Windows 7: BSOD, after reformat, installed updates and drivers already

22 May 2014   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thank you so much for your help Essenbe!

What program, if any, should I use to set a custom fan profile? Or is that something I set in the BIOS? I know there is a way to do that, and I think my motherboard, has a system called"Cool & Quiet" which is an automated fan system, but I can totally change that to keep the cooler, I don't mind the sound, I have significant hearing loss, so it doesn't matter. If you have any programs that you recommend for changing fan speeds, any redirection so helpful. Somewhere in one of my posts I had talked about artifacting, but I'm not sure that it actually was, it just seemed to be chunking a little. That little orange donut didn't look as smooth, and when I moved the window around on the screen, it sort of chunked a little, or skipped. Anyways, so overall, this appears to be some type of overheating going on.

That card you have is a good card, but it is also extremely hot. To give you an example, my GTX 780 can run Furmark and never hit 70. I don't say that to brag or anything, but to show you how hot your card runs. It is just the 5000 cards have always run hot. You didn't say in your system specs which manufacturer your card is, but most come with a utility for monitoring and overclocking. Most of those utilities can set a custom fan profile and most are built based on MSI Afterburner, which is a free download. If you don't have a utility or can't find one from your manufacturer, download MSI Afterburner. It is basically an overclocking utility as are most of the manufacturer's utilities, but they also have some very good monitoring features as well as allowing you to set custom profiles. You can use it and not overclock the card. I wouldn't recommend you overclocking your card, as it gets hot enough as it is.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
