GTX 570 Previously Stable Overclock Crashing

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've had my SLI 570s overclocked to 850/2000 at stock voltage practically since I got them. Just recently I've been getting freezing when gaming and I can no longer run 3dMark11 when overclocked where I could before (3dMark). Driver/display crash just as the first bench loading screen finishes and recovers immediately after. Oddly, I can still run OCCT for 30 minutes without a problem...

I've gone back to 266.58 drivers as that's really the only thing that's changed for me since this has started happening but no dice.

I've had one for around 4 months, and the other for around 2 months. With a 1:1 fan profile temps on the hotter card hover around 65c under load. OCCT runs it up to 83c. Both cards are Palit 1280mb.

Could this be a result of my cards degrading? I would have thought this unlikely considering how old they are but I can't think of anything else.

It could be degradation but you said they're at stock volts, so I don't think there's any reason for them to degrade... It could be a driver issue, or some issue with the SLI performance?

Could be degradation, but that's kind of an insane OC for stock voltage.What are the stock voltages of the two cards?

Takes me 1.1v to be 1hr OCCT stable and error free @ 850.

I'm surprised you can pass OCCT for 30mins and end up crashing in a 3dmark run, but I'll say what I did yesterday to someone in another thread.

I've personally had OCCT pass for the 40-45 minute mark and end up crashing my drivers (bsod) or having errors at lower voltages/higher clocks.

Maybe you just weren't 100% stable in the first place.

If you are unwilling to bump the voltage, you need to at least try to pass a 1 hour test in OCCT on multiple occasions. I've also had experiences where I've passed 1 hour tests and afterwards it failed later on.

The reason I consider my OC stable is because I've passed 4 OCCT 1 hr tests on different occasions now.

Disabled SLI, 3dMark at stock clocks passed. With my OC it errored. Something like OpenGL drivers lost connection to display drivers and is unable to conitnue - I dont get this with SLI enabled.

SLI Enabled stock clocks passes 3dMark. OC crashes on first bench and need a full restart to recover. These are with 266.58. With the newer drivers however when I run 3dMark with OC'd SLI the display crashes but automatically recovers. I'm about to reinstall the newer version and try with a single card.

.975

And yeah, I was amazed it's been stable... until now at least.

This is possible. Nonetheless, the crashing and inability to run 3dmark are definately only recent problems without any changes to my system or OC's being made.

Yeah, I can't explain that either, but if you aren't 100% stable then you just never know what might happen. This is why I suggest running more OCCT tests, and try to run them for 1 hour to see if any errors occur.

My VID is .988 and I've told you what volts I need to get 850 stable. I just feel that it is unlikely that you were ever stable at .975

Reinstalled 270.61. Display crashing and automatically recovering on 3dmark with OC. Also Heaven 2.5 runs at max settings with a fair bit of tearing for 5 seconds~ before crashing. All's fine at stock of course.

Back down to 800 core clock and both run fine. I'm not comfortable raising the voltages considering the amount of reference 570s exploding so I guess I'll just have to deal with a lower clock. All this was fine before at 850... I'm stumped.

If an overclock isn't stable, it can crash at random intervals doing random things. Maybe by chance you just didn't experience those back then.

Again, that's why I recommend longer OCCT tests. Have you took a 1 hour test yet? Some people think 15 minute OCCT is stable, but not for me. Like I said before, I've personally had OCCT tests at 45minutes crash.

Thanks for the feedback gl0ry. I've not ran a 1hr test yet - I'll do that in a few when I go to bed.

Something else wierd.. my framerate in OCCT has started fluctuating. Here's a test I ran a few hours ago compared to one I ran a few minutes ago. Same settings. I think swapping drivers back and forth did something?

Before


After


Doesn't seem to be doing this in other applications so it's not a big deal, just thought it was wierd.

that is a bit odd. Mine is like a smooth flat line the whole way through. By the way, I use 8 Shader Complexity for my tests.
