GTX 570 OC PROBLEM !!!!!!

GTX 570 OC PROBLEM !!!!!!
« on: April 16, 2011, 04:10:55 pm »
I've been having problems with my gtx 570 oc with every game. The games crash everytime i play them. But if I downclock the core to 732mhz (instead of 780) everything is ok. So what should I do to keep the core to 780mhz or more?

Hi and welcome to the Gigabyte Forum.

This is a problem that has emerged recently regarding some of these factory overclocked cards. I think they are probably overclocked a little too agressively and not all of them seem to be able to remain stable. As you have found if you downclock them to stock levels they are fine. I think it might be possible to use a new firmware to fix the problem soon.

Thank you for the reply.
But should I RMA it? If I do RMA it , how long it will take?

Hi

I really can't say because we have nothing to do with other areas like that but I do know that you don't have a Gigabyte Service centre in Bulgaria so you would have to arrange with your retailer to RMA it and ship it to the nearest one.

In that case return it to the retailer and get them to arrange the RMA for you. There is a Gigabyte Centre in Spain so it shouldn't take too long.

Yes it's deceased! ;)  What other explanation would you like?

Seriously it probably just failed as it had been overdriven and couldn't manage the clock speeds and something has burnt out. One option - RMA.

Well it's not so bad as at least it will cure your problem with the OC not working properly. ;)

Yeah, not so bad. But if the second card does the same problem i'm gonna change to a different manufacturer.
