GTX 580 Current Alarm?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Running Furmark 1.9 on my sig system with SLI (used the "cheat" of renaming the executable to enable it to get around the SLI issue). Running the Bench in pretty much any mode results in an audible "alarm" or "buzzer" sound. I am monitoring my temps very closely, and they never get about 75* C, so I am wondering if it is part of the OCP circuitry? WAS that an alarm?

What the heck was that?

It's probably coil-whine, and I would avoid Fur/OCCT for the sake of not burning up the cards...

Do you have it plug into a ups? if so it’s that which is making the noise. It’s basically telling you, the PC is drawing more power than the battery on the ups can supply.

Hmm....you may just have it! I DO have it plugged into an UPS! I didn;t even think of that! (You think I am gonna risk that sucker to be plugged straight into the wall!?) Good catch! I will have to do some tests to verify, but if that IS the problem, I guess I will have to step up my UPS a bit.......anyone know a good, high current UPS for a good price?

I think in normally gaming mode it will not do this, only when you’re using stress testing programs it will overload your ups. Just unplug it from the ups when you want to stress test. But I do agree with Saltwater that you really don’t need to use Furmark to stress your gpu's. I would run heaven or 3dmark11 in loops, then game on it for a while. Those stress testing programs put too much load on your system.
