Is my system in danger?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Asrock P67 Extreme 6
i7 2600k @ 4700 mhz
MSI geforce 570 GTX

My computer crashed when I was overclocking my MSI geforce 570 GTX, or actually when I had a supposedly stable clock (checked with error shader complex 8 and without error checking for 15 min both and then 1 time 1 hour errorcheck).

I started 3Dmark11 and my pc powered off and a nasty smell arouse. So I unplugged the powercable, waited for like 15-20 mins and then tried again but the system would shut down in 2-3 seconds, and then it wouldn't even respond to the power button anymore and more smell arised.

So I took out my geforce 570 GTX and put in my geforce 7900 GTO. I booted the computer but it kept restarting a couple times, and it reverted to default bios settings. Then I got a blue screen when starting windows, it seemed to come because of the bios reset that put AHCI mode to IDE mode on my Sata 3 disk.

So I put on AHCI to boot up again, I removed Nvidia drivers and rebooted, downloaded correct nvidia geforce 7900 GTO drivers but installation failed! So I rebooted save mode and ran drivesweeper to remove nvidia traces, rebooted, installed nvidia drivers succesfully and here I am.

So far it seems everything is normal again, though for some reason I am worried other components might be affected because the grahpics card failure.

Is this possible? Or would you say my system is ok? Or am I worrying for nothing?

Anyway I request a RMA for my videocard.

GTX 570s die often because of their bad MOSFETs. It's a common problem when overclocking and hopefully none of your other components were damaged.

did you increase the voltage to the 570? and to what? 570s are bad overclockers... they can't take alot of volts, there was a thread about people melting their 570s

if it's on then it should be ok... test furmark at standard clocks and see if it pans out

I increased voltage from 0.987 to 1.050 which is by no means a high value.

LoL furmark? my 570 crashed within 3 seconds even @ default clocks, eventhough OCCT ran stable, i uninstalled the piece of ****. I can't run 3dmar11 since I have an DX 9 card now...

But what I am asking here, is it possible that other components where damaged in my computer because of it? and if so what component's would be likely to be damaged? Motherboard? CPU ? PSU? In my opinion CPU and PSU should be fine? And a small chance motherboard? Though this is just a wild guess.

EDIT:
I tested with 3Dmark06 @1280x1024 and it ran fine though at the test with the lightorbs purple and greenish orbs, the test froze at 0 fps for like 10 seconds and then continued, the rest went normal untill the deep freeze test where again like 6-7 seconds the fps went to 0 and then continued like normal...
Should I be worried?
My 3Dmark06 score:


When I google I see this card is getitng 6000-6200 3dmark minimal and I remember I think I got 6000 ish when this videocard is in my other pc with an E6400 @ 2.6 Ghz.

I ran 3Dmark06 a second time and I counted the seconds at the wisps/orb test that it stood still at 0 fps. That is 16 seconds of a still image .. :S don't understand it..

But at the deepfreeze test this time, there was no slow down.

And my 3Dmar06 score is also different: 5996 now... about 400-500 points higher then last time.

you have a 4x2 gig ram config

run memtest and prime blend @ stock speeds.any errors?

also remove 2 sticks and run 2x2 dual channel.

if you pass these tests,your hardware should be ok.

remove the soundcard and reinstall windows without the marvell and the xfast usb drivers.

run 3 d mark again-any changes?

As mentioned above, the GTX570 is an epic fail by Nvidia. Bad mosfets. Cards dying even from a moderate overclock. Nvidia is really on a hot streak lately, aren't they? They even had GTX590's blowing up, when using OFFICIAL drivers included in the retail box, and overclocking them (with vcore increase), and they're claiming that the reviewers were using beta drivers...

Looks like the similar problem affecting 570's and 590's...

Yeah I won't touch that 570 again. I just leave it @ stockspeeds from now on... The only thing bugging me is now this 3Dmark freeze problem...

My ram is running in dual channel.

I'll run Memtest, how many loops should I do? is basic testing enough? When I put in my usb key it starts testing right away, without me telling what to do.

And im testing 3Dmark06 on my other computer now(asrock 775 twins rev 2.0, Core 2 DUo E 6400@ 2.6 GHz)

See if the problem also persists on this computer...

Just a side note. If ever you get that electrical smell again, power down and don't reboot. Check your components immediately and don't risk damage to anything else. Shorts have a way of cascading down and killing motherboard slots. Any damage enough to produce the awful burning electric smell will be easily detectable by a blind eye.

The most damage the frying could have done in the worst possible scenario is take the slot it was in with it but as you say, everything is fine, you're good. Try to to fry the new one.

Thanks.. ill try to remember that.
There was no sign of damage on the videocard as far as I could see... I tried like 2 or 3 times after the card was fried then gave up..

Should I try the videocard in my next PCI-E slot? Maybe that is causing the 3Dmark weirdnes? I have 3 PCI- 16X slots on my motherboard, but the one I was using PCI express slot 2 is recommended for use of single VGA cards it says in my motherboard manual.

You'd have to pull the cooler off the card to most likely see the damage to the mosfets. Either way I would suggest checking the 7900 in a different slot. For your board (did some research) PCIe4 also works at x16 with a single card. Worth a shot. Default the bios before you boot.
