Phenom II Overclocking Guide - Page 13

Maximous, the only other thing you can try is completely uninstalling/deleting the game content and Steam. Perform a clean installation of Steam and CS:S and see if that helps. Do you have AA or AF enabled in the graphic settings?

Good luck

Hei again. I just made this discoery yesterday. I must be the worst rig builder ever:/.
When building this sig rig i forgot to think about cablemanagwement and psu. I thought it could be the answer to my question here but sadly noooooooo. On my modular psu i had connected ALL my hardware on one side of the psu. I think its 40a-40a. So I dived into the case and got the gradic card on the other side and tested with prime blend and furmark to gether. I know for sure it ran 3 hours without problem but when i woke up today it had shut down again. DAMN!!! And ive ran prime blend alone for 20 hours yesterday. No problem what so ever. Could this be a faulty grafic card???

Gonna test with my old 8800GT card later today.

So then I still have to try to uninstall and download steam and its contents.

How do u seperate your cables on the psu???

40a: mobo, ram, hdd, dvd????
40: grafics, fans?????


Thanx

Maximous, just to clarify you ran Furmark overnight and the machine locked up? The only thing that comes to mind is temperature issues which I believe you have already verified during testing?

In regards to the psu cable question are you referring to cable management or power requirements?

Good luck

I believe he is asking about power requirements.

For the PSU power requirements and which "rail" to run things on and how to divide the power draw onto those rails...

Most PSU's (even the ones that say they have more than one 12v rail) actually share a common 12v rail "backbone" that they all draw from. It is wise to split them up anyway, but you don't generally run into issues with to much amperage being pulled from one of the rails and not the others.

I personally Don't think it is an issue with the power being drawn unequally from the PSU. Furmark is a VERY intest GPU testing tool, and it is known for making the temperatures run much hotter than they would be under normal circumstances. My guess is that the GPU is overheating (probably the VRMs, as I've heard that furmark can actually be damaging to GPU's if run for to long), and causing the computer to shutdown. Especially if you've already confirmed that you've had previous overheating issues.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Good luck

Hey thinker and logan.

It was the power requirements i was refering to. Just wondering how U guys divide the hardware on a psu.

And for the question about furmark: I ran furmark and prime blend at the same time. For sure it ran 3 hours without problems. But when i woke up it had restarted.

Should i up the rpm on fan gpu? Think max temp before i went to bed was 65C. Isnt the max temp for 295 gtx 80C?

Edit: Ill be gone for some hours now. Mounting push/pull and lap my PhII and Northq watercooler.

Maximous, I recommend just running Furmark by itself for now. Hopefully that will let us determine whether or not the video card is the culprit. That full load temperature is not all that bad. I'm assuming this card still has it's stock cooler? Increasing the airflow inside of your case could also help those temperatures.

Let us know

Good luck

Ouch, nobody likes leakage. Hopefully it didn't kill anything.

And unfortunately I don't know how to fix anything on a GPU (I'm not that skilled with a soldering iron.

Good luck with everything.

Maximous, if the electrolytic/polymer capacitors are damaged then those can be replaced.

Your cpu cooling says "stock" so what exactly leaked? Did you have an actual water leak in your home? Ouchy =\\

Good luck
