Newbie i7 980x Watercool Bios OC

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I have an i7 980x running at stock
Evga x58 141-GT-E770-A1
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB DDR3 1600
Evga GTX 580 HC2
Watercooled system.

I tried OC
multiplier X30 133
Vcore 1.35
Intel speed step disabled
Thats all
its working fine but my Video card keeps failing.
Nvidia driver not responding and recovered from failure.
Is there any setting i am missing?

Usually does that with a failed overclock on the gpu, however a cpu overclock can make it fail too.

have you overclocked the gpu at all? got up to date nvidia drivers?

Yeah like $ilent said, that is more a GPU problem, have you got 2 x 6pin power plugged into it?
Maybe try booting to safe mode with onboard graphics, and reinstall the Nvidia drivers?

The nvidia drivers are upto date.
I OC the GPU slightly to 1950/2250
Thats when it started failing (only on 3dmark11)

580s have a 6 and 8 pin.

First off move the jumper and disable your 2nd 580, isolate the problem. Now see if that works. If not, reinstall drivers (remove in safe mode). If that doesn't work try the same steps above with different drivers. If that still doesn't work back the factory clocks on that card. If that is stable then something is wrong with wrong with the card and should be RMA since that card cant run at its advertised speeds.

you can rma a card because it doesnt overclock well?



op: try resetting your vga's to stock settings see if that works. also download the latest driver for those cards and select "clean install" if that doesnt help increase your vtt voltage a notch or two then try again. if it turns out the resetting your vga's to stock settings fixed the problem, then you pushed your vga overclock too hard with not enough volts. fix a) back down on the vga overclock, reduce the core speed a bit and perhaps the memory speed as well. fix b) crank up some more core voltage. increase it in small increments until its stable (temperature allowing of course).

the gpu works fine at stock.
its just that when i oc the cpu with settings mentioned above, the gpu started acting weird at 1950/2250. how do you increase the gpu voltage? which one is it
i have only 1 gpu by the way

I use MSI after burner, theres a setting in there to unlock voltage setting.
Try upping the voltage 1-3 notches and retest with what was failing. I'd search for the safe "Max Voltage" but IMO as long as your in safe thermals

My bad lol. The op was misleading sounding like you didn't overclock the gpu. EVGA doesn't bin their cards at all really. Don't expect OMG overclocks if you buy a FTW edition just my 2 cents.

the weird thing i see is how are people oc their GPUS too
