View Full Version : GPU dying?????
09-14-2011, 04:05 AM
So my GTX 560Ti starting acting up about a week ago when I was playing dead island and tf2. the driver would crash 3 or 4 times during gameplay and the get stuck in "half clock safe mode" and then run without crashing. At first I thought it was the drivers so I did a clean install of the 280's and still was having the problem. So I tried the 275 and 270 drivers and still no luck so I'm thinking the card is dying. Any thoughts?
I was also getting artifacts everyone was Black

gotta ask the required questions.
Power connected properly?
is it seated?
did the cat/dog pee in it? ;)
that's the MSI windforce right? are you sure the heatsink is properly tightened? I took mine off when I got it just to have a look under it. the screws seemed on the "edge" of loose.
check your temps. and does it artifact while at idle? (my gtx280 does if folding)

I'll have to check the heatsink
temps max out in the mid 60's
acts fine at idle and when watching vids and sufring at Safe clocks i.e. 405 Mhz for core

That seems like a safe temp. if the heatsink was loose it would be higher. are you sure the power plugs are tight?

just reseated the card and plugs to be sure and still crashes :(

Sounds like it's RMA time....

Good thing I still have my 4850 for a backup card

I think I found the problem I downloaded a dead island config tool and disabled SSAO and bloom and now no crashes =)
I'll have to do more testing to be sure

cool, but the bloom should work on that card

Now it's back to crashing every 2-3 min
I guess it's RMA time =(

Sorry to hear that, I was hoping it was just a glitch in D.I.

Just got my card back today a week and a half turnaround is great
I'm gonna throw some WU's at it and see how it holds up

YAY! looks like it did the first one okay.
