evga gtx570 issues part 2

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok I'm on my second attempt now at getting a gtx570 to work, first one I sent back due to locking up loading windows.

I think it may be something psu related now, I was having the same issue with my new card. But on a hunch I decided to switch to a different 12v rail off the psu and it would actually load into windows, but I get some serious artifacting when it's loading in, plus the fan starts surging and my computer willl freeze, unfreeze, freeze etc every few seconds. I'm running an antec neo-power 650w blue psu. I've been running this thing for about 3 years and haven't had an issue, but I think I'm at it's current limit as it's rated 19a per 12v connection (Need combined 38a on a gtx570). I really don't want to send back the card again, I'm hoping it's a simple issue of psu going dead, or just can't keep up. I want to pick up another psu this afternoon, but would like to hear some opinions before I go out and drop more money on this thing (since it's in very short supply these days.)



rest of info on computer is in sig.

Thanks in advance

The 19A should be ok.
It might be that over time the PSU you have just doesn't supply the requirments as it should.

If you have the option, get your card to a friend, or ask to loan a PSU from someone, and just connect and see if it works.

unfortunately I just moved about 100 miles from where I used to live and really don't know anyone that well by me.
I dunno, it powered my bfg gtx280ocx with out a problem and that thing is a power hungry little bastard.
but It could just be dying.

the fan on the card surging though seemed a bit odd and it locking up my computer is strange. I've been running at 4.037 ghz 24/7 stable for months now with out an issue, so I don't think that's the problem, I even dropped it down to 3.7ghz to see if that would help, and same thing.
I already have my spp voltage at 1.60 (bumped it up to test) and mcp at 1.47v on my mobo, I wanted to run aeda64 to see if I could monitor my voltages to see if my 12v was dropping, but with the thing freezing up every 2 seconds and the fact that it was already after 12 (I get up at 3:30 for work) I threw in the towel.

I don't think 19A is okay. Its better to be sure than sorry. Don't risk of losing your system. You might never know it might spark or burn. I've seen many people always suggest getting a reliable power supply before anything else.

Here is the official site of your card.
http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...012-P3-1570-AR

And it says there (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 38 Amps.) .

Although sometimes we know the sites say it need a 500w or 600w but some people even run some SLI setup on a 650w power supply. But why websites say it requires more? Because there are many people who don't know much about what a good power supply can give or whats worth it.

Plus you are even overclocking which says you might be at risk 50/50.

I hope it helped didn't mean to scare you or anything but don't load your power supply much or else it might just blow up or burn.

Thanks, I"m going to pick up a better power supply tonight, found a thermaltake 750w with a 56a 12v rail for pretty cheap at microcenter (I'm on a bit of a limited budget atm).
I can do up to $150 so I"ll see what they got there that runs at a higher spec.

19A from a 12V rail is capable of supplying 238W of power, more than enough for a single GTX570. That's assuming you have nothing else plugged into the rail.

Had similar problems when I made the jump to the GTX470 on my last power supply (Cooler Master 500W). Had the watts just not the amps. Card's fan was erratic and I never did get it to load Windows. My sig rig power supply solved all my problems. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

well it's got 3 12v rails (really one bridged off) and the 3rd one I have powering a few case fans (3 120mm's)
It wouldn't do anything originally, once I switched to a different source it actually loaded up, I was originally running the 6+2 pci connector off the hardwired cables off the power supply (one that has the 24 pin atx connector). Once I switched to 2 dedicate 12v sources from the modular part, it would actually load up. That's the one thing that is making me think it's the psu. That and the surging of the fans.

38A is for the whole system, and not just the card.
If it was for the card, even the enermax 1250W PSU would not be enough as it has "just" 35A per rail

The 650W PSU he has, has a dedicated 19A rail for the GPU (and it gives 24A to the motherboard/CPU). This is more than enough, as long as the PSU works fine and in its parameters.
If starting to die, it might not give enough amps for those rails, and might be need to be replace.
