Gtx 470 !!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone .. this is my first post here .. and I hope you could help me.

I have a GigaByte GeForce GTX 470 the one comes with 3 fans and I think
there is a problem with it ..

I'm running it on Stock clocks ( 630 CoreClock , 1260 ShaderClock, 1674 MemoryClock, 1.037 V ) and I only get 16-30 FPS in GTA IV .. and when I try to overclock it using AfterBurner to ( 750 CoreClock , 1500 ShaderClock, 1760 MemoryClock, 1.037 - 1.087 V ) the screen goes black like the computer shutdown and it freeze while testing it with Kombustor or playing..

I've tried voltages from 1.000 to 1.087 ..

I don't know what's wrong .. But I hope you could help me..

and for the information .. I want to Overclock it to higher clocks like ( 850, 1700, 1900 ) and more if that possible .


thanks in advance .

looks at your CPU .......

PROBLEM FOUND!!!!

you need a quad core 2 run GTA 4 correctly

you will find that your graphics card is probably at 60% utilisation most of the time

I went from a E8500 @4.5Ghz to my current CPU...

with one 480.. and my FPS more the doubled in GTA 4

Yea CPU definitely the bottleneck. Replace that CPU and you will see your frames rise.

Gta4 is one of the few games that do utilize quad core cpus...most are optimized for dual core cpus.

I would run some benchmarks like Heaven or Vantage to play with the settings and rule out any bottlenecks.

hm.. on the OCing front....

could be your PSU... or could just be a card that doesn't like to be OCed...

they do exist....

i had a 8600GTS back in the day.. i couldn't get any more then a 10Mhz core OC on it....

Lol @ misinformation in this thread...

Yeah sure GTA 4 benefits massively with a quad, but on the other games his CPU would be more than adaquate.

I've no idea what the issue is so I'll leave it to someone who does, but his CPU is NOT the issue here.

Wait, have you got MSI Kombuster? if you have then run it with everything at stock. and tell me if it is stable or not after 10 - 20 mins.

My brother just got a 470 and it failed, he needed to turn voltage upto 1v for it to be stable. so he RMA'd it. You'rs could have the same problem but im not sure.
