Having problems with OCing/New Drivers/8800GT.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I uninstalled Rivatuner, uninstalled old drivers, installed the new 175.16 drivers and installed Rivatuner. After resetting all my preferences I got back to OCing. I climbed up to my 'bridgehead' point of 660/1700/1000. That point has always been stable for me. So today I decided to focus on Core. I got it to 680/1720/1000. And it was stable in Furmark and that... floating ball weird stress program which name escapes me.

Long story short, I got to 680/1750/1000. COMPLETELY stable on stress tests. Not a single artifact for hours at 65c max load. But when I play a game, it says "Display driver has failed and recovered" and of course the game crashes. Temps are fine, stress tests pick up no errors and again temps are fine. Why does it have such a huge crash? Help.

Lots of people, including myself, have been getting this problem. I found that pushing my core speed down a bit, even thought it was stable in all those other programs, got rid of the problem. I feel like its a driver problem because of the amount of people with different cards getting the same error.

Yeah. I don't think 20Mhz would make such a violent difference. I should never have hopped over to 175. Those first 174 drivers kicked so much ass. As long as its a driver problem I guess I can't do anything but wait. But thanks. I'll try a compromise and put the core to 650 and the shader to 1800.

I dropped my core from 850 to 846 and it stopped the errors from happening. 650/1800 sounds good to me.

Whats a good ceiling to put the Shaders at? I'm getting really good temps because of my fan setup. Right now with Furmark at 8x AA I'm getting 71c. And thats a load way more stressful then Crysis, which I get 60c at. Do you think 1900 Shader is out of the question?

Well, shaders dont go higher than 2000, i found out, so as high as you can get below 2000, without compromising core speeds. mem I would say between 1000-1100, no higher, and again, core is more important.

I'm not too worried. Almost everyone and their mother can get the GT from 950 to 1000, which is a better place to leave it. I'm worried about Core the most but as it is with Drivers I can't get that too high.

I usually get this too. My usual clocks with my 8800GT were 750/1850/987 on 169.25. When I upgraded to 175.16, it wasn't stable at those clocks, so I had to bring the core down to 740.
