Geforce 560ti Issues - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guy,

Thanks for the stacks of replies! Although MSi said I could just up the voltage a bit it didnt quite work out that way. No matter what I did in afterburner and I have used it before on other cards the Voltage option was blurred out which seems a bit daft! A quick look around the net and I found other people having the same problem with this particular card. Apparently you need to flash the bios of the card to unlock it which I didnt fancy doing!

My Vcore for CPU was at 1.39 so I upped it to 1.44 and Mafia seemed to run fine for the first time ever!

Batman also seemed fine and didnt cause any problems.

Would you guys not recommend the powersupply that I have?

Thanks for all your help with this, hopefully have avoided an RMA!

Tom

To enable voltage adjustments with the gtx 560 ti, you need this version of afterburner:

I agree that your PSU is a weak link; having blown two I now never cheap out on that component.

Glad you got it sorted mate.

I assume you meant to say you have an CM ExtremePower (Elite is one of their case lines) 500W? It's really not the greatest PSU by any stretch. Whenever you've a few extra quid to throw 'round, I'd upgrade it. Ripple on this unit, as mentioned, is a little high, but it takes a long time for ripple to degrade components. So within the next 6 months or so should be fine.

FYI, anytime you have a game or driver crash, all bets are off as to whether your PC continues to work 'normally' in any capacity. Usually it's fine, esp. if it's only a game .exe that crashes, but no guarantees. IOW don't start to worry unless problems continue after a restart. And some games ... they just randomly crash sometimes. Doesn't mean anything's gone tits up or is even dodgy.
