I haven't tried anything yet except letting it sit overnight to be played again with tonightOriginally Posted by RagingCain;13098839
I have done this once.
The GTX 580 is very resillient.
Tell me everything you have tried to get it working again and I will troubleshoot as best as I can.
Also what drivers were you using?
Stock I think is .1000 - I was running it at .1150, and is max MSI Aftermark lets us set... I've heard .1138 is safe for 24/7, but I think that was before .1150 was an available option.Originally Posted by DorkSterr;13098877
Wow. So it didn't die of overheating? Is that stock voltage?
Interestingly, the other card I have has an older bios that doesn't have the built-in power throttling feature. With all the hell I had thrown at it, I figured this other one wouldn't be a problem given it was OC'ing much better (though I was having a hard time getting a good gauge on it's OC capabilities because of it's OCP, hence the furmark)Originally Posted by saulin;13098886
Except he disabled the protection and on top of that used Furmark
Yeah, am just hesitant to pull up the manufacturer's warranty page to challenge my RMA ethics if it isn't covered... a moral debate with myself for laterOriginally Posted by BallaTheFeared;13098946
OP can you RMA?
Take it apart, see if there is any physical damage.
Also post screens if there is we love overclocking carnage.
Thanks.. yeah, meant to mention I did leave it out of system. It does have a back plate. Tried using other DVI connector too, should've mentioned as wellOriginally Posted by RagingCain;13098972
Do you have a back plate on the bad one, can you inspect for any burning/scarring?
Otherwise you might have to take off the cooler.
Try using the other DVI connector.
Letting it cool down sit over night is a good idea, but I would have pulled it from the system for an inspection. Verify that when you turn on the computer, the fan on the card spins. If it comes on full blast and stays that way, thats asymptomatic there is a physical problem with the card.
Is it in the system now? Are you able to trouble shoot it?Originally Posted by valdamax;13099009

Do me a favor then, before you RMA it, which is still an option, PM me, and I will help trouble shoot it with you, and if you need advice taking the heat sink off let me know.Originally Posted by valdamax;13099045
Nope, it's being left out of system while I'm at work... will be able to play with it in 5 hours
Sounds like a plan, thanksOriginally Posted by RagingCain;13099088
