Broken GTX580?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Today i installed the latest folding client (v 7) and when I added my gpu, it started making a very loud noise. I checked AB and my temps were 100C with 85% fan...

So i quickly restarted my PC, and started up a game. And suddenly the same thing happened. The temps were 95C (and rising) with 85% fan in the menu!

This weekend I played several hours of BFBC2, Crysis 2, Amensia, COD and everything was absolutely normal.

I was using 267.24 drivers, so I checked to see if there was an update. I installed 267.31 but nothing changed. I shut down the computer, turned off the PSU, removed the power cable, removed the PCIe cables from the GTX580 and waited 20m. When I booted up another game the temps rose up to the sky again!

I have no idea what has caused this! Any other ideas? BTW the card is on stock clocks and stock voltage (1000mV)

Try OCCT without Afterburner on, see if the same issue occurs.

First things first, make sure the fan is spinning up, make sure it's not obstructed.

fermis tend to make loud noises when folding, both of mine make very high pitched noises and I can usually tune them out, one louder than the other, as for temps check fan to see if its spinning and that nothings blocking it

Yep, within 30-40 seconds the fan is roaring and the temps were 98, just before I closed it.

The fan is spinning and I don't see any obstructions, but now that you mention it, I feel less air coming out from the rear... perhaps there is something inside. Maybe I will open it up to check if something is happening...

@InTeNsE

My GPU at stock has only a little bit of coil whine, it's noticeable but not unbearable. When I fired up the new client today, the coil whine was actually louder than usual, but it also happens with the old client (only today, this weekend it was fine, and temps were normal)

Have you ensured the heat sink is on properly?

Im not optimistic about your situation based on the details... and i hope for your sake its just a loose heat sink.

Best of luck to you.

Strange, have you tried other fan speeds?

Just idle on your desktop and go from 85% to 100%

You should easily notice the fan getting louder after you click apply on AB.

EDIT: Also what version of AB are you on?

the overcurrent protection might have been turned off. Download the latest version of Furmark. run it, and turn off OCP, and then turn it on again (on = not crossed)

see if anything changes

Max fan on the GTX580 is 85%, I can unlock it but I would have to flash the BIOS.

If I turn up my fan percentage in AB it sounds a lot louder, as usual. It's just that now whenever I fire up a game, instead of being at 60-65% 80C, now it's at 85% 100C


I haven't turned off OCP, but I will check just in case.

EDIT:

WOW... that was unexpected... I started furmark WITHOUT disabling OCP and within 1 second of starting the benchmark (standard settings, not Xtreme mode or anything special) I heard a large puff and my computer rebooted alone, no BSOD. Nothing seems to have been damaged... I'm writing from the same computer

EDIT 2:
I just noticed that all the PCB is extremely hot to the touch... It's a lot hotter than usual. Airflow is not the problem
