    Weird GPU Problems

    Its very odd! I was very confused. I was able to start windows but couldn't run any benchmarks. I was able to open browsers and apps but nothing intended to stress the system. I was concerned about whether I had seated it properly or not as well so I was extremely careful when I put it back in slot 1, and it worked fine once placed, though this morning it's back to being trash. I haven't run 3Dmark but I did run performancetest (gpubenchmark) and it tested above average (6100 ish compared to 5800 average), but when its having problems it will test closer to 1600. I will run firestrike tonight to see. I wish I had the money for a new gpu, so I guess the next step would be to drop it off to a shop eh?

    Weird GPU Problems

    So i actually was not able to run any benchmark software while the card was in slot 2, and i am not sure if i know how to force it to work. It was also not showing any sensors in hwinfo when connected through slot 2. That being said, i ran another benchmark in unigine heaven with the card inserted in to slot 1. This time the card drew an average of about 105w (way more than the 60 from an hour ago) and benchmarked at 1129 compared to 325 an hour ago. I honestly don't know what changed cause i didnt change any settings. This is what usually happens and it's why im trying not to replace things. - did another benchmark (catzilla 720p) and got 14.8k, compared to 3.6k earlier today. Also gpu power went up to 130w, compared to a previous max of 60.

    Weird GPU Problems

    I have two pcie 3.0 x16 slots, so i tried plugging in to the other one and i think it's not functioning correctly. I had to update bios to force it to run at Gen 3, but it still shows up in HWinfo as: PCIe v3.0 x16 (8.0 GT/s) @ x8 (2.5 GT/s). Additionally it now only shows GPU temp in sensor status, and shows link speed at 2.5 GT/s. Any idea how i can make sure it's using Gen 3 besides setting it up that way in bios or is this a hw issue? Edit: I went back in to the bios and confirmed when the card is in slot 2 (labeled pciex16_2), it's locked at x8. I am now assuming this is a mobo issue.

    Weird GPU Problems

    Hello! I actually did a re-install earlier, and the problem persisted. I downloaded HWInfo like you said, and ran the Unigine Heaven bench. Again GPU power remained under 50%, and this time i could see GPU power averaging about 44w, maxing out at 65w. Im pretty sure the 960 has a suggested power demand of 120w, and in real testing i saw it reported to draw closer to 180. Does that confirm a hardware issue? Wouldn't that throttle clock or memory speed? Thanks for your help

    so you think it's most likely a motherboard issue?

    I did this now and it looks like they're off... by a fair bit. GPU-Z says my core clock should be 1253Mhz, but it's benchmarking at 1380. The memory clock is accurate (1753Mhz vs 1752.8 actual). Would benchmarking at a higher clock rate give me frame rate issues?

    Weird GPU Problems

    Hi all! First time poster here, usually just a lurker but I have run in to a problem and exhausted my own ideas, so I come to you for help! For the past few months my GTX 960 has been giving me problems booting, bsods (occasionally), and incredibly low benchmark performance (1800 ish on performancemark). The problem is all of these issues seem to be intermittent. For instance two weeks ago i did a performancemark test and scored over 6000, today i did another one and it was 1668. I have done everything imaginable to try and figure out why this is happening, but i have no idea. I have tried the following: - tested the card at a local shop (booted fine, wasn't benchmarked) - removed card and re-inserted - flashed CMOS and updated BIOS - different PCiE slots (and pcie 8 pin cables) - updating drivers - updating windows - overclocking - underclocking - furmark, catzilla, ksi kombuster, performancemark I'm not sure what else i can do, and I'm not quite ready to blow money on new parts yet as my partner and i just bought a house so money is kind of tight. System Specs: Asus Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Core i5 4690K MSI GTX 960 4gb 100 ME 8 GB DDR3 Corsair Ram 120gb ssd 2tb hdd **forgot to include this originally, but the PSU is a Corsair TX750W, i tested all 4 pcie 12v cables and had the same issues with each.** As a reference, i was playing Monster Hunter World yesterday averaging 50-55 fps, i go to try it today and im averaging 14-17fps. Any tips would be super valuable so thank you in advance. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
