HD 5970 with 9800GT as Physx Card

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there

I just got my new HD5970 back and installed it in the first slot and my spare older 9800GT is at the second last slot.
I patched with Physx Mod with latest Nvidia and Physx drivers. all seems to be running well with FluiMark and I can see the Nvidia and Physx logo.

For soemtimes however i get a Physx crash while running the 3DMark11 benchmark during the Physx test and sometimes when playnig a (non-Physx game) the ATI driver stops to response and the game crashes to desktop.

Is there any incompatibility with running both cards, should i remove all Nvidia driveers and Physx and the GT card? Or is this purely an ATI card issue since it stops t respond and the driver recovers?

Thanks much and Happy New Year guys!!

No compatibility issues.

First you should return all overclocks to default speeds, test.

thanks mate, its not over clocked, all running at stock speed with latest CCC. However, I believe my system is too hot with current ambient temps in teh 27 degree region.
watercooling should help...
but is it a driver issue or just overheating??

thanks

The only two driver sets that I've had any consistent luck with my old HD5970 were 10.4 and 10.5a (with the latter being the most balanced in terms of overall performance across many games). See if using either of those with the latest CAP file helps to stabilize things.
