Nintendo Switch review: Hands-on with the intuitive modular console and its disappointing games…
Hi all, sorry to burden you with a lot of issues in the title, but have been having some issues of late with my PC, and its imminent that I will need to spend some money, but at this stage I am not sure on what.
Get a cup of coffee or tea this is a long one.
Specs are :
i7920 OC to 3.5 (Now Stock) 6GB CORSIAR DOMINATOR RAM ASUS RAMPAGE EXTREME III (Latest Bios) Coolermaster 1000W PSU GTX 580 Phantom 3GB Graphics Card. Crucial SSD + 3 IDE HD'S
The system started getting BSOD errors , which I found out were related to marvel drivers. I Formated PC and wiped bios, and that problem solved. After taking the PC to bits and giving a clean, having put the computer back I tried switching it on and it would start up for 4 seconds (no beep) then power down, then repeats, then a 3rd time come on and post. Took PC apart again, put it all back, solved that issue (for now).
Now the latest, whist playing a game called H1Z1 I had noticed that my graphics card fans became more audable than usual i.e like its really working hard. Now for those of you that know H1Z1 , its not the most demanding of games compared to games like ARMA3 & BF4. Anyway in game the screen went black, the graphics card fans kicked in really hard, computer restarted and gave me BSOD error 116. (It did this a few times, and then started to get the three beeps at post and no visual on the screen)
The graphics card itself I have tried a host of drivers, new and old I cleaned out the graphics card and tried in another pci-e slot, got it going again. Tried Furmark and lasted about 4 seconds then black screen, fans going crazy , error 116.
Now I have replaced the PCI-E cables and the card now works in Furmark, however on 99% load after 10 seconds I hear ticking noise coming from the card. The card on idle is at 35 degrees, doesnt go over 70 on full load.
Thanks for reading, I guess the issue is the graphics card, but I am a touch sceptical about something else causing it to fail i.e a root cause, and I apreciate any help on this.
Hello thanks for the reply.
Its working okay now since I changed cables (Typical) However still not convinced this is gone.
Error code from last crash was :
bccode: 116 bcp1: fffffa80056ab2d0 bcp2: fffff8800fd7a1a4 bcp3: ffffffffc000009a bcp4: 0000000000000004 os version: 617601 service pack: 1_0
Hello, after 30 mins gaming the GPU went to 74 in game black screen then BSOD. Also whilst running the game the fans started becoming more audible again, the card (even the plastic cover) was very hot to touch.

have a read here
Fruit Bat /\0/\ , having problems with that page especially the download fix link.
Hi many thanks. Ive since opened up the card properly, the thermal paste was dry(ish) and cracked. Ive wiped clean and added a thin layer of some thermal past. The card is cleaned up like brand new now. If it fails now then there is nothing more I can do (i think)
Ive purchased another card just to test and see if I get same errors,will post back asap
Okay installed a new totally different brand of card, still same issue. So I guess we may be looking at PSU or Board.
Any thoughts please guys ?
Hard drives set up possibly? 74C for GPU under load is ok.
Thanks Ive tried just having one hard drive running, does the same thing. The voltages in bois look okay also, ive reseated the ram sticks to see if the issue occurs.
