe by preventing the scenario which causes the hardware crash, but don't hold your breath or you may get purple. Likely it will be a part value change or more bypass caps on the board, but not a driver fix."

Nope, it is most likely a hardware issue.
