3DMark06 & 3DMark11 Stability Problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am having problems getting 3DMark to run successfully with a very modest overclock. I have tested the major components independently of each other, and they check out. But when I run 3Dmark above 700/1600 GPU, it crashes. Any advise??

I should mention that my card started out as a GTX465.
Before you go telling me "there's your problem" look here: Confirmed unlockable When I first flashed my card, It would do 740/1600, but now it wont do 740/1600.

Here are my stresses:

I know I didn't stress for very long, but it confirms that the clock is 90% stable. In my experience, a failed overclock happens in the first minute.

Doesn't really seem to complicated....3DMark06/11 stability != 1min @ Kombustor (not full screen either) stability.

What are you saying? If it passes 1min @ Kombustor it will pass 3DMark06/11?

Thanks

He means that even tho you pass kombustor for a few minutes, it doesn't mean the card is stable.

Also unlocking might have been fine, but the higher you go, you might start reaching the sweet spot where your card just can't be a 470 due to melfuctions.

Correct, I'm simply saying they are not equal. Usually, FurMark stable means EVERYTHING else is stable too....but not always.

Also, test with fullscreen mode (it makes a big difference).

Kombustor is using the same engine as furmark, only under MSI name.
They are giving the same result in the end.

Another option is testing with OCCT, which has harder on the GPU.

But the best way is running benchmarks for either games or like 3dmark/heaven and see if the card pass. If it can pass 2-3 tests, it is usually fine (because sometimes you can still get a fail on certain times).
