Mafia 2, continued.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So.

During mafia 2 gameplay I sometimes will get a crash to desktop and all graphics on icons when hovered over will go strange etc, which is kind of weird.

At first I thought it might be because of my CPU overclock, so I reduced it from 3.8 to 3.7. While gaming at 3.7 it did it again.

So ive googled it and saw someone had similar crashes due to temps/overclocking. Set my fan to 60, temps did not go over 64C, and the game is very GPU dependant.

During 3dmark11 and Heaven 2.5, my GPU overclock seems to be solid as rock. Also ive got no problems during battlefield bad company 2.

So my questions are how can I definitely check my GPU OC is stable, its at 910mhz now (Which isnt alot away from stock TF2 GTX 560) so it should be solid as rock and in benchmarks it is.

And another question, is mafia 2 just a game that dislikes any kind of overclocks or something ?

I would get Evga's OC Scanner (ONLY IF YOU HAVE AN EVGA CARD), or Msi Kombuster, then get some game benchmarks, like the crysis bench, just cause 2 bench, metro 2033 bench etc. Run the oc scanner, or kombuster for about 20 minutes, and the oc scanner will tell you if there's any artifacts, but witht he kombuster, you have to actualy look at the screen and see if theres any. Then run a ton of game benchmarks and 3dmark in a row, and if you don't see any artifacts, or your performce doesn't drop since your overclock, you're stable. If that doesn't work with Mafia 2, then reinstall mafia 2.
