560 SOC driver quits at 90-91C

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I wanted to make sure my 560 SOC was stable, so I've been trying out some stress testers. While ATITool ran fine, Furmark and OCCT both stress the GPU temp-wise. With both, once the card hits 91, the driver quits. I've tried with the fan manually set to 100%, no dice there.

Should I RMA to Newegg? To Gigabyte? Is this a problem? This whole process (building a new computer) has been extremely stressful, but at the same time if the card is bad and is gonna fail on me I want to know. The only game I've had an issue with thus far was BC2 (white screen of death), but this is a problem that apparently plagues a lot of people, and the card itself isn't even close to overheating, and it seems to have been largely fixed by turning on V-Sync.

This is pretty interesting: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=338146

Maybe the card/drivers just has problems running that hot.

Also: GPU Memtest on OCCT shows no errors after 10 passes.

Also: My idle temp is ~34-36C, while gaming is 62C and under.

i'd rather try a loop of 3dmark or heaven then running furmark or any other out of this world stress test. u will not stress your card as much as these things do. test your cards with crysis benchmark loops ( if u have crysis ofc ). i for one, stopped using these extreme stability testers long time ago, and never had an issue with my computer which is over 2 years old except for graphic card which i got 2 months ago. so what im saying is, if your card is stable for the things that u do, u dont really need to go through 2 weeks w/o graphic card just to be stable at the things u wont be needing anyway.

just for future references about the Gigabyte 560Ti SOC, they stress test each one going out of thier plant using Furmark and other programs so they can see if it's stable so i don't think us the consumer would need to stress test the cards, i mean granted it's possible that it worked for them but may not work for us but still tho most stress testing is normally done by game benchmarks as what was mentioned above like crysis.


the SOC is also part of the Ultra Durable Series aswell soo i wouldn't be to concerned about it,plus to by what you mentioned it's only happening when it's in furmark and occt and those 2 programs create additional not neccessary heat on the video card.


10 passes on each program with no errors, well to me by what i've read it's good.

62c is pretty normal for the SOC series soo like i mentioned i wouldn't be to concerned about it im pretty sure to also that other people who got the SOC reach similiar heat temps using furmark and such (as mentioned in the link but he was running SLI which drastically upped the temps if the 2 cards are to close for the top card to breath).

but this is all my opinion by what knowledge is out there from several small(but in-depth) reviews and the companies own testing reviews. do plz disregaurd what i've said if it's not satisfactory or that there maybe errors within the explination someone else may of found.

The 500 series have a max threshold of 98*C instead of the 105*C like before. Getting that hot is dangerous. I freaked out when my 470 would hit that high and bought the Icy Vision to keep it cool.

Well, it's giving me problems in JC2 now, so I'll have to RMA it.

temperature has a lot to do with stability.

no game is going to be as demanding and get as hot as furmark. ur safe.

Unfortunately, even when it's only in the low 50s, it does the same thing in Just Cause 2. The fan doesn't even go past ~50% speed, so I am doubtful it was a temperature thing.

My current issue now is how to convince Newegg to send me a UPS label for free!

And you know what's weird

I haven't had a single issue with BC2 in a week or so

In fact, the card has run cooler and the fan hasn't had to go beyond 50% the last time I played

Argh, but it's still a good idea to RMA. Right?

it's normal for full-loading temp.

All right, so Newegg has received the card and approved the RMA. Good deal. The question is, though, is will I get a replacement or a refund, since the 560 SOC continues to be out of stock. It's also gone up in price--would that affect my refund? (They do say current market price, after all.) (No, I don't suspect I'll get the free game coupons they've recently been offering.) If it is a refund, should I wait for them to restock? Decisions, decisions.

(As far as I can tell, the SOC is better than a 6950 1GB or 2GB.)

Alternatively: Are there any new cards coming out soon? This might be a non-issue, since they've "approved" the RMA, not backordered it. So, uh, maybe they *do* have some in stock, and they are holding them in reserve for situations like this?

Blah.
