Good or bad?? Trying to figure out what's causing my games to freeze up to a solid color screen every now and then. Probably overheating. I ran burn in for about 5 minutes, then canceled it and ran the benchmark test. Usually at idle I'm at 30C. Gaming, SWTOR at the moment tends to hover in the mid 40Cs range.

  1. Your temps are quite good for SWTOR, have you run memtest to check if your ram is good?
  2. Did that the other day, no errors. I usually let the PC run 24/7 and the other night it was making some weird noises. Almost like a bad PSU fan, but I turned the PC off and waited 5 minutes before powering it back on. I hit the inside of the case 1 more time with some air, and some small chunks of dust came out. Hopefully that's the culprit.
  3. Ok cool , try and locate the noise next time you hear it just in case your psu is playing up.
  4. Well it was definitely from PSU/GPU area. I think I'm going to take everything out and spray everything just to double check. No sense in buying fix it parts if it's dust and poor venting.
  5. Well if you listed all of your parts, we could possibly point out any possible weak points for you. Currently it looks like you have some dirty parts that need cleaning, but there can be other factors that we might be able to point out for you. It would also help us if you just recently had this problem or has this been going on for a while?
  6. I am the only one that thinks at 96C is very high for GPU temp?
  7. 96C on a 5850 is extremely high. Especially at stock clocks.

    I have 2, at 870/1200, and they barely reach 70C.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you're overheating, especially on the VRAM/VRM. Use GPUZ to see those temps.

    I only ever got the solid color lock up from OCing, but I forget which values caused it.

    OP: Try running the test at full screen regular burn levels 2xMSAA. Don't do the benchmark, just run it for at least 5 minutes or until the temp is leveled. I also suggest you use either CCC or MSI AFterburner to set the fan much higher, and make sure you have good case airflow. 96C is really hot.
  8. I just ran it and this is what I got to give you kind of a reference. I just the gfx cards yesterday so I wanted to run Furmark anyway.

    You do realize that under Furmark your temps will go higher then you have ever seen before? This is normal for Furmark to cause temps way above any other program.

    Yes, but even my Gigabyte 560 Ti, which normally under load is at 65C, at furmark doesn't exceed 82C. 96C is WAY TOO HIGH, even for FurMark.

    I just saw something else interesting in his first post:

    Quote:
    GPU temperatures (start/end): 83°C / 95°C


    If his starting temps are 83C there are other issues going on here. Either he has horrible air flow or the GPU heatsink isn't attached right.
  12. That's true insight. 83C idle is WAY too high.
  13. Yeah 83C is waaaay too high for idle/start temperature. It would be nice to know if this is true or not. Maybe he does have a cooling issue here or his configuration is so bad that he can't cool the components correctly.
