post #1481 of 9641
So im stumped.. i really think its Win7 or video drivers now that wont let me get stable past 3.6Ghz. Ive tried 1.4v to 1.525v for the CPU, for the CPU-NB 1.3v to 1.45v, for my RAM 1.5v to 1.75v and for my NB 1.1v to 1.35v no matter how long i run prime95 for and it passes i could be doing something little and randomly the screen goes black and freezes. My temps now with the Mega never go over 48C. When i game i get this screen
Attachment 127865
Nothing seems to work and its just not stable...Either Nov 4th or 9th Im gonna RMA my board RAM and pickup a 965 C3 stepping.

If anyone has any other ideas they want me to try im open to anything right now.

dir d: From what you have just posted it makes me believe that you are correct and you have a GPU issue.
Does this happen when running stock? Do you have another system you could try the GPU out in(even a friends)? Try running Furmark and see what happens. GL

Other news: I am still working on the SLI thing, altho I think I have it figured out (fraged my old win 7 install in the process) I am working on getting another install going as well as trying to save everything I can from my old OS, as well as setting up a second "testing" OS for this process so it may be a couple days.

I have no problems at or under 3.6Ghz. Ive ran furmark a couple times on this card, It runs along the lines of where it is supposed to. Ive tried diff 5870 Drivers also i just dont get it.

how about a different catalyst control center version? Also If you do end up returning I would recommended going to your nearest brick and mortar and handpicking your chip. That way you get the stepping you want as well as one that has a SN that ends 90100 or lower.

I wish we had something like that! Sucks... Luck of the draw here.

Also there is a new CCC that was released last week? Not sure if you've tried it or not, but it fixed a few problems I was having with the 5770.

I didn't know that. A few people have mentioned 'burning in' the chip to me, but never explained what they meant.

Thanks,

3rdman, hit delete if you have 790FX-GD70.

Dir-d,

try bumping up your "NB-PCI-E" voltage from 1.10 to 1.15. It's down at the bottom above the SB voltage settings.

See if that helps. If not put it back to auto and try the "NB-PCI-E I/O" votage. Put that at 1.82 or 1.84v. Auto is set to 1.80v so it might take that much to stablize things. That the thing with OCing is that start throwing the harmony of the system off...

any help would be great - so for so many posts
Your tRC is too tight. Loosen it up to 31. The way to get the figure to put in to the tRC spot is by adding the TRP & TRAS. So for you it'd be 31. Although you can stray 1 or 2 from that figure.

Hit delete during the splash screen that has the GD70 logo when you first boot your computer.





For you guys trying to hit 3.6, try these settings.

HTT (FSB):225
CPU Mult.:16.0x
HyperTransport Mult.:9x
NB mult: (what ever you guys want to run it at)
Set Ram to 1500:
And depending on your RAM, Timings: 7-7-7-20-27-1T (that's only if your RAM can handle it).


And kind of an odd one here. I went to validate with CPUz and got this.
