ATI 5970 Koolance Water Block Problem Help - Page 2

Yeah, but he said that the card works for an amount of time, for my money it should be either working or not with fired parts...

could you go back to the air cooler you used for a bit and run some benches then? gets temps? And also, what temp is the water in your loop running at?

Right, and one assumes that it lasted for a while without the green problems and such like?

Hmm, I just clocked my 5970 to the same speeds you have set. I think it something wrong with your clock.

Set it to: Volt 1200, Clock, 900, VRAM, 1190. If you have manual fan control then make sure it is at least 50%, or get ready to speed the water up in the loop/fans too.

Ok here is what i did to fix this issue. I just formatted the other day and had to fix it again. 10.5 should have fixed this but I had to installed 10.4 first before 10.5 would work. Follow this post..

"originally posted by eventhorizon

--- truncated ---

PROBLEM 2: Random crashes. Description: While NOT playing games, ie doing anything in 2D or when the computer would go idle or into screen powersaver mode, the crashes were almost certain. Windows graphical corruptions were also a tell-tale sign of the card being unstable and an impending crash.

My solution: Again after much reading, I came to the conclusion that Windows 64bit was not playing nice with my 5870’s powerplay function. Mainly that the idling 157 clock speed was not enough to keep the card stable when idle. After updating the card’s bios, I could go hours without a crash when playing a game, but then it would crash after I was done, when it sat idle on the desktop.

I came across this solution that forces the card to idle (2D) at a higher clock. I had to set it to a clock speed that Windows 7 would be happy with. (For me this was 400 when idle, and the stock 850 when running games)

Steps:

1. Open CCC

2. Unlock and Enable Overdrive if they aren’t already.

3. Go to Options/Profiles/Profiles Manager. Create a new profile. Under composition make sure “ATI Overdrive” is checked. Save and Close, DO NOT ACTIVATE.

4. In windows go to: C:\\Users\\{yourusername}\\AppData\\Local\\ATI\\AC E\\Profiles (you will need to have “show hidden files” turned on for this)

5. Open the xml document with the name of the profile you just created (notepad is fine)

6. Change the values of the Clock and Memory speeds to look like this (these specific values are what worked for me and my card, use judgment) EDIT ONLY THE BOLD VALUES.



Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0"

Property name="Want_0" value="40000"

Property name="Want_1" value="60000"

Property name="Want_2" value="85000"

Feature

Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0"

Property name="Want_0" value="90000"

Property name="Want_1" value="90000"

Property name="Want_2" value="120000"



7. Save and close. Go back to CCC and activate the profile you just created.

This will make the card idle at 400core, 900memory. (2D clocks are the "Want_0" values)

Conclusions/Observations: My system has been completely stable for 4 days now, whereas before I would get 2-3 crashes each day.



I know this was long, but after much searching in these forums, I figured I should share my experience and solutions and hopefully help someone with the same issues."

We also have a post about this issue here on OCN.
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...e-problem.html

It's with the EK block but should still work on yours. Also when you boot in to window you will still have the same issue but just log in fast and let CCC/driver/profile kick in and it should work just fine. The reason for it crashing is because it clocks down to damn low to 157/300 on the 10.5 drivers it clocks to 400/1000 but for some reason it didnt fix for me when I installed 10.5 first. Do the steps with 10.4 then install 10.5. Then enjoy great temps and fast games.

If you still have any issues after this please feel free to PM me.
