HD 4870x2 on it's way out?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This has been baffling even me. I started experiencing random resets hard locks and BSOD. It stunk of Memory issues. I fired up memtest and ran it for a DAY on each of my 4 dimms with not one single error. This is on Mushkin Blackline DDR3 1600 7-7-7-20 1.65v. So *** I thought. I started doing CPU tests and they seamed stable enough. But graphics benchmarks would sometimes result in a BSOD or Reboot. Eventually I started getting failure to posts left and right. Sometimes locking on DET RAM and Sometimes on VGA BIOS (on the iROG LCD Poster). I would also get "Overclock Failed" bios errors even with NO overclock. PSU tests out fine, and I'm under the assumption that if a CPU goes it will either work... or NOT work. Visually checked my Mobo for popped up resistors and the like. Didn't find any. I removed my CMOS battery for a solid 5 minutes, and reinstalled it. Reset my bios settings, and am now running fairly stable. Got my CPU back up to 4.2 GHZ, and it tests OK on OCCT. But I still get some hard crashes and stuff In games. I did a Format and fresh install of Win7 64. Newest ATI drivers, even Updated my MOBO Bios. Today i was playing around with CCC and noticed something. It will fail "test Custom Clocks" even with the default values... This might be the cause of my problems? Its water cooled, full coverage block. I've never even seen it get all that hot when watching it in Everest. Runs far cooler than it did with the stock air cooler.

What do you guys think? Is my 4870x2 getting ready to screw the proverbial pooch?

What happens if you run GPU: OCCT and GPU: MEMTEST?

do you have any other cards to test?

Won't let me says I need a "Cuda" Card or higher some memtest GPU is disabled.
Nope no PCIe cards I can test with.

I found a program called VMT (video memory tester). It runs like memtest98 but in windows. It took 2 hours and found NO video memory errors.
