Default Re: Evga GTX 280 FTW crash problems - not overheating

I had this happen once when I played COD4 with dual cards enabled. I used to do this when I had SLI. The computer just completely shut down after about 5-10 minutes of playing. When I set dual cards back to "no," the problem didn't happen again. I've played Crysis at 1920X1028 with most settings on Very High with no problems. I even played more than an hour. One time the screen froze for a couple seconds during a firefight, but the game then continued with no problems. I'm using one PCI-E six pin and a PCI-E 6-pin to 8-pin adapter. I have a 750W power supply.

Also, This thread has provided me with some info I was unaware of. It may be that the combination of my current board only having PCIE 1.0 (1.1?) and the PSU using a 6 pin to 8 pin cable was starving my card for power.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow / Wednesday if that is in fact the case. I ordered a Q9300 and Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4.

I'm also using Ultra X3, but have no issues with dual 280s SLI. When did you buy your PSU?

Default Re: Evga GTX 280 FTW crash problems - not overheating

I bought it a few months ago, but the thread I linked in one of my earlier posts may give some insight into the problem. From the other thread I linked (This thread), the fact that PCIE 2.0 slots deliver 150W could be the difference between why your setup has no problems, and mine does. My new X48 board will be here today and I'll know for sure after I have it installed and running. My plan is to remove the "temporary) 2 x 6 pin to 8 pin adapter when I install the new motherboard.

Default Re: Evga GTX 280 FTW crash problems - not overheating

I'm having a similar problem as far as I can tell. I got the EVGA gtx280 superclocked edition, and i have a 660 watt PSU. I turn on age of conan and after about 5 minutes exactly as other say, my computer goes dead, the screen doesn't go blank, there's a pop in the speakers (which is what my comp does when it shuts off) and all fans everything goes off simultaneously in a split second, it so sudden I don't get sad until about 2 seconds after it's off It only happens when i'm playing conan (haven't tried any other games, because i've not installed any). If i install the superclocked editions OC software that comes with it, it automatically clocks it way too high and the temp goes up over 250F. If i shut off the application and it doesn't seem to do it. So i've been monitoring and adjusting fan speeds with nTune. For the sake of power consumptions, i've unplugged two hard drives, which leave me with single OS drive, also removed 1 cd drive, and '2' 80mm case fans. There are people on here with 1000watt PSU's which makes me think this problem may not be universally correctable until nVidia releases the patch. But if you guys have an suggestion for my specific situation, I'd be eternally grateful. I'd like to avoid RMA if I can. For the five minutes it does run conan, it runs it well.

Here's my specs:

one EVGA gtx280 superclocked edition (pci-e slot 1)
Core 2 Duo 3.0 ghz
Modular Raid max rx-630a 630 watt PSU
g skill DDR2 800 5-5-5-15
Asus p5n-t deluxe, triple SLI (only '2' pci-e 2.0, the other is 1 or 1.1 dunno)
nForce 780i chipset (mother board has no fan on bridge, but has a copper pipe system which extends to other parts of the boards, but is based at the bridge with a large copper heatsink. I've seen pictures of this motherboard from manufacturer with a cyclone fan on top of the bridge, however, i got an open-box motherboard from new egg, wish i hadn't. It seems to run faily cool anyhow.)
500 gig seagate serial ATA2
Sony DVD rewritable

I apologize if this post is TMI, i'm new to tech forums.
Thank you all for your help

dancid : Did your PSU got 8pin PCIEx connector? or you use 2x6pin PCIE connector to 8pin PCIE connector?

Yes i forgot to mention, my PSU comes with two 6 pins and one 8 pin, but my motherboard uses the 8 pin. So i'm forced to use BOTH plug adapters. I also forgot to mention that I'm running vista bus. 64

The motherboard 8-pin is different than the video card 8-pin. Thank God for you that your motherboard uses the 8-pin EPS and not the 4-pin, or you would have used that and burned your video card...

they put the same plug shapes and pin number on a power supply plug and expect you to differentiate between the two? Do you think I'll have to wait for a driver than?

Default Re: Evga GTX 280 FTW crash problems - not overheating

Just a quick update on my situation. I took the card to a friend's house and he is having NO ISSUES. My next step is to try using the adapter for the 8 pin instead of the 6+2 pin from the PSU. If that doesn't work, I will try another PSU in my same system. One thing I am noticing from other reports online is that many (if not all) of the reports of the screen going blank are using Vista x64 of some kind. This could support the idea of it being a driver issue.

UPDATE:

With my new PCIE 2.0 motherboard and new Processor, I went back to my original 6-pin to 8-pin cable that was supplied with my power supply. It's all working fine - no crashes in Crysis or Eve Online yet, so I'm hopeful. Maybe the extra power coming from the PCIE 2.0 slot is enough.

Also, I emailed Ultra about my PSU. One of their techs responded pretty quickly and said that the 12V rail on my PSU is actually split into 2 seperate rails. They are also going to send me a schematic that depicts which connectors are which rails. If they actually deliver on that promise, I'll be extremely impressed.

I already started with a mild overclock on my new CPU (3.0GHz) - next will be trying this 280 GTX FTW at around 700 core and 2500-2550 on the RAM.
