PNY 1080 FE crashing or overheating? super loud fan

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

i built a new PC about a month ago, the only thing that inst brand new is my graphics card. its a PNY 1080 FE i have been using this card for about 2 years now and haven't had any issues. today i was playing COD MW and my computer crashed. all of my screens went black but i could still hear sound until i restarted my comp. i just opened call of duty again and loaded into a game and instantly the screens go black and the fan on my card starts spinning extremely fast and it is very loud. it does the same thing when i open world or Warcraft. the first thing i tried was updating my drivers(which were like a month out of date).

 

currently i am using the onboard graphics, and have removed the card from the computer. just wondering if anyone has any advice on what i should do next. i do have new thermal paste but idk if opening the card will void warranty or not. i honestly dont even know if it is still under warennty though.

Did you even check the temps of that gpu? Specially just before it crushes

Hmm, could be many things. I would start with DDU (display driver uninstall). IT can be found here: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

 

This will reboot you into safe mode, totally destroy everything to do with all graphics drivers, and then you can try and instal the nvidia driver again fresh.

 

If that doens't help, it could be a weird OS issue, and may end up needed to be reformatted. But before we get there, do you have another PC you can try the 1080 in? Or a friends PC you can throw it in just to test?

FE cards usually use the old blower style coolers on them, and they do tend to run a little toasty from the start, so the thermal compound on the die could be a little crusty, especially after 2 years of gaming. i crack my cards open at least once a year to reapply compound and to make sure memory and VRM heat pads are up to snuff. my msi 1080 gaming x runs ice cold under 100% loads, like the fuzzy donut of death. so, if it were me, before hurting the hardware by booting it back up and forcing it to run, id pop the card out and take the cooler off and check that paste, and check the fan and heatspreader inside there. it could be caked up with fuzzy donuts too

so i ran the DDU and then put the card back in and restarted. my computer then automatically installed some drivers from 7/24/19 so i downloaded the latest and installed them which is from 1/6/20 is there a way to disable the auto install of the other drivers?

i tried to check the temps with MSI afterburner and it was sitting at 35c. as soon as i opened call of duty it crashed again, the temp was showing 38c right b4 that. i am about to toss it in my old comp to see what happens.

Edit: now the computer wont even start up b4 the card crashes, as soon as i get past POST the fan gets super loud and doesn't do anything past that. i have never heard a fan so loud before, it sounds like its about to take off into space.

so i put the card in my old computer and it seems to work fine, temps are in mid 30s and no crashes. i guess i will try to reformat and reinstall everything next. i also tried resetting my BIOS settings because i did change the mem frequency but idk if that could of had anything to do with it.

Change the mem frequency of your RAM, or video card memory?

 

If it works in the other PC, its not the GPU that is bad. Its possible its a crazy windows glitch, its really hard to know for sure. You can try a different PCIe slot in the motherboard, its possible that would help. Unlikely, but possible.

RAM frequency, so i put the card in a diff PCI slot and it seems to be working now. im gonna toss my old 670 in the top slot to see if maybe it was a bad slot or something.

Are you running any additional software in the background? 
 

Does the system crash just idling?

Surfing the web? Or just in full screen 3d applications?

Could try a benchmark, as ive has the crashing issue with the game itself. 
 

One a side note, how long is the warranty on the card? Does their warranty state it can’t be maintained or does it need registered for it to be valid?
