Crazy Overclocking Problem!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have my sigrig cpu overclocked as listed. I have random crashes every once in a while(I am thinking because of my REALLY trashy motherboard that I've been using for 2 years and it is dying on me). So i decided to test it out by setting all my overclock settings back to default and making everything stock settings. After doing this, the restarts became frequent Freezes that make a buzzing sound when playing a video game(HoN) and i have to restart my comp. By setting my settings to stock, my computer became very crash prone? I then reoverlocked my processor and the freezes went away. I need insight. xD Thanks

First thing to do is do a fresh driver install for your 470.
Download DriverSweeper
Uninstall 470 via Device Manager
Go into Programs/Features and unintstall Nvidia software
Reboot into safe mode, run driver sweeper and remove nvidia drivers, display, hd audio, physx
Reboot and install latest driver

If that doesnt work..

I would recommend running Memtest86, download the bootable and burn it to a disc and boot to it.

Run it with all your ram in, do at least 2 passes. If you dont get errors then your ram is fine..

If you do get an error run it with one stick in, do 2 passes in each ram slot, then put the other stick in alone and do the same thing.
If it only errors in one ram slot its the board, if it errors in every ram slot on one stick its the ram. Otherwise see below
Next
Try running IBT at maximum for 20+ passes at stock.. If that passes your cpu should not be the problem.

Last case is to do a fresh install of windows, if your boards bad you will have to with the new one anyway. See if possible file corruption is causing it...

Hope this helps... Seems like alot, but cheaper than buying a new board for a 775 system...
