I'm having an issue with my EVGA GTX 570 Fermi card, my computer is freezing up within a couple of minutes in any game which requires a hard reset. Previously, my computer was BSOD'ing on MW3. That wasn't really an issue, don't really like that game anyway, but now its freezing on any game I play, and its really frustrating. Im running the 290.53 Nvidia drivers, and the card has never been overclocked. In fact I downclocked it from its EVGA clocked value to the stock nvidia settings of 735mhz and 1470mhz.
I had the same experience with an EVGA factory overclocked card..... (Kept getting "nVidia driver stopped working" errors) ..... 20 support calls, 5 RMA;s and 18 months later they finally replaced it with a next generation "reference" card and problem went away. I don't know what they do to their factory OC'd cards but I'll never buy another one.
They kept blaming everything else (memory, MoBo) you name it ..... but the same box had no issue at all with an Asus factory OC'd card (OC'd even more myself to 25% over reference )....even added a 2nd one in SLI and no problems.
Installed 285 drivers, crashed within a few minutes of entering a cod4 online match..help?
For a system using a single GeForce GTX 570 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 550 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.
Your AcBel Polytech iPower 660 can only deliver 350 Watts @ 45°C. When delivering that 350 Watts the combined +12 Volt continuous current is ~28 Amps maximum. That's not even anywhere near being sufficient to properly power your system configuration.
That power supply is the root of all your problems. It is an utter piece of ...
What would happen if your PSU can't cope with the load:
• bad 3D performance
• crashing games
• spontaneous reset or imminent shutdown of the PC
• freezing during gameplay
• PSU overload can cause it to break down
looks like 83c @ 75% fan speed? that picture is too small to see
that is normal temps as long as it stays right there.
your PSU is the problem. Buy a quality psu from Antech, Corsair, or Seasonic 600w or above and you should be set.
