I OC'ed my club3d 9800gx2 700/1750/1200, after that my video card started running slowly( crysis about 15 fps(was 35)).
Now i set default setings again , but it is still slow.

I seriously whatched my core temps. First i oc'ed to 650/1650/1200MHz , temp was 55C. then, i set higher till 700/1750/1200, temp also was good.

maybe i burned my gddr memory?


Please anyone say , wtf i did to my card?i lost my hope to fix it, but maybe you can help me?

Most likely burned it out. Ouch! Hope you bought from a manufacturer that allows you to OC.

First of all, I highly doubt you did any damage to your card. Vid cards these days have saftey procedures to minimize the risk of damaging your card. For example, if I try and set my 9800GX2 to a 1000 Core clock, it would simply shut my computer down ( of course I havent tried this). Please list all your computer components, your vid card driver and any other information. Your temps are fine, 55C is an excellent temp for the GX2. What resolution are you running Crysis at ? Have you tried any other games besides Crysis to see if they run sluggish? Is your power supply up to the task? My theory: you enabled antialiasing either in game or thru the Nvidia Control Panel, which of course would then slay your FPS. Check to make sure you have everything set to default in your control panel. Hope this solves your problem- Annisman

You're a blundering idiot.

OP, pay no attention to this mans ramblings.

Typically when you burn out the memory you get serious artifacts, purple/green dots, and other colorful static, so I dont think that is what you did.

Before I continue, I "only" have a 8800GTS 512. But here are my thoughts...

1. When I overclocked my card, I saw a performance drop in both COD4 and Crysis. As soon as I went back to stock clocks, performance returned. Dont ask me to explain that phenomena.

2. Crysis is such a weird program. The auto-config registered my computer as "high" and set every setting as high and it ran nice and smooth. So I figured Id just SEE what happened if I jumped everything to ultra-high. I goofed around with it for a little bit, then returned the settings to high. But it was no longer smooth. What the heck?
I restarted the game and saw no improvement. I ran the "optimized settings" deal...no improvement. What changed? I have no idea. I had to reinstall Crysis to restore whatever hidden settings got changed.
Vista 64 btw.

So, cliff notes version: go back to stock clocks, then perform you testing with any program OTHER than Crysis. =)

I am reinstaling my vista now, but before this i runed medieval 2 total war on maximum setings and it was only 10fps(few days ago i runed it about 60 fps).

problem is that i overclocked not core but memory too much, but i didnot notice any stange dots or some other s**t on my monitor.

Talk about a blundering Idiot. If your so sure of yourself do it, then post your results.

Can you run a 3dMark06 test too? That'll help also in determining if something is messed up.

roadrunner 197069 and annisman go finish yourselves at other places...
As for this thread, if there's really nothing you can do, you can consider taking it to the PC-tech-dude or just change it with the warranty(if there's one)

You nincompoop, I don't have to set my core clock to 1000Mhz to know that it will shut down my computer.
I know that it will becasue I'm not benighted like you. Stop posting useless information. :non:

I'm happy you know more about rim jobs, and fudge packing then I do. I don't care to know anything about these subjects. OH SNAP!

Goodbye! :heink:

I answered the O.P.'s question to the best of my knowledge in my first post.

Well you both don't fair off too well...Roadrunner what Your saying is very ignorant, offensive and shouldn't be said in forums. I mean there are younger posters here too please try to restrain yourself.

I wonder if a BIOS flash of the vid card could eliminate lingering malfunctions of a overclock gone wrong. assuming that was the problem.
May 2, 2008 4:00:50 PM

I've had mine running crysis with the fan at 45% fixed, after I exited it was at 92 celcius. How about lowering the memory clock speed? I doubt anyone has 1200 running artifactless, max I can do is 1150. Did you try reinstalling the drivers?
May 2, 2008 7:07:59 PM

What is the memory rated at for the 9800GX2?
8800GT = 1000Mhz
8800GTS = ?
9800GX2 = ?

Wasn't the 9800GTX 1100 (or 1200)?

Anyway 1200mhz might be the issue.
9800GX2 = 2x 8800GTS?
May 2, 2008 7:26:05 PM

i reinstalled vista and drivers and still gpu is slow
here are my system specs and 3DMARK result



as you can see my drivers are fully updated, but why my OS reports me that is i problem of my nvidia drivers?

May 2, 2008 7:55:35 PM

OP try resetting everything to stock speeds. Run a couple of benchmarks. See how you do. 1200 does seem a too high. You could try reinstalling the newest vid driver. As stated before the card should protect itself from incompatable settings. Insure that BIOS voltage settings are at auto for the card while you sort this out.

Here is a review. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/news/2860

Based on the review and stock settings I would say that you were too aggressive with the oc.

One additional thought: do you have the old card on hand? Try reinstalling it, just to make sure the rest of the system is OK. Run a few things to see how things are working. Then reinstall the new card. It is possible that some software setting is crippling the new card and that the reinstallation by windows and the driver will reset to the default and fully functional settings. DO USE DRIVER CLEANER. Use newest BIOS and newest vid driver.

Anyone else notice that the forums have become a more hostile place? No need to call anyone an idiot or anything else for that matter.

yes now set tu default clocks.

My CPU is e8200(no oc) , now is score at 3dmark 12900 ... it seems no bad?

i have vista 64
May 4, 2008 11:39:56 PM

12900 is not a bad score for a dual core cpu a 2.66ghz this was run at all default settings? Other than this score does the system feel like it is running correctly? Are you able to try a slight overclock of the cpu? Did you try installing the old card then the new? Crazy I know but is the card fully seated and properly installed? What driver edition are you using?

Newest Vista 64 link - http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x64_174.74_whql.h...

As this could be many things and you have several posters here to help, please provide more and timely feedback as to the current status.

What is just your cpu score in 3dmark 06? TH has a test score of 2479 for that cpu.

**********************************************************************

Just to anyone else who will listen do you think that THG is getting behind the times?

I just went to look for a score for this video card in the charts. Not listed for 3dmark. Also none of the 9 series from nvidia are listed. Do they have a lab anymore?
