Solved Is my GTX 680 dying? Tags: Nvidia Graphics Last response: June 13, 2012 10:57 PM in Graphics & Displays Share lomboy13 June 13, 2012 9:03:37 PM I can't seem to overclock either core or memory past 30 without it crashing. I have a 1050w Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid, so insufficient power isn't the case. I just starting seeing odd lines covering textures in Skyrim and weird shadow striping/lines in pretty much all my games (BF3, Skyrim, CS:S, and more) I already rolled back my drivers to 301.10 and driver swept multiple times. Please do not tell me to reinstall or roll back my drivers. It is not the issue. I requested an RMA from my computer manufacturer to get a replacement card. Smart move? I have a EVGA Superclocked GTX 680.

I did. In fact, I even reduced the clocks below defaults as well. m 0 l Related resources GTX 760 Dying During Startup? - Forum Help w/upgrading a dying GTX 550 ti? - Forum GTX 560TI dying...please suggest replacement card! - Forum gtx680 sli vs gtx980 - Forum msi gtx 680 lightning and asus gtx 770 dc ii oc - Forum Can't find your answer ?

The card is probably going bad, but there's an off chance it's not getting the voltage it needs from the PSU. I would RMA the card and see if the replacement card gives you problems too. If it does, I would investigate your PSU. Share lomboy13 June 13, 2012 9:30:31 PM blade061188 said:Yea, artifacting at stock settings is either a GPU issue or a power supply issue.

Is there anything I can do to check if my PSU is giving my card enough power before I send the card back? m 0 l Deemo13 a b Î Nvidia June 13, 2012 10:41:16 PM lomboy13 said:Is there anything I can do to check if my PSU is giving my card enough power before I send the card back? There really isnt a way to test the PSU. In theory it should be more than enough to power the card. You may have just gotten a bad card, sometimes that happens. You'll get a fresh one in the mail. m 0 l lomboy13 June 13, 2012 10:57:05 PM Yeah, it's got to be the card. I knew something had to be wrong when I got continuous crashing after barely overclocking the card in the first place. I can't wait to see the ACTUAL potential of this card when I'm overclocking it for real! m 0 l lomboy13 June 13, 2012 10:57:17 PM Best answer selected by lomboy13. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
