Gigabyte GTX570 overclocked GV-N570OC-13I crashes!
« on: May 15, 2011, 06:32:47 am »
Hello

My GTX570OC crashes during games and during stability tests with MSI afterburner/Kombustor.

I downclocked it even to 732/ 1464.

Is there any bios update to correct the issue? Don't want to go RMA since i am outside of the purchased country without Gigabyte support.

Really driving me nuts...

I dont mind to have it underclocked at 732/1464 but it has to be running obviously..

BIOS: 70.10.17.00.03
Driver: 270.61

There is a new bios for the card, you can download it from here: http://gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3685#bios

Hi as already suggested try updating the firmware. If you still have a problem set the voltage to the same as the standard card.

the good thing is that the card is workin as long as i dont go for a game, that would mean the card is properly working?

will try the firmware patch and report back, some one tried it? does it correct the issue, I mean is it addressed in this firmware upgrade?

what is the standard voltage for the stock card? and with what program can i do it, MSI afterburner does not show me any voltage
thanks

Edit: the BIOS update did not solve the problem
Edit2: The voltage tewak solved the problem, stable at 0.963V, will check on how high i can go with that stock voltage,

think its not very professional btw to give out a oc version if the company can not verify on all cards that it works, so 3 out of 5 stars from my point of view, sorry

thanks

Glad the voltage tweak has helped sort the problem. I have heard of other users doing the same in this situation. The problem with any overclock is that no two chips or cards will behave the same and so when it is tried on a mass scale there are going to be failures. The only way to overclock properly is on a one off basis.

Be careful not to raise the voltage too much or you could end up burning out your card.

well i thought i solved it but then the display driver stopped working for 4 times and then finally i got the blank screen again after 2 hrs gaming.
I am on stock now with std clocks and 0.963V, what should i do now?

4x :
''The NVIDIA OpenGL driver detected a problem with the display
driver and is unable to continue. The application must close.

Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html for help.
Error code: 4''

then black screen and 2 times:

''Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.''

Thanks

The only thing I can think of is to increase the voltage a touch to try and give it more stability.

i tried to set the voltag in MSI. i set .975 and in GPU-Z it shows me idle 0.906 and when i want to run kombustor it shows only 0.941 and then the system crashes and i have to hard reset.
what voltage do i have to set and where so that GPU-Z does show me .963-.967 or .975? thanks

I also noticed this on my 560 OC version. It looks like BIOS always uses lowest possible voltages, and sometime it is nit stable. SO I put lowest to 1.025 V and high to 1.075V, and problem is solved :)

I use Nibitor to modify BIOS, then flash card with that bios.

You can always go to Nibitor forum, system admin is very good men, he will "clean" BIOS and make it green integrity ( in Nibitor) and will also modified BIOS for you if you ask. I also spotted same thing as you, that Nibior have red integrity fro BIOS downloaded from web site, but with NVflash you can always extract BIOS from your card and give to him. As I say, he will clean BIOS and modified for you.

might have been a driver related issue and the msi afterburner on 2.2 beta2 version..

In Nvidia forum they said that error code 4 is corrupted registry or .inf file of the driver, or is the the VGA BIOS i updated?

I used the 285'er with selected 285 download for the 270.61 driver when i was experiencing the issues, might this have been an issue?

anyways, my new HDD and Ram arrived and i changed them and did a complete re-install, the card is reset back to stock voltage and clocks of the OC version.
should i use 3dMark instead for stability testing and OCCT only?

thanks
