Default Re: FIX for GeForce 6 Series Badness under linux

Hi.

I just did the adjustment on the speed of the 3D on my XFX 6600GT.
Until I did the adjustment, my debian system, using the latest 1.077 driver would crash about 1 minute into running the beautiful KDE Opengl screensaver called Skyrocket.
I opened up the bios in nbitor and discovered that the speeds were
3D - 500
2D - 300.
After reading the above discussion, and not really caring about the speed that much, but with no hair left after the crashes of 1 minute, I changed the speeds to
3D 300
2D 300.

I now booted into Linux. I have watched the programs run for 30 minutes without crashing.

I thank you all for your help.

(Should I go for 400 ????)

It just occured to me that the official spec for the RAMDAC speed is 400 MHz(both for the 6800/GT/Ultra and the 6600/GT), I don't know if that could be related?

Anyway, mlaks, you never know until you try, ey :P You could always try putting them on 400 and see what happens. As far as I know they've got a overheating protection as well so if the 2D renderer(??) can't handle 400 MHz(as it was set to 300 originally) you won't be frying your videocard anyway.

Well, I do not know about AGP versions, I know PCIe versions run just fine at 425, because mine does. I would suggest sticking to the normal clock speed of your card, again, if you're paranoid about it, or if the extra 25 mhz on your 2d do not fix the problem at all, then you should go down to 400mhz. I have no problems running at 425mhz.

Just a quick note to say that the site is actually
http://www.mvktech.net/ and not http://www.mkvtech.net/

I'm sure most people worked this out though!

Gonna try this Fix and see if it sorts my Shake issues

At least by nvclock, my FX6600GT runs at 300Mhz (2D) and 500Mhz (3D).
I gather that the only way to get it stable is to drop the 3D speed to 2D level? Am I the only to be appalled by the in-sanity of this idea? Will 500/500 work?

Default Re: FIX for GeForce 6 Series Badness under linux

is it possible to change the clocks without flashing bios, using nvclock?
http://www.linuxhardware.org/nvclock/

i use the cvs version on my 6800NU and I get this:

# ./nvclock -i

While it does seem, as far as I can see, that there's no correlation between the core speed, core temperature and the Xid errors, guess there's not harm in giving it a try.

Cheers,
