Computation error - Einstein@home

GPU might be unstable for compute uses. It can be more stressful, or at least differently stressful than gaming. If it is factory OC (most cards are), manually remove it.

 

I have a GTX 970 like that, fine in games, but errors on compute quickly. I don't recall if it was the core or the ram that needed to be reduced since I haven't run it in a while.

Some of my einstein@home tasks fail with computation errors. What can I do about this?

Oh ok, I've taken off my overclock (+150/+450) and I will see if that is more stable now

 

Edit: it is more stable now, no errors since I removed the overclock
