I recently built a new build with following specs;
corsair ax 850
zotac gtx 660ti amp edition
corsair vengence 8gb ddr3 1600mhz cl10
cooler master storm trooper.
For a first couple of days everything seemed to work fine, but when i play games like borderlands 2 or devil may cry after couple of hours or minutes(random) of gaming my gpu crashes i.e i get no display for 2-4 secs and then it recovers and the game stops responding. I checked with msi afterburner the temps were around 62,but the weird thing was just after the crash the power consumption shot up to 400% which usually is 90-110 % when games are working fine.What could be causing this.? Help is highly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.
nope nothing like that,but i guess that is the case.
btw i am running win 7 64 bit and gpu drivers are 313.96 beta
had similar problems with other versions but frequency seems to be reduced with the beta drivers.
Try to underclock it. I got crashed instantly whenever I opened a game and it said "display driver had stopped responding and has recovered". I underclocked my 7950 to only 750mhz and it works perfectly since
