OC'd 580 = BSODs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Since replacing my ATI 5870 with a GTX 580, I've been hitting BC Code 124 BSODs very intermittently during game play. Last one was yesterday after an hour of CS gaming.

My understanding is that BC Code 124 should prompt upping VTT/QTT. As I'm running a i7 970 @ 4.1GHz, that's a possibility, but it has been rock stable until the GTX 580 went in. I'm OC'ing the 580 to 875Mhz, though temps are good as am using the Accelero Xtreme Plus cooler on it. Have been running it at 1.138.

Before I begin messing with my CPU settings, can anyone confirm that the 580 could be causing the blue screens? Shouldn't I be seeing artifacts or what not if it's unstable ?

....or, could the larger VRAM and power draw from the GTX 580 be affecting the QTT/VTT voltage that previously worked well with the 1GB 5870 ?

the larger power draw could be throwing off your OC in short. run your overclock through OCCT for an hour and check the stability of it with the new card. I am having the same issues currently and so far it seems to be fine now that I went back and tightened up my ram and add a little more voltage for my overclock.
