Speedfan: -9.23v on -12v? Screenshot encl... Eep


Recommended Posts

So, Im using the enermax whisper II PSU listed in the recommended psu's thread. My EVGA card was glicthing and the first thing the support guys told me is to run speedfan and check the voltages.

 

Here they are... What does the low -12V mean? Could one of my aux connectors not be working right or not connected on the motherboard?

Can you explain the problem in more details please? Which drivers are you running for your motherboard and video card?

Im running 6.70s, 81.98 or whatever eVGA recommends on the site video drivers. When I get into games its beautiful for about a minute, then i experience severe artifacting. This artifacting continues even after I exit the game, and if I tried to run the game for a while after it started, it will appear on teh bios screen etc.

 

Lots of people on the evga forums reporting the exact same issue with the exact same card.

 

Should the -12V bother me? What could that be? All of the +v readings are good

Your vid card sounds like it is overheating. To test, you could try having a big fan blow on it with your case open. If it doesn't artifact, or last longer before artifacting, then your vid card is getting too hot. I would RMA the card.

I underclocked the card to 427/1000 and it still did this (albeit later).

 

If I move the card away from directly over into the northbridge fan, it will run at 8x PCIe right? In the lower slot

 

 

think that might help? its like smack dab right ontop of it, pretty long card

Yeah = I kinda spent my bankroll on the machine so Im gonna have to wait a few weeks for the RMA process i guess. and alot of people are getting 2nd defective cards on eVGA, seems like quite a large batch all is experiencing the same problems.

 

One guy with a SLI-DR expert said he got his to work fine changing the pcie settings(basically running 8x), but I dont ahve those in my bios
