I just assembled my computer last night, got it all up and running and out of where my screen just turned green with what looked like refresh lines. I could still see what I was doing for the most part. The card was not running too hot, around 54C. But a restart cured the problem; I also did it when I was running 3d mark 06. I restarted, it fixed it, ran it again then nothing happened, until shortly afterwards. I am running an EVGA 8800gts in a gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6. I did reseat the vid card to make sure it didn’t come loose. Nothing is in the case right now; I’m still burning everything in.
I just trying to figure out if it was the vid card or the monitor.. Honestly I think it’s the video card, but I want a second opinion. Also I’m not sure if it driver issue, card firmware is flashed to newest, and the drivers are the newest out on EVGA’s website.
Well both items are less then a day old. got the stuff in last night.
Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB
Corsair HX Series CMPSU-620HX 620W P
EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800 GTS
SCEPTRE x22wg-Gamer Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen HDMI LCD<--- this is the one currently hooked up to computer.
Samsung 941BW SyncMaster 19in Widescreen<-- spare, G/F is using it for the time being.
I pontsed the 22 off my rents... I ordered them a dell told them it had 2gig memory and upgraded the moitor sly.. I had two 15" before moved one on another computer and have the 15 above this 22 with media center palying... running at 53, didnt check idle.
I am on vista, first time i booted into XP, ran prime.... 1mil took 20.2 seconds on stock. I was a happy bunny, last result was 52 seconds on celeron d.
Have you overclocked at all? I dont think Im going to bother, Im a deisger/code.. watch and play cideoa/mp3s.
actually im going to make sure everything is stable for about a month. Then im ordering stuff for water cooling. Then i plan to overclock the damn thing till it hits a wall. I dont need to overclock it at all, but its just the fact that i can with little trouble so i might as well. *everyones doing it*
H2o is great and will keep your gear really cool during playing, but comes at a price (unless you are good at carving copper chunks into heatsinks with water journals). If you know what you are doing and know what you want, and have the setup in mind, you can get a lot of the plumbing parts at the hardware store, such as fittings, tubing and clamps. You can cut down costs that way so you can get the pump, radiator, and blocks you need. I have had mine on water for 3 years and it runs cooler at load than of my friends' most at idle.
Well what im looking at is a blend between DD and swifttech. I priced a good chunk of it and the total is going to be around 200-250... That includes cooling for the 8800, i will have the cpu & gpu in the loop. i want to use a reservoir, because I don’t want the hassle of a t line, and all that crap. Btw this will be going into a TT Armor
The reservoir will be going in a 5' bay, well thats what i want
Well found out what the problem was, It is the monitor. Finally got it to mess up again, immediately switched it out with a different monitor, no problem. So it looks like ill be setting it up for an RMA.
