gtx570 artifacting ... RMA time?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
ive been running at 930mhz 1.1v for 2 month.. about 1 month on air, 1 month under water

never had any issues but it just started showing artifacts today... it's ok in desktop usage, but trying to run a bench or load a game, it'll artifact/freeze up even at stock clocks now.. ive reinstalled the drivers but no luck

it's going to be a pain taking off the water block and putting the stock cooler back on for an RMA.... what a hassle

is there anything else i can do before resorting to an RMA?

There isn't much you can do if stock clocks are still giving you artifacts. Get that card RMA'd asap so you can resume your gaming endeavors.

i thought 1.1v under water would be fine... just bad luck or is 1.1v also too high?

1.1 volts seems to be the average. I doubt the problem is your overclock...it's mostly hardware. GTX 570's are dying at an incredible rate for some reason. There was a thread just for posting your dead GTX 570 and what you were doing when it tapped out. Been a lot of GTX 570 RMA's over the past few weeks.

Ever seen the "how I killed my 570" thread? lol You should go post in there.

570's have a weak 4+1 phase power.

I would sell the 570 new from rma and live off a backup card till the new 590/595 comes out and snag a cheap 580.
