X1600 freezes

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
My X1600 freezes when running a game. This occurs within 30 seconds of starting the game. I've installed the latest videocard drivers from the ati.com site. Using the Omega drivers (2687) results in the same crash. I've already disabled the on-board LAN and audio, disabled the 2 DVD drivers, no luck with this either.

When using the ATI Tool and downgrade the GPU clock speeds from 500 to 400Mhz and memory from 405 to 360Mhz everything works fine.

Any clues?

PSU: 550 Watt 12/6A
+3.3V 30A
+5V 32A
+12V 35A
-5V 0.3A
-12V 0.8A
+5VSB 2.0A

Sounds like your GPU maybe getting a little on the hot side..try getting some aftermarket cooling or reapply some better thermal compound

I would have to agree with Enterprise. It happened to my old 6800 card and had to return it for another.

It is certainly either heat or a weak PSU, or MAYBE you got a bad card but that isn't TOO likely.

It happens to me as well. Got an X1600XT from Sapphire and ASUS K8N4-E (also NFORCE4 chipset as yours) and it freezes after several minutes in 3D mode. I am absolutely clueless of the reason but I know of several other people having the same problem and not being able to solve it as well.
I can provide you with some of my findings: It is not a matter of the PSU. I tried several pieces of a very high wattage and excellent quality but it didn't help.
I also tried several chipset's driver versions. Did not help. I tried several memory modules and configurations. Did not help. It didn't even help to underclock the card for me. I measured the temperatures wherever I could, they are certainly normal. Nothing overheats.
It seems to me like a compatibility problem between the nforce4 chipset and the x1600. Everyone having this problem has these two in their computers. Solution unknown though.
If any of you knows something about it, please tell me. ICQ:258477117

Hi,welcome to overclock.net.
First of all download the Ati beta tool 11 from here :
http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/172
after that see if your gpu is too hot under load temp ,if its so,its definetly heat problem.If its ok try to add more voltage to your vgpu,you can set this through settings and choose voltage control,raise your voltage at your need depends on your temps,good luck

>AndrewBEJ: Hi, thank you for your advice. As I have stated before, the temperature is quite normal. That seems not to be the problem. Sometimes it freezes even right after switching to 3d mode, before it can even heat up. I tried using the mentioned ATI tool but there is no option vor changing voltage. It doesn't support this function on X1600 card perhaps?
Gonna test some more. Please help, someone. I have to get it running.

>[FH415] LOKI: Well, I'm gonna tell them but the VGA runs just fine on another machine (intel chipset - P4) so it's hard to say: "Hey, you made a ****ty card!"
