Old issue, some suggestions ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Heya.

So basically I used to make alot of threads on different forums about this and couldnt get any help that would help me with this.

Basically I get white horizontal lines flickering in games. In furmark my card starts whistling and as it pitches up, the lines slow down and I can see 3 black ones, then it goes back to white ones.

Specs:

Gtx460 768mb
phenom ii x4 965
gx 550 W Coolermaster PSU
win 7
g skill 4gb ddr3

Things ive ruled out.

GPU. RMA'd 2 cards, got 2 new ones, same issue. 2nd new one tested at friends, he had no lines.
Processor. At the time I had a Phenom ii X2 555.
Ram. Tried friends Corsair 4gb ddr3.
PSU. Tried his Corsair 750W
Monitor. Tried friends monitor.

And yeah, basically same thing.

Only thing I havent tried is a new mobo which I doubt is a problem.

So taking all these things ive done, what else can I try ? Im buying a GTX560 Ti quite soon aswell. Might buy a new mobo after that.

It's the old 460 coil/cap whine. It's like a disease 460's are not immune too. Some cards do it some don't. Guess me and you were just the unlucky ones that got the whining babies but nothing to worry about anywho. It's artifacting too, which is bad. Its either not being fed enough volts or its running too hot either way thats usually easy sorted.

Tried at stock, also temps never go above 70'C

Reminder, the card did NOT do the artifacting at all on friends PC, he games at the same res as me and we tried both monitors.

Also, about whining, like I said when the pitch noise gets higher, the lines slow down and I can only see 3 big ones, then it whines again and normal flickering starts.

Edit: Tried making a screenshot of this, its not visible on screenshots at all.

Your mobo has 1 PCI-e slot? Did you mess with PCI voltages in the BIOS? Have you tried resetting your BIOS entirely? Do you have a multimeter? Sounds like it might be artifacting from under-volting.

Never messed with any voltages, where its mobo, GPU, or CPU.
I did try resetting the BIOS, no help.
I did do a software voltage check last time and everything was fine.
The mobo has one PCI-e slot that supports modern GPUS yep.
