A Failing GTX 285 OC

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I see that the temp is not passing 57 degrees playing Crysis:Warhead but I keep crashing! BSOD - the dreaded and old nvlddmkm error is what is showing. I believe it's the OC since before I OC'd I never got that error. Just OC'd last night and began testing it this morning on Crysis:Warhead.

It's the OC, lower the clocks or up the voltage

OK. Now to figure out if tweaking voltage is possible with this card.

Use Afterburner, and edit the settings file to enable unofficial overclocking.
Change the option to 1.

I'm currently trying to find out what the default voltage is. I'd be glad if someone could give me a target range for voltage, so I can avoid setting it too high.

By the way Nvidia users a new driver just came out yesterday.

I got told thare is no volt contol. i got mine to 750 overclock. its a bfg 285 OC 666core. I only played bc2 for 8 hours on it or so. then hooked up 480 to water loop and 285 sitting ever since, I left fffan on auto. i got 480 + water because it was summer and 285 was heating up room to much. But ya 750 overclock was + 15 fps in bc2. from 90 to 105-120 fps. dx 10 effect and shadows on low. new drivers are more or less for the 5XX cards. i see no difference in 480gtx. I hope io keep droping in evga setup drop like 200 in 2 weeks. cant wait till 580gtx + overclocks Muahahah.

After bumping up SB Voltage, the overclock that wasn't stable before became stable (from 712 clock/1332 mem/1620 shader to 745/1338/1705). I played Crysis fine for some time.

Then I decided to go higher since overclocking is all about finding out the max stable speed. So I took just the clock up to 761 and played. It crashed. I restarted PC, added 1 bump of SB Voltage (up to 1.23v) and ran Crysis:Warhead, I-could-not-believe how fast Crysis:Warhead was playing there for a second, but it crashed again.

A pair of 285s can slay crysis. I haven't needed to bump up the SB voltage unless at extreme cpu clocks, adds a bit of stability then. Never really experimented with it at lower clocks, have to look at that. Have you tried different drivers & see if the nvlddmkm error is still there?

Crysis benched with volt modded 285s (hardmodded, no software voltage control for 285s)
