So my gtx 570 died tonight, I was in the middle of playing Arkham City and the whole computer just turned off as if someone unplugged the computer. On restart it did post but nothing was displayed on the screen, popped in an old gtx 285 and it was working fine, precision x didn't recognize my 570 though. I installed the 570 on another rig, nothing was displayed on screen.
Not sure what happened but would like to know, the card was overclocked from 732mhz to 840mhz and voltage was set at 1.1mv, is that too high of an overclock to brick my card? Fan speeds were adjusted to increase as the temperature increased, I never saw the temp go above 80c.
Also I plan on buying an EVGA GTX 770 ACX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130921
My current rig is
i7 860 OC 3.4 GHz
evga p55 ftw mobo
The 770 should be compatible with my p55 ftw but if you guys have any concerns let me know.
