Have I wrecked my gpu?

So earlier i was overclocking my gpu and was playing some games but I got a black screen so I restarted my computer. It then wouldnt start so I tried again and it had had to restore previous settings from windows.
I then reset all the settings back to default and played some bf3. I was getting lower frame rates then what I would usually get and there would extreme spikes every minute or so where the game would freeze aswell as the frame rate dropping to about 40fps.
I then went to play some skyrim and same stuff was happening just not the freezing.
Some games are still also getting black screens and freezing my whole computer

So is there a way I can fix?

Specs:
i7 3770k
GTX 690
16gb ddr3

  1. What sort of temps were you getting on the card with the OC? Did you stress test it at all?

    Also... what kind of setup are you running for monitors?

    I was getting about 60c during the stress test. The stress seemed fine. And it is just one monitor

    Might want to try uninstalling all your GPU drivers and OC tools, just totally get rid of it all, and then reinstall it all fresh without the OC.

    Also, you probably noticed in gaming that a 690 is vastly more power than needed for a single monitor so I'd suggest not OCing it.
  4. check the temps of the vrm's its normally the first place a overstressed gpu will show signs of something being wrong... you may not have killed em but you may have over exerted them so they become unstable at high voltage/temps and cause a lockup/crash.
