Having bad luck OCing my 8800GTS G92

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So, I've had my BFG 8800GTS G92 to 750/1750/2000 for the past two weeks stable, without any artefacting, until now. This is without voltage increases, and fan speed at 70%.

However, for the past two days i've been getting artefacts in games and Black/Blue screens of death, not to mention reboots. I even tried to artefact test at stock speeds, and after an hour it rebooted.

Seriously, what am I doing wrong? My clock seems to be fairly conservative, compared to everyone elses. How do I end up killing my video cards when I overclock?

I'll probably have to RMA to BFG.

Id say pretty conservative clocks. maybe PSU isnt up to the task? Or like you said , maybe bad card.

Take it back to stock clocks. Does it still artifact?

Well, I doubt its my ram, I memtested each stick oc'd six passes+

My PSU is 610W, which is more than enough for what I have

And it artifacts at stock clocks.

What am I doing wrong? Last video card I killed, it was a BFG 8800GT at 700/1700/1850, died within a week, though it just artefacted, no BSODs.

Is it because I'm not upping voltage on my video card?

Could a cpu overclock cause artifacts?

Because, I've been artifact testing my GTS G92 at stock speeds with my BIOS settings almost completely stock (vDIMM is at 2.2v). It's been stable for the past two hours, which makes me suspect its my CPU Overclock.

It artifacted at stock speeds when I was OC'd to 3.2ghz, so...
