GTX 460 wont play games

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently built my new computer it consists of:

2500K
p8p67 mobo
2x2GB xms3 Ram
Asus gtx 460 768MB

Not really sure what else you would need to know. The problem i am having is when i try to load 3Dmark11 or any games my computer crashes it also crashes while testing WEI. The system only crashes however when i have overclocked my CPU when it is on stock settings it works fine. Now i know what your thinking it must be the stability of my OC but i have ran multiple tests and my OC seems fine it passes prime95, superpi, OCCT and intel burn test. Yet it crashes whenever the test involves using graphics therefore i believe my OC is stable but my GFX is to blame.

Thanks in advance and please ask any questions you need.

If at stock it works fine and only screws up when OC I'd say its an unstable OC.

But then wouldnt it also crash when i run prime or intel burn or any of them i mean they are very cpu intensive and should tax my cpu more than a simple WEI which is what made me believe it must be the GFX.

What kind/size is your PSU?

I ran prime95 overnight, did a 30 pass intel burn test, 5 32M superpi passes and 1 hour OCCT i guess i could go longer on the OCCT but as it was fine over night on prime i dont see why it would auto shutdown at the start of 3dmark11 or any games.

My PSU is Sumvision powerX2 700W do you think that could be the issue i would have thought that was enough yo power it.

I never heard of that psu but i don't like the look of it. I bet you would have better results if you had a Corsair since it has good amps. I bet it's because you got a crappy psu.

I think your GTX 460 can't play your games because it doesn't have opposable thumbs. That's just my 2 cents though.
