Geforce 560ti Issues

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

I have a MSI Geforce 560ti Twin Frozr II and am having problems with it artifacting.

My system is

AMD Phenom II x2 560 BE 3.3Ghz (Overclocked to 3.8ghz and cores unlocked x4)
ECO ALC Water Cooler
8GB DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Ram
Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 880G Socket AM3
Coolermaster Elite 500w PSU

I originally had a INNO3d GTS 450 1GB Graphics card which I had to send back because it started artifacting after a few weeks. The company tested it and said it was faulty and refunded me.

Guys I’m at a loss now, I spent a load more on a better graphics card the 560ti and had it about a week, all of a sudden its started artifacting a few days ago on Mafia II so I guessed it could just be the game mucking about. A restart fixed the problem, I was playing Batman GOTY Arkham Asylum last night with everything whacked up to MAX and it ran brilliantly. The fan on the card was coming on and off as it needed to then 40 mins in the game executable stopped responding and then when I load up Google it starts artifacting and wont load anything up at all graphic wise.

I borrowed a friend’s 8800GT and used it for two weeks while the company were sorting out my GTS and that was absolutely fine not a spot of trouble.

Could it be that I have two dodgy cards from two different suppliers and two different makes!!

I’ve got a video clip of the artifacting which I’ve uploaded to the net,


Any Help greatly appreciated! I’m getting desperate!!!!

If bot Mafia II and Arkham are steam games I'd check the validity of game files, your card may also be running hot so I'd look into that too. Or you got a bad card. Though that would suck.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, Ive checked the validity of both games in steam and they all come back fine.

The Temp of the Graphics card on HWmonitor is not going much above 60 when its working hard.

Ive spoken to MSI today who actually suggest I load up afterburner and tweak the voltage up.

What do you guys think?

Thanks Tom

Using msi afterburner to increase the card's voltage, say by .04v more or less, is a good idea to try for fixing the problem. Another test is to set the GPU clock to its factory default, 882, and leave the voltage unchanged. If either or both of these work, it tells you that the GPU on your card is a marginal overclocker. In this case you can either live with it and have afterburner tweak your card's setting at boot up, or complain to MSI in hopes of getting an RMA replacement. If neither of this afterburner settings fix the problem you definately have a defective card.

+1 to this.

crank up the voltage in afterburner......
or u could try ur card in another system...

After giving your problem more thought:
Since 2D displays are artifacting, my guess is either you got a defective card or a computer that eats graphics cards. Checking it on another system, as mentioned, is a really good idea. I doubt that a voltage increase or GPU underclock will cure this problem, but it's really easy to try. Good luck!

with unlocking the phenom processors a strain can also be put on other parts of the board. what are your core volts and your northbridge volts? you may need to up you nb volts because with a more powerful card more strain is put on the nb.

i don't think you had two bad cards in a row, but the 8800 does not draw power the way a 560ti does...not to mention with as much power as the 560ti has it will definitely stress your nb some.

i say bring it back down to 2 cores running at stock clocks and see if it artifacts then...

The PSU that your using has a lot of voltage ripple which on high drawing cards and overclocked systems can start to destroy components. Your PSU is the most likely culprit to your dying cards, you can't pair a weak PSU with heavy hitting parts.

560 doesn't draw a ton more power than an 8800gt...do you really think thats it?
