Hi,

What are these "stress tests" that the GPU runs?

THey are logged under the Debug Settings in the control panel. Is it bad to have them? They haven't been run until today, when TWO ran.

Any constructive comments welcome.

I see you are running the GT at 425/1130. What are your default clock speeds?

BTW that is an error that usually occurs when you overclock too high.

I'm actually at 400/1100 now, but my defaults are supposed to be 350/1000. I'll try taking it down a notch or two.

Also, it says that the tests pass, but... not going to risk it.

The error you saw isn't necessarily damaging in the short term, BUT it is an indication that the clock speeds were a little too high therefore stressing the card. It's good that you dropped the clock speeds down some. 400/1100 is going to provide plenty of power for your gaming needs, and your card will survive longer as well :)
