9800 gt flashing problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok so i have nvflash and nibitor. i have made a back up rom. then used nibitor to change the clocks and the 3d voltage. i flashed it with the -5-6 file.rom and it went good.. reboot to find out my clock changes went fine.. however, about every 30-45 seconds my driver stops responding. reflashed with -4-5-6 .rom same thing. i flash back to the original rom and everything works great again.. any ideas to what could be going on?

i have the latest nvflash and nibitor. i changed my clocks from 550, 1375, 900, 1.0v to 575, 1440, 900, 1.05v. it is not like i did anything drastic or anything.

i am willing to try again, but just need a little advice. i have 2 cards in so if a flash is bad i can easily fix.

You should be able to get a 25MHz oc without even touching the voltage. I could've sworn 9800GTs had 600MHz core as a default anyway.

At any rate, I can't really say why your oc would be unstable at those settings. I never voltage tweaked my 9800s.

this is the eco version. my 9800gt oc runs way higher. but the eco will actually clock to 600,1500,900. but it is not 100% stable. so i figure while i was going to give it a bump in power i would boost its base clock as well.. maybe i need to try something else.. still working on it going over everything and researching.

i think i got it now.. i changed the voltage to 1.05 and the clocks to 600,1512,900. then flashed using -4 -5 -6 file.rom and rebooted after success. it booted up fine, i am running folding@home to stress it. i notice the temps went up 10*C they normaly run 57, now at 67. kind of odd but still low so it works for me. will post later if i have any issues. after i fold for a bit i am going to bench it in sli and see if i have any issues.
