While playing Battlefield 3 on Max my GTX 570 Jumps to 99% and restarts. This has occured on games like minecraft and Planetside 2.
I Remeber seeing 2 sets of artifacts that correspond with Blips in EVGA Precision that i use to moniter GPU temp, Fanspeed, GPU Clock and Memory Clock, At the time of the artifacts both the memory clock and the GPU clock dropped to standard operating values. The memory clock went from 2048 to about 135 and then back up. This happened twice and then the card restarted.
Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I am unsure of what the problem is and i have tried 3 things to prevent overheating.
1. Took the side case cover off.
2. Increased the fan speed curve.
3. Dusted the inside and out of the Graphics card.
Nvidia GTX 570
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel Core i7-2600k CPU @ 3.40GHz (8CPUs) ~3.4GHz
OCZ 50 PSU 1000W
If you require more info about system specs just ask
I do not know what the temps at the time were, i will try and replicate the problem again.
I have not overclocked the GPU at all
I have a 1000W PSU so power should not be the problem
Model No. EliteXtreme 1000
I looked into the Memory clock specifactions for my Card and found out that it was set to 2100MHz while the manufacture says it should be 1900MHz, I have since lowered it to the recomended clock. A similar Mismatch was found when looking at the GPU clock, it was rated at 732MHz while it was set for 786MHz
