it's been one day since i build my rig..
I have a Sapphire HD 4870 512 graphic card.. It was working fine with zero issues..
then, i downloaded Riveturner just to moniter my gpu temps..
I tried to overclock it and set it to 800 core 1000 memory.. and that was it.. One second it was working and then without alarm the system went off and a black screen with no singal!!
I checked everything.. everything except the card i working very well. I tried booting with the intergrated graphic .. No issue!
I checked the card.. The D1601 red light is ON ! and the fan is permenantly at 100%
What is the problem?? please help me
I was playing GTA4 with that setting for 5 min.. and then it stopped working..
When I switch on the pc.. i have no signal in monitor.. and obviously i cant go into windows in order to run the stock settings
Is there any chance?
The D1601 - Red LED On, shows critical temperature fault.
Graphics cards are more sensitive to OC than CPU's, especially with stock heatsinks. You do have a fault that much is sure. Try running in a different slot if you have one. BTW, is there any burning odor or any evidence of over-volt?
If the LED never turns off you may have damaged the GPU.
