after i do the instalation of the card it wont enter to windows it will just freez in the logo when is loading, i could make it work but only with one of the cores working, i disable it on windows and now the card is working but only using one of the cores and that sucks . .
I need help to fix this problem.
NOTE: i have tryed diferent drivers, it did work fine until just a couple month a go, i have tried diferent OS giving me the same problem
ATI Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock)
QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 965, 3684 MHz (17 x 217)
Hard drive 465.7 GB
4 gb RAm
- Output connection:
* 1 x 20 +4 main connector pin
* 1 x +12 V power connector 8-pin
* 2 x floppy connector 4-pin
* Connector 6 x 4-pin peripheral
* 6 x SATA 5 pin connector
* 1 x PCI-E 6-pin
* 1 x PCI-E 8-pin
No.When their are multiple rails you can't combine/treat the amps the same way as a single rail.Each rail has it's own power.The actual +12/v rail wattage is actually a lot less than 60 amps.
Another thing to note is that this PSU is listed as being 800watts and even if it had a single rail with 60 amps that's still only 720 watts.I'm betting the actual wattage is somewhere in the 600 watt range which is still fine for a 5970 but you just can't trust these crappy PSU makers.
You see how many amps this PSU would have if you combined all the rails?
i noticed something im not sure what does it mean, i can only work with one of the cores, if i try to work only with the other one i have the same problem wish is freezing at windows start. Does it mean that meaby the problem is it not the psu ?
It might be not important, but few days ago i got the same problem ( frezee at logo ) and i realized its because of ram ( i have 2x1 Kingston and 1x2 GOODRAM ). I needed to change ram into other slots. Maybe it will help.
Just curious,why did you O.C. with the FSB and not the multiplier? The 965 is a BE(unlocked multiplier) and it's such a small O.C. No sense in making things complicated if your only going for such a minor O.C.
