So lets say I lower by .25v, and it doesn't crash....

keep lowering the voltage until it crashes? and raise it?

Kinda' off question, but are you saying my crashes are completely voltage related, and I *may* be able to get higher clock with less voltage?

Just a noob at GPU OC here.

i'm saying your crashes are likely voltage related. games test the gpu moreo so 1.10 may be stable in everything, but bad company 2 may need 1.15 etc. im saying if you take your overclock and lower the voltage a bit and run the test you should see kombustor behave the same way your games are crashing after a few hours. in other words, reiterating my hypothesis that your issues are gpu related. i don't know if i can explain it any more clearly than that.

I just say do what you have been doing, game to see if it's stable. I'm also new to OC'ing GPU's and I've also notice that OCCT/Komb/Fur are all stable but a game will really tell me if it is stable or not. For my temps, Fur and the rest stressing 100% GPU only go to about 60c while BC2 will push it into the high 70's, and will cause it to kick back to default if it's unstable.

I wish there was a quicker way to tell it, but if playing games is what it takes to test stability, I guess I can do that

The bold was my confusion. You meant my GPU core, or my GPU in general? My system was stable before the GTX 580 upgrade. Not confused about my CPU OC.
Was just trying to understand if you were saying my "higher" voltage was causing my crashes, more-so than my GPU core OC clocks themselves.
I have been reserving doubts that lowering my voltage would make a current clock more stable and less prone to crashes.

Just the wording.

You could clarify more clearly if you may.
If I lower my GPU voltage and it crashes in Kombuster that you recommended, what are you saying? "It will crash like my games"
So if I lowered my voltage and Kombuster crashed, what exactly does that mean? I should raise my voltage again? Lower my GPU core until it works with the lower voltage?


That you believe 1.15v is causing my crash in general, core clock aside?
As in, you're saying 1.15v would cause me to crash even if I was at stock clocks?

Not trying to be rude, I appreciate the help. Clarification is all I wanted.

Grey screen is too much voltage, given your current cooling method. Screen can also be green/white.

Thank you!


And thank you travva, I didn't fully understand that grayscreen definitely meant high voltage prob, since my temps are so good.

More voltage = more stress on the hardware. Problems can be related to voltage being too high but doubtful in your case. You would need to raise voltage a lot more for that problem to occur, but then you take the risk of frying your card. What he is trying to say is that if your oc is stable in kombustor, it may not be in games. So for example, 900mhz requires 1.113v for stability in kombustor but may require 1.125v for stability in games.

Raising voltage usually always increases stability.

Im happy with my OC, stable in games, OC scanner occt etc. I have some input for this topic however, my 570 if clocked above 920 core will freeze and the screen will stay green or red or white or brow or black or grey but just one solid color, until I reboot. I tested this and it is not a voltage problem, Happens at 920 core from 1075mv all the way to 1213mv @ 920 core. What I'm trying to say is your card might not like anything higher than 920-930 core, regardless of voltage and temps.

For a typical 580, 1.15v is about the limit for air cooling. You're doing good on clocks too. Since I'm not the kind to drop clocks, I'd find a way to get it colder. Better cooling will change your world.
