Question about Computers & Internet
Constant 3d lockups... cant run 3d test or games, i managed to get CS:source to work for and maybe an hour before it crashes, after i used ATi Tool to underclock it by 100MHz on the core and mem. clock. I have 4 case fans(tried several dif. layouts), but my temp. usually crashes at only 57-59C. Ive read many forums and most say its faulty drivers, or overheating. Ive also tried a few dif. drivers. Nothing seems to make it stable... PLSSSS HELP
These can get warm/Hot under constant use.
If it,s new i,d suggest you may have a faulty card.
I,m not sure whether you can actually remove the fan from the GPU Chip, but if you can.
I,d reseal with a quality thermal compound such as arctic-silver or similar. Theres a possibility that the card has overheated and damaged the thermal-seal between gpu and heatsink.
The other option, is to direct a fan blowing cool air towards the card, rather than trying to extract air from it.
If it,s new it,s faulty ( get it replaced )
If i can be of any further assistance/help.
Please post here.
Many thanks mike @ compurepair.
