Default Re: GeForce 6800 and random freezes

I only get the freezing if I enable fast writes AND overclock the graphics card. If I have fastwrites ON and don't overclock the card I still get no freezes.

I have a MSI Neo2 Platinum and a 128Mb Asus 6800GT.

Ok, ok, I forgot it Also forgot that you use a 6800, not a GT.

You did all those things to have it work properly? You know what I did? Nothing! Installed the board and that is it.

Sure. KV8 pro is a s754 board. The only thing which bothers me a little, is that I can't oc the cpu that well. It did 2400mhz at 1.65v in the DFI, but now it is not stable there even at 1.7v. The problem seems to be the stock cooling and the pasta (or what ). I didn't renew it when I swapped the mobos and it was dry and broken into small parts. Guess i have to buy a Freezer64. Though HTT was at 5x, maybe that was the problem. Did the ocing in WinXP with OCGuru, was too lazy to restart and enter the bios. I'll try to lower HTT, maybe it'll work.
The cpu is C0 stepping.

Sorry for the Off topic.

I got the Asus K8V-X because it supports ECC RAM and the temperature sensors are standard chips. I think the DFI has standard temperature sensors but certainly doesn't do ECC RAM.

I also have an ABIT AV8-Pro which I replaced with the Asus because Abit insists of connecting temperature and fan sensors to their own proprietary toy chip which is undocumented and will never allow you to use the temperature readings in your own programs, much less under Linux or FreeBSD. And that is although they do have a Winbond chip on it which reports the voltages fine. Also no support for ECC RAM.

The problem with the Asus is that it doesn't have a working PCI/AGP lock. But I overclock it anyway and it works fine even after beating up disk and network quite a bit.

The Asus A8V SE has working locks, ECC support and normal temperature readngs. I don't think there is a 754 board which does all of this.

I have gotten to the point that I am just tired of worrying about this stupid stutter bug. If the stutter occurs again on my system I'm going to be replacing my Chaintech ZNF3-150 Zenith for a Chaintech SK8T800 Via K8T800 motherboard. I'm tired of this issue.

Hi Martin, I've noticed that you have an Asus K8V-X, the same mobo I have. What video card do you have? Is it a 6 series card? If so, what driver's do you use? The via agp driver has been giving me problems and I can only use nvidia forceware drivers issued before the 75 release. All forceware drivers post 75 release disable the via agp bus and force my card to be run as a pci device, crippling performance. Did you experience the same problem?

S.O.

I have an eVGA 6800 Ultra with Zalman VF700-cu.

For Windoze, I just use whatever the newest official NVidia driver is. I didn't notice any problems. I didn't use Windows in the last 4 weeks, I think my drivers are 77.77.

I only use Windoze for a little gaming and otherwise have no clue about it, how do I check whether it is correctly using the AGP bus?

Hey Martin, I guess you would have to right click on your desktop, choose properties/settings/advanced and then click on the tab with your card's name (6800ultra). In the first page of your card's menu options you should see the processor name, IRQ, BIOS, TV encoder, then Adapter information. Under adapter information it will show what bus the card is operating on. Right now, for me, the bus is listed as AGP8x. I am using forceware 66.72 (I got it from guru3d.com). Previously, when I had forceware 78.01, the bus was listed as PCI 0x. Games I played suffered, roughly, a 50% cut in performance. My 3dmark05 score dropped from 4600 to 2000. So, I uninstalled the new forceware driver and installed the older one, which worked.

Is this happening to you? Again, thanks for all the help.

S.O.
