Alright so a while back these cards were doing just fine, previously I used nTune to overclock the cards from 640 to 670 and there wouldnt be an issue. Runnin 2 XFX 8800GT's in SLI on a 780i board
Then I formatted a few weeks ago, noting that I hadn't played Crysis in some months (5-6 about).
Now for the problem:
I downloaded RivaTuner and overclocked them once again to 670, ect ect, and crysis locked up - screen pixelation - bleeding, ect.
So I thought hmm, heat? So I set the fan speeds to 100%, and put a portable fan in front of the case to maximize airflow. Even after setting the clocks back to default (640), after about 5-10min in crysis, it still locks up...
GPU-Z gave me a log printout and it indicates that the cards run around 61 at idle, and before the crash they were pushin 82 - 84C, which is very hot considering they used to run around 75C when playing crysis.
Any ideas as to why crysis keeps locking up on me?
Any help is much appreciated!!
*And I should mention that after looking at the 2nd card in GPUZ, its idling at 77C....wtf o_O*
