Furmark causes drivers crash on GTX570 sould I be worried ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello !

Good day to you and thank U in advance for any help.

The problem is:

Yesterday I tried to run FURMARK to test stability of my GTX 570. My card is not overclocked right now. After short while of benchmarking program crashes (some artifacts shows on the screen for few seconds) and I get information about display driver crash - Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. I am worried because few weeks ago I was able to run the same test without any problems. Anyway after that I ran Crysis benchmark on maximum settings to check if this will cause crash as well. I ran maximum 99 loops of crysis benchmark test without any problems. So can you tell me why FURMARK has problems ? And is this true that this test can damage my GTX 570 ???

I also read that: "NVIDIA said the new GF110 core used on both of these video cards (570 and 580) dynamically adjusts performance in certain applications (Furmark and OCCT) in order to keep the power within their specifications."

Acoording to that, I assumed that I can safely run FURMARK on my 570 - am I right ???

You see, you are testing for stability with a software for which the card automatically unerclocks itself - I fail to see the point. Yes, furmark should run and it isn't good that is crashed, but the load it puts on the graphic cards is totally unrealsitic and maybe even non-representative to asses stability at a certain clock speed (since the card downclocks). Crysis,3DMark are good stability testers which put a more realisitc load on graphic cards.

If your drivers are crashing at stock clocks then there is likely a problem. Do some more tests such as 3dmark etc and see if that also crashes them. If so you are safer to RMA.

Do not use furmark on the 570/580. It killed some 570's and a few 580's. Use 3d11 or Heaven to test stability.

Like I said, I've sucessfully passed 99 loops in Crysis Benchmark on MAX settings without any problems - checked report and according to it performance was exaccly the same all the time, also I've tested my GPU in EVGA OC Scanner and ran it a little bit in Nvidia Endless City and 3d mark Vantage - all this without single issue. Only this goddamn Furmark gives me headache. Wy this bastard causes crash ? Somewere they said that it maybe PSU - is to weak - but I thing this can't be true if I'm able to ran all other tests without problems, when GPU usage is always at the same level (97-99%).

Furmark doesn't hurt my GTX460s at all, despite it making them reach 84C

It sounds like something is wrong. You should also probably be aware your power supply only has 432W on the 12V rail. Load consumption in Furmark is 446W (AC?), so you may be stressing your PSU pretty hard, especially if your i7 is overclocked.
